Prawns and Haagen-Dazs on the menu as Trump-Kim meet

Donald Trump Kim Jong Un

But the DPRK responded calmly by saying that it was ready to sit down with the USA side at any time for talks to solve the problems existing between them.

Trump has offered to help rebuild North Korea's impoverished economy if he will agree to the United States' demands.

Trump said he "absolutely" would be willing to invite Kim - whose regime has been criticised for widespread human rights abuses - to the White House.

Trump and Kim met for about 40 minutes Tuesday one-on-one, joined only by interpreters. I think that's yet to be decided, but what we're seeing on screen is nothing but people saying, 'Look, let's cheer.

"Two men, two leaders, one destiny".

Kim and Trump signed the "historic" document after their Singapore meeting. While an ICBM-armed nuclearized North Korea is indeed a major cause for concern for the world, Twitter and Instagram appeared to have their thoughts elsewhere, with the two leaders becoming the subject of quite a few memes.

"We are going to take care of the very big and very unsafe problem for the world", Trump said at the signing ceremony, adding that his meeting with Kim was "far better than anybody even predicted".

Trump said that Kim and his aides "loved" watching it, and hoped they would make it a reality. Trump clashed with several of his fellow world leaders over the weekend, and multiple worldwide officials condemned him for refusing to endorse the communique at the end of the conference.

In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in watched live on television, telling his ministers, he "could hardly sleep last night".

The video was also shown to a wider audience at the start of Tuesday's press conference before making the rounds on social media.

The Kim-Trump summit, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore, was put back on track following multi-track talks between DPRK and USA officials in NY and Singapore's efforts to salvage the highly-anticipated meeting.

As one Twitter user asked: "Wait, was Haagen-Dazs a sponsor of the Trump-Kim lunch?"
