Trump reportedly changes departure time from summit with North Korea

"The underlying driver is a transformational process of Kim Jong-un leading North Korea into a new place in the region and the world", said John Delury, a professor of Chinese studies at Yonsei University in Seoul.

A Trump administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USA side was entering the talks with a sense of optimism and an equal dose of skepticism given North Korea's long history of developing nuclear weapons.

The North Korean motorcade, believed to be carrying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, travels along Singapore's Orchard Road, June 10, 2018, ahead of the summit with United States leader Donald Trump.

After Trump's comments, Kim, speaking through a translator, said the meeting showed the United States and North Korea have overcome past obstacles.

The two clasped hands for a long while Tuesday as they posed for photos in front of a row of US and North Korean flags.

A jet carrying Kim landed hours earlier. Her official post is the Workers' Party official responsible for propaganda affairs.

Alluding to the North's concerns that giving up its nuclear weapons could surrender its primary deterrent to forced regime change, Pompeo told reporters that the US was prepared to take action to provide North Korea with "sufficient certainty" that denuclearization "is not something that ends badly for them". She previously worked as an English-language interpreter for a North Korean delegation attending now-stalled six-nation nuclear disarmament talks. "Kim and Trump both seem to want the same thing: a dramatic reversal in the U.S". Some observers speculated Kim would sack Choe but she retained her position.

He is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city Pyongyang.

Since the first US atomic test in the desert of New Mexico on July 16, 1945 eight countries have conducted an estimated 2,056 nuclear test explosions, mostly in the late 1950's and early 1960's - the darkest days of the Cold War, according to data from the Arms Control Association. She also attended Monday's meeting at the Ritz-Carlton hotel.

DPRK stands for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. His appointment to one of the top military jobs was officially confirmed by a state media dispatch on Monday that included him in a list of officials traveling with Kim. The former foreign minister was North Korea's ambassador to Switzerland when Kim Jong Un studied there as a teenager.

Foreign Minister Ri, 61, is a career diplomat who served as the chief North Korean delegate to the six-party nuclear talks.
