DPRK, US leaders hold historic meeting in Singapore

Trump said Tuesday after meeting Kim that he's feeling "really great".

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

Mr Trump said he had formed a "very special bond" with Kim and that relationship with North Korea would be very different.

Earlier, before a row of alternating United States and North Korean flags, the leaders shared a warm 13-second handshake at a Singapore island resort, creating an indelible image of two unorthodox leaders as they opened a conversation that could determine historic peace or raise the specter of a growing nuclear threat.

Mr Kim is notoriously paranoid about leaving behind person and biological information about himself when he travels overseas. "Both the American as well as the North Koreans are pleased with the arrangements, we're all set to go and things will start happening within the next 24 hours".

But no one can credibly suggest that a durable or verifiable denuclearization of the Korean peninsula can be achieved when North Korea remains a completely closed and totalitarian state.

Trump has said he'll know within minutes whether a deal can be made. I think without Otto, this would not have happened. The safety precaution seems extreme until you remember that both Nikhita Krushev and Mikhail Gorbachev reportedly unintentionally gave the Central Intelligence Agency stool samples during visits to the U.S.

Yesterday, Arjun Kapoor took to Instagram and posted a message for Janhvi encouraging her to work hard. Speaking about the concept, director saab added, "I am a Marwari so it was easier for me to adapt".

Rodman, who first traveled to North Korea in 2013 to meet with Kim, said he received death threats as a result of his outreach.

When Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the worldwide media center for the summit at F1 Pit Building on Sunday, he said it will cost the city state "around 20 million Singaporean dollars" (W16.1 billion, US$1=W1,078) to host the "historic summit".

Though small, Singapore is also wealthy, and able to shoulder the cost of the historic summit, which would appeal to cash-strapped North Korea. According to Reuters, earlier this month Singapore's Defense Minister Ng Eng commented on Singapore paying for numerous expenses of the sit down between Trump and Kim.

The historic summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un could be just the beginning of a series of talks of the denuclearization of the hermit kingdom, one of the nation's top Korea-watchers predicts. According to Trump, it's a "very important" and "pretty comprehensive" document.

Garrett also asked the president about verifying North Korean compliance.

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.
