In June, Donald Trump made history after he stepped foot into North Korea and shook hands with Kim Jong-un in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.

Previously to that, the pair of controversial world leaders had met at a summit in Singapore in June of 2018.

A year from that moment and North Korea has chosen to commemorate it with a series of stamps showing the duo shaking hands and also signing a joint agreement.

The stamps have reportedly been obtained by the Japanese media outlet Kyodo News from a stamp shop in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

A total of three stamps have been released so far, one featuring the handshake, the second the signing of the document and thirdly the document itself.

A worker in the shop told Kyodo News that the stamps were released on June 12, with another set featuring images of their meeting in North Korea from earlier this year.

However, their second meeting which took place in Vietnam in February, which ended abruptly, is unlikely to be immortalised in the form of a stamp

Images of the stamps were captured by Kyodo News in a video which you can view below.
