North Korean state media early Tuesday broadcast its first video of President Trump’s historic summit with Kim Jong Un, including footage of Trump saluting a North Korean officer.

In parts of the lengthy, 42-minute long video from North Korea’s KCTV news channel, Kim can be seen shaking Trump’s hand before the president turns to shake the hand of a North Korean officer standing next to Kim. The officer, confused, salutes Trump instead, prompting the president to salute back.

U.S. presidents generally salute U.S. service members, but do not salute members of other nation’s militaries.

CNN reports that other exclusive footage broadcast Thursday from North Korean state media included shots of Kim preparing for the summit on his plane and lounging in at the luxury resort in Singapore, where the summit was held.
