North Korea summit: Trump, Kim Jong Un meeting in Singapore

Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

As U.S. President Trump preps for a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Twitter doesn't want you to forget to tweet about it under the right hashtag. The handshake lasted about 12 seconds. He also said Kim agreed to destroy a "major" missile testing site, but did not offer specific details.

Kim, dressed in a dark suit, and Trump, sporting a red tie, talked in a corner of the hotel corridor for a few minutes before they walked along the passage into the meeting room and sat down in front of journalists.

"The war games are very expensive; we paid for a big majority of them, we fly in bombers from Guam", Trump said.

He talked about the pair achieving "tremendous success together" and predicts that "it will be successful". Mr Kim, speaking via a translator, said: "It wasn't easy to come to this point".

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new US-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

Critics of the summit leapt at the leaders' handshake and the moonlight stroll Kim took Monday night along the glittering Singapore waterfront, saying it was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimize Kim on the world stage as an equal of the USA president.

On the DPRK side, Kim Yong Chol and Ri Su Yong, two vice chairmen of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Central Committee, and Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho were present.

The newspaper also reported Kim Jong Un as saying that he can work with countries even though they are enemies if they respect North Korean autonomy.

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.

He said the Canadian leader must not have realised that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.

Mr Trump's delegation at the luncheon included US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

But experts have expressed doubt that Pyongyang would abandon its hard-won nuclear gains after demonstrating rapid progress in their program with a series of missile and nuclear tests past year.

He also revealed that his economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, who did not among the USA delegation in Singapore, had suffered a heart attack was being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland. Kudlow's wife, Judy, told the Washington Post that "he's doing fine".

Pompeo spoke as top officials from the two countries continued negotiations in Singapore ahead of the meeting between Trump and Kim.

If you think that the meeting seems stranger than fiction don't worry so did the North Korean leader.

"I believed in North Korea", Rodman said.

"It is awesome, it is wonderful. when I went back home, I got so many death threats".
