'I'm so happy': Dennis Rodman weeps as Trump and Kim meet

'I'm so happy': Dennis Rodman weeps as Trump and Kim meet

The two adversaries also agreed to establish new relations "in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity" and said they would work on recovering "POW/MIA remains".

At around 6 p.m. (6 a.m. Monday ET) motorcycles and police vehicles were seen gathering outside the St. Regis Hotel, where the leader is staying during the highly-anticipated summit. Trump said he is confident the meeting will be a "tremendous success" and that "we will have a tremendous relationship, I have no doubt".

"We're going to take care of a very big and very unsafe problem for the world", Trump said.

Pompeo also said that Trump had called Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean president Moon Jae-in.

The reason a USA president has never met a North Korean leader is that the United States and North Korea have been, and continue to be, at war.

As the two flags hung side-by-side in the backdrop for the first time ever, both Kim and Trump expressed hope that their summit would be fruitful. They then resumed their walk.

The handshake took place in front of a row of alternating U.S. and North Korean flags at the Capella Hotel, a former British colonial barracks converted into a luxury hotel on Singapore's Sentosa island resort.




But, with cameras of the world's press trained on them, they displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie as they met on the verandah of the Capella, a refurbished 19th century British regimental officers' mess.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim are both looking for political victories that will help them at home. "We will be tremendously successful", Trump said before their private session.

The event-specific symbol features what appears to be a high-five between a hand representing the USA president and one representing the North Korean dictator known for executing his political enemies and exiling large swaths of his nation to prison camps, where they face starvation and torture. The two countries remain technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice instead of a peace treaty.

From there, the two will engage in more talks with advisers joining them through a working lunch.

Kim was heard telling Trump through an interpreter: "I think the entire world is watching this moment". I thought I was going to play basketball and meet the people and that was it. He lauded Kim as a "very smart, very good negotiator", saying the North Korean leader "might want to do this as much or more than me". "Very, very good. Good relationship".

Kim also appeared to be focused on his own domestic audience, albeit it one without a vote.

He would not say whether that included the possibility of withdrawing US troops from the Korean Peninsula, but stressed the context of the discussions was "radically different than ever before".
