Trump and Kim sign unspecified documents

Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting.

The Republican leader said: "People are going to be very impressed and people are going to be very happy and we are going to take care of a very unsafe problem for the world".

Rodman also goes back years with Trump and appeared on his "Celebrity Apprentice" show.

"We're going to have a great discussion and I think tremendous success".

The US president left the Shangri-La Hotel, where he is staying, at about 11.45am in a motorcade of more than 30 vehicles.

Pyongyang has demanded the end of what it calls a "hostile policy" towards it, but in public has only pledged to pursue the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula - a euphemism open to wide differences of interpretation.

But the resignation by Phillip Lee underlined the deep rifts in the party over Brexit that makes such votes anything but easy. The Government is against the plan, believing it sends the wrong message to Brussels regarding the UK's negotiating goals.

The optimistic summit was a remarkable change in dynamics 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 USA dotard".

The world was watching as they smiled for the cameras, then sat down to make brief remarks before going into a almost 40-minute private meeting, with only translators present. They met for roughly 40 minutes accompanied only by interpreters, an unusual attempt to establish personal chemistry between men who, only months before, traded barbed insults and threats of mass destruction.

Trump became the first sitting American president to meet a North Korean leader Tuesday when the two shook hands firmly before sitting down to talk at a resort hotel in Singapore. It will be tremendously successful. "And it's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship".

Mr. Kim replied, in translated comments captured by cameras: "The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward".

Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here. I thought I was going to play basketball and meet the people and that was it.

"The worry we have is the president will be so eager for quote "an agreement" that it won't protect the security, first and foremost, of the United States", Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told NPR on Tuesday.

"I've been to North Korea six times". He gave no answer.

According to the White House, the President is set to have a bilateral meeting with the supreme leader and a working lunch soon after before holding a final press conference later this evening.

Meeting with staged ceremony on a Singapore island, Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed just unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating USA and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch.

Neither have given much away - maybe because Kim Jong-un's voice is rarely heard in the West.
