The lawmakers told their local media that Trump has "taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea".

President Barack Obama, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, is the most recent American recipient. But talk of the peace prize for the U.S. president has been steadily gaining traction in America's conservative circles ever since Mr Trump first expressed his willingness to engage directly with the ruler of the hermit kingdom earlier this year.

Other U.S. lawmakers, along with foreign-policy analysts, are less sanguine about the meeting between Trump and Kim.
