Pope Francis praised on Sunday the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and said he hoped it would lead to peace.

He said at his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square  that it was  a good example of “the culture of encounter” and expressed hope that such a significant gesture will be a further step on the road to peace, not only on that peninsula, but for the good of the entire world.

Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot in North Korea on Sunday when he met its leader, Kim Jong Un, in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas and agreed to resume stalled nuclear talks.
