SEOUL (Reuters) - The faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were first and foremost on North Korea ’s official party newspaper on Wednesday as state media hailed Tuesday’s historic summit between the two men.

Newly released video footage from North Korean state media shows President Donald Trump returning a salute to a North Korean military general during this week's summit in Singapore, an extraordinary display of respect from a US president to a top officer of a hostile regime.

In the military, returning a salute from a military officer of a friendly foreign nation is common practice for US military officers and considered a display of military professionalism. There is no rule that a US president is obliged to return a salute, which is considered a sign of mutual respect.

After Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un walk down a colonnade to shake hands, the pair walk together into a room with various members of Kim's delegation, the video shows.

Trump starts to shake hands with those in the room. Upon encountering North Korean Gen. No Kwang Chol, who was in full uniform, Trump first extends his hand, to which the general responds with a salute. Trump then salutes back, then extends his hand again and the two men shake hands.

CNN has reached out to the White House and National Security Council for comment.

Trump frequently salutes people he sees in a military uniform, and he saluted Singapore military officials while visiting there for the summit with Kim. But North Korea operates one of the most oppressive regimes on Earth, and despite the President's declaration on Wednesday that the country is "no longer a nuclear threat," it is considered a major US adversary.

Trump's salute also evokes criticism President Barack Obama received early in his presidency when he bowed to Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah. At the time, Trump called Obama an "amateur."

CNN's Noah Gray, John Kirby, Jennifer Deaton, Barbara Starr and Ryan Browne contributed to this report.
