Kim, Trump shake hands before historic summit

Kim, Trump shake hands before historic summit

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" baseball cap, the former NBA Hall-of-Famer said that Tuesday's historic meeting was years in the making.

Kim Jong Un departed Pyongyang Sunday in an Air China Boeing 747 plane for a 10-hour flight to Singapore. I said: Yes I can.

Interested in North Korea? "He thanks you a lot.' And that means a lot", Rodman said.

"I think that country is normally hearing people who are always lying, deceitful and not trustworthy".

The statement added: "Both leaders reaffirmed the excellent relations between Singapore and the USA across the economic, defence, and security spheres". Have a handshake, have a smile, have a glass of iced tea.

"We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

Representatives from the White House Correspondents' Association, The AP, Reuters and Bloomberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rodman told reporters at Changi Airport that he had travelled to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hoped "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

Mr Trump and Mr Lee had a private, one-on-one meeting that lasted about half an hour.

"Dennis Rodman was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him". I said to everybody, the door will open.

Former President Barack Obama was known to occasionally hold impromptu chats with leaders on the sidelines of major global summits, with only their translators at their sides.

The two are due to meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa for their high-stakes summit, the first-ever talks between a US and North Korean leader and the culmination of a head-spinning diplomatic dance.

The White House said later that discussions with North Korea had moved "more quickly than expected" and Trump would leave Singapore on Tuesday night after the summit, rather than Wednesday, as scheduled earlier.

About 5,000 journalists are in Singapore for the occasion, but only a handful of American and North Korean reporters and photographers were permitted at the venue when the two leaders greet each other.

He then appeared to show off for Mr. Kim The Beast, the heavily-armoured Cadillac that is the presidential vehicle. It ain't gotta be war.

"The tweet showed Balakrishnan, Kim and Singapore's education minister Ong Ye Kung smiling broadly at the camera along with the caption: "#jalanjalan #guesswhere?"

"I think people understand that Kim Jong Un is not a dumb man", said Rodman.
