North Korean state media released gushing reports of Kim Jong Un’s Demilitarized Zone summit with President Donald Trump, as the regime sought to use another history-making meeting with the U.S. leader to validate its policy decisions.

The front page of North Korea‘s ruling party Rodong Sinmun newspaper was dominated by a seven-photo splash of Trump making the first crossing of any sitting U.S. president into North Korea, while the country’s main KCNA news agency said the meeting marked a “dramatic turn” of events.
