For the first time on Sunday, North Korean state TV announced details of Kim's schedule in Singapore, describing the summit as "historic" and saying Kim would be exchanging "wide-ranging and profound views" with President Trump. Trump and Kim planned to meet one on one, joined only by translators, for up to two hours before admitting their respective advisers, a USA official said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met with U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday in Singapore.

United States partners in the region, particularly South Korea and Japan, are concerned that Trump's eagerness to struck a diplomatic win might lead to him to give away too much too early, perhaps undermining U.S. security guarantees to its allies as a way of resassuring Kim of the safety of his regime.

Reporters asked Mr. Kim several times whether he would give up his nuclear weapons.

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

Both sides were finalizing preparations for the unprecedented summit, which was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake between Trump and Kim, an image sure to be devoured around the world.

Woman charged after allegedly putting children in pet kennels
A Tennessee woman was arrested over the weekend for transporting two children around in dog kennels inside her vehicle. She has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after the children, aged seven and eight, were released.


Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong Chol, the former spy chief and one of North Korea's chief negotiators, as well as Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, former Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son Hui, Minister of the People's Armed Forces No Kwang Chol, Workers' Party of Korea Director Han Kwang Sang, and Party First Deputy Director Kim Yo Jong.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, said on Monday that preparatory talks had moved "quite rapidly", with the US prepared to provide North Korea security assurances that are "unique" from what it has previously offered. Mr. Trump "gets along so well with ruthless, brutal dictators, but you have this acrimonious, hostile relationship with the Canadian Prime Minister?"

One top Trump adviser cast the move as a show of strength before the Kim meeting.

A photograph showing Trump sitting with his arms folded as German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks was seen as defining the acrimonious nature of those talks. The North Korean approach, he added was: "Let's be friends (ie, change the relationship), and then we will change our behaviour". He told reporters he thinks he will know nearly immediately whether a deal can be made, saying: "I will know, just my touch, my feel".

The company also sponsored one of Rodman's previous trips to the country, where he alleged gifted Kim a copy of Trump's book The Art of the Deal.

In the past few weeks, Trump has repeatedly said that he would simply walk out of the meeting with Chairman Kim, if he sensed that North Korea was not serious in denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
