Trump immediately grumbled about the media to Kim Jong Un

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement Tuesday that Trump called a "pretty comprehensive document" while promising to give more details at a news conference later in the day.

"The imagery of Kim and Trump holding hands, embracing and declaring an end to the Korean War, is probably something they both individually want", said Laura Rosenberger, a senior fellow and director of the Washington-based Alliance for Securing Democracy.

It follows a day of historic talks at Singapore's Capella Hotel, on Sentosa Island - the first meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader.

Presumably they are high-fiving over the successful but by no means guaranteed or likely negotiation of an extremely delicate denuclearization agreement and the deescalated global threat of the mass loss of life through nuclear annihilation. Moon Jae-in, South Korea's president, said after the meeting had started: "Perhaps the minds of our people are on Singapore". Assuming that nuclear war doesn't break out.

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

"We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, said on Monday that preparatory talks had moved "quite rapidly", with the USA prepared to provide North Korea security assurances that are "unique" from what it has previously offered.

"It's going great", Trump said, with Kim at his side.

President Trump is expected to meet separately with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are set for a historic summit on Tuesday, June 12.

Last week, Mr Trump told reporters that Rodman had not been invited to the summit, but praised him as a "nice guy" and great rebounder.

Singapore is footing the hotel bill for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his contingent, Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said on Monday.

"But I kept my head high, brother, I knew things were going to change ..."

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile programme that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States, insisting he would swiftly achieve what previous US administrations have failed to do.

Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North.

"If diplomacy doesn't move in the right direction, sanctions will increase", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says.

He then appeared to show off for Mr. Kim The Beast, the heavily-armoured Cadillac that is the presidential auto.

"He said Singapore is clean and lovely and every building is stylish as he heard of in the past, adding he is going to learn a lot from the good knowledge and experience of Singapore in various fields in the future", KCNA reported.
