The most weird moments from Kim-Trump summit

The most weird moments from Kim-Trump summit

But they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters.

The summit is being held at a hotel on Sentosa, a popular tourist island a few hundred metres off the Singapore mainland and started at 1pm.

Mr Trump made the comments as they walked together to a larger meeting along with officials from their delegations.

Trump is hoping to make a legacy-defining deal that some say could earn him a Nobel Peace Prize.

At an April inter-Korean summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, it was only the following day that KCNA reported on the talks, which they called "historic" and a "groundbreaking development".

He's seen ushering Kim into a meeting room.

"We may be able to recoup a little bit of that, but I think it is a cost that we're willing to pay and it's our contribution to an worldwide endeavor, which is in our profound interests", he added.

Almost 7,800 United States troops remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 war.




After greeting each other, the two leaders planned to sit for a one-on-one meeting that a U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said could last up to two hours, with only translators joining them. "Many people in the world will think of this as a scene from a fantasy.science fiction movie". "Very, very good. Good relationship".

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations" while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

The dollar jumped to a 3-week top on Tuesday and Asian shares rose on the news.

Members of the U.S. delegation, including USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo, right, and John Bolton, national security adviser, left, and North Korean advisers watch a television screen showing the meeting.

Earlier the two leaders shook hands and posed for photographs, before moving inside the hotel to talk to reporters. The menu showed an East-West collation involving beef short ribs, braised cod and sweet and sour crispy pork, along with Haagen Dazs ice cream. "It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more".

As the cameras captured the moment, Trump quipped: "Very nice".

Mr Trump will leave the country that same evening to return to the US.

Though small, Singapore is also wealthy, and able to shoulder the cost of the historic summit, which would appeal to cash-strapped North Korea. According to Reuters, earlier this month Singapore's Defense Minister Ng Eng commented on Singapore paying for numerous expenses of the sit down between Trump and Kim.
