President Donald Trump tweeted Friday morning that good things are happening on the Korean peninsula and that the Korean war is coming to an end.

The tweets come after news that South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met to further discuss denuclearization of the peninsula and strengthening ties between the two countries.

"After a furious year of missile launches and Nuclear testing, a historic meeting between North and South Korea is now taking place. Good things are happening, but only time will tell!" Trump tweeted.

Trump followed up with another tweet that the Korean War was to end.

"KOREAN WAR TO END! The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!" Trump tweeted.

The leaders of North and South Korea agreed to officially end the war between the two countries, according to CNN.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong Un, signed the "Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula," at the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that has divided the two countries for more than six decades.

Following the signing ceremony, the two leaders clasped hands and hugged in a symbolic act of togetherness after a full day of meetings, including a 30-minute private conversation beamed live around world.

Former CIA Director and now Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea and met with Kim to prepare for the planned upcoming summit between the North Korean leader and Trump. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released photos on Twitter showing Pompeo and Kim standing together shaking hands.

The summit between the two leaders is expected to take place sometime in the next two months.
