Kim, Trump arrive in Singapore for landmark summit

Kim, Trump arrive in Singapore for landmark summit

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds.

The US President, who is more than twice Kim's age, then appeared to lead the way to the library where they held a one-on-one meeting, placing his hand on the North Korean leader's counterpart's back.

As the historic first meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader began in Singapore, images of Trump and Kim exchanging handshakes and warm words drew jubilant reactions in Seoul and hopes for a new beginning with Pyongyang.

"The Reality TV-Star Trump just pulled off the photo-op of a lifetime", said Beatrice Fihn, executive director of Nobel Peace Prize 2017 victor International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.

Mr Kim is notoriously paranoid about leaving behind person and biological information about himself when he travels overseas.

North Korea is seeking a security guarantee - possibly including a peace treaty formally ending the Korean War - and the removal of the U.S.'s nuclear umbrella protecting allies South Korea and Japan. "Just means we get home a little later in the evening", Trump said. "But I also think Trump has some decent men with him".

Pompeo laid out some of the US cards on Monday, saying the administration was sticking to its demand for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the North.




Rodman grew emotional in the interview as he recalled former President Barack Obama failing to take him seriously when he returned from Pyongyang with a message from Kim after one of his trips.

Trump, who had insisted he would know "within the first minute" if Kim was serious about denuclearization, said he "felt really great" and that it was his "honor" to meet with the North Korean dictator. But the North has long sought an end to the USA military presence in the South, where Washington has around 28,000 troops stationed to protect it from its neighbour.

Details were not shared about how the discussions have progressed so far and Trump and Kim have yet to meet face-to-face.

Pompeo said the summit should set the framework for "the hard work that will follow", insisting that North Korea had to move toward complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.

Trump said Saturday that he believes the North Korean leader will "surprise on the upside". Funds for military activities are obtained from remittances that come from the forced labor of North Koreans sent overseas, as well as forced labor domestically.

Responding to a query whether he would invite Kim to the White House, the US President said: "Absolutely, I will".

Trump also says he is open to visiting Kim some day in Pyongyang.
