Trump, Kim reach hands across history

Trump, Kim reach hands across history

As per an American media outlet, the meeting today between the two leaders could also mark the official end of the Korean war of 1950-53.

The preliminary talks were meant to lay the groundwork before the two leaders meet tomorrow.

Kim is expected to depart from Singapore on Tuesday afternoon at around 4 p.m. local time, which is roughly seven hours after the summit is set to begin, Bloomberg reported. He says, "We're going to have a great discussion and a terrific relationship".

Mr Kim and Mr Trump are staying in separate hotels, not far from each other, and security is high across the area.

The outcome may determine the fate of North Korea's nuclear programme.

The United States and South Korea are not now talking about withdrawing any of the roughly 26,000 USA troops on the Korean peninsula, Mattis said at a Pentagon press briefing. Since then, he's launched almost 100 missiles and conducted North Korea's most powerful nuclear tests.

It has been speculated that during the summit Kim is likely to ask for immunity against sanctions.

After those talks, Pompeo told reporters he was "optimistic" about the summit. "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction ... those measures will increase".

It said China plays an "indispensable" role in helping North Korea join the worldwide community and could also help the North open up its economy.

The agency heralded the summit as part of a "changed era".

"Up until now, it's only been the North Koreans who have made concessions", said Chang, a Daily Beast contributor and author of "The Coming Collapse of China".

All of this is a far cry from the war of words between the two leaders previous year.

President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un concluded an extraordinary summit Tuesday with lofty promises by the American president to take care of a "very risky problem" and Kim forecasting "major change for the world".

Mr Kim spent the day mostly out of view - until he left his hotel for a late-night tour of Singapore sights, including the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, billed as the world's biggest glass greenhouse.
