When Trump Met Kim

US President Donald Trump gestures as he meets with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un at the start of their historic US-North Korea summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore Trump and Kim make history with a handshake

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have shaken hands to mark the start of a summit in Singapore, the first ever meeting between a United States and North Korean leader.

As for where Kim will spend the night, he's opted for the St. Regis Singapore, where it is believed he has checked into the hotel's $11,500-a-night Presidential Suite.

Trump has taken keen interest in the pageantry of the day, insisting the pictures beamed around the world reflect a commanding leader making a decisive, world-altering move. NY time - in front of reporters, the president and the North Korean leader secluded themselves on Singapore's Sentosa island for roughly 45 minutes while their entourages waited nearby.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim are both looking for political victories that will help them at home. As Cuomo himself said of Rodman Monday night, "He is our best resource right now for understanding the minds of the two men, especially Kim Jong Un". It also has two presidential suites, so Trump and Kim won't have to duke it out over who gets the big room.

It's not clear what the U.S. side has been able to extract from the North Koreans in terms of their willingness to get rid of their nuclear weapons or allow inspectors into the country to catalogue the scale of their program.

One of the world's most reclusive leaders, Kim visited Singapore's waterfront on Monday, smiling and waving to onlookers, adding to a more affable image that has emerged since his April summit with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.

North Korea once enjoyed two sponsors, China and the Soviet Union.

Early on Tuesday, just a few hours before his meeting with Kim, Trump wrote on Twitter that "meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly". "And I believe in North Korea".

"Working together we will get it taken care of", Trump told reporters before the extended format meeting began. The war was concluded with a truce, not a peace treaty, but a treaty will also have to include China, which was party to the armistice. Trump appeared to be speaking to Kim throughout the 12 seconds of the handshake but Kim did not reply. Later in the day, he met with senior advisers and phoned the leaders of Japan and South Korea.

Participants in a mass rally gather in Kim Il-Sung Square in Pyongyang on September 23, 2017. But many say this is highly unlikely, given how hard it has been for Kim to build his program and given that the weapons are seen as the major guarantee to his holding onto unchecked power.

Any nuclear deal will hinge on North Korea's willingness to allow unfettered outside inspections of the country's warheads and nuclear fuel, much of which is likely kept in a vast complex of underground facilities. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.

"Wide-ranging and profound views on the issue of establishing new DPRK-US relations, the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, the issue of realising the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era, will be exchanged at the DPRK-US summit talks", KCNA reported in English.
