Trump and Kim sign unspecified documents

While Donald Trump said that the denuclearisation process of North Korea is expected to start "very quickly", Kim Jong added, "world will see a major change".

He flew into Singapore late Monday to be present for the historic first summit between the two leaders.

The US side however reportedly believes that an immediate tangible outcome is unlikely following the meet. But he added "our hostages" are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped.

Both men walked to Trump's bullet-proof limousine, nicknamed " The Beast", and looked in at the rear seat, with Trump apparently showing Kim something inside.

Earlier this morning, the tweeter-in-chief expressed his elation about being in Singapore and feeling "excitement in the air".

Joint Statement of President Donald J Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea at the Singapore Summit.

In a September 2017 speech in front of the United Nations, President Trump referred to Kim as "Rocket Man" and threatened to "totally destroy North Korea", which earned a rare rebuke directly from Kim describing the president as a "frightened dog" and "mentally deranged US dotard".

The president planned to stop in Guam and Hawaii on the way back to Washington. Trump grasped Kim's right arm as they shook, and then, later, took hold of Kim's left arm as they turned to face the cameras and the world, both their expressions momentarily deadening before they turned to face each other again, and smiled. In 2015 the presidents of China and Taiwan met face-to-face for the first time in Singapore, and earlier this month, it hosted U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and his counterparts from the Indo-Pacific region for the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual gathering of security officials and academics.

It was a striking about-face from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged US dotard".

An American president and a North Korean dictator are meeting for the first time. Or, it could amount to little more than a much-photographed handshake.

"I feel really great". The most important one, says CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy, appears to be a commitment by the North "to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Shortly before the summit began, Mr Trump tweeted that his top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, had suffered a heart attack and was in hospital.

Here's Mr Trump and Mr Kim walking (with Mr Trump one step ahead) towards their one-on-one meeting which lasted for 40 minutes.

As many foreign policy experts, religious leaders, and human rights advocates have pointed out, denuclearizing the Korean peninsula is a critical security goal.

"I can only say this", Pompeo said.
