Trump refused to endorse the group's joint statement, said that Russian Federation should be readmitted, and traded barbs with Trudeau over an intensifying trade conflict.

The pair made brief remarks as they sat together before the world's media as the historic summit got under way, with the United States leader insisting "we will have a terrific relationship I have no doubt".

"We had a really fantastic meeting", Trump said as he strolled out of the Capella Hotel side-by-side with the North Korean leader after their working lunch on Tuesday.

"I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast.it may not".

"Today we had a very historic meeting, overcoming our past history and embarking on a new beginning".

But they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters.

Then at the last moment Mr Kim's sister, Kim Yo-jong, pulled a pen from her pocket which she gave to her brother.

What did emerge from the four hours of discussions between the two leaders on Tuesday was a significant easing of tensions, and with this, an end to the nuclear brinksmanship between two erratic leaders that had shocked the world past year.

Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un to open historic summit with one-on-one powwow
The clearest benchmarks about what the U.S.is seeking from the summit, however, have come from Pompeo rather than Trump. Highly unusually, North Korea's state-run media are already reporting on Mr Kim's trip to Singapore to meet Mr Trump.


"We have right now 32,000 soldiers in South Korea".

Iran, meanwhile, warned Kim not to trust Trump, who, it said, could cancel their denuclearization agreement in a matter of hours.

South Korea's Presidential Blue House said it needed to "to find out the precise meaning or intentions" of Trump's statement, while adding that it was willing to "explore various measures to help the talks move forward more smoothly".

"Kim will be remembered as the leader who ushered in a glorious new era of security and prosperity for his people", he said.

Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump signed a "comprehensive" agreement in Singapore on Tuesday afternoon.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signalled on June 11 that the Trump administration didn't expect an immediate breakthrough at the Trump-Kim meeting, but rather hoped it would create an opening for more extended negotiations. "While we will not discuss specifics, the defensive nature of these combined exercises has been clear for many decades and has not changed".

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland responded to the White House comments by saying that Canada will retaliate to USA tariffs in a measured and reciprocal way and that Canada will always be willing to talk.
