President Trump and Kim Jong Un Agree to Work Toward Denuclearization

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un went on a surprise tour of downtown Singapore on Monday night, just hours before he was due to take part in a landmark meeting with US President Donald Trump.

Earlier the two leaders shook hands and posed for photographs, before moving inside the hotel to talk to reporters. They greet each other warmly before the cameras and then head to a separate room.

President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un meet on the possibility of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

"I feel really great". "It's my honor, and we're going to have a terrific relationship". "I have no doubt".

The meeting Rodman was referring to came back in March 2013. The two countries remain technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice instead of a peace treaty.

Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here. Trump then directed Kim to walk down a hallway, where they briefly spoke. He has said he would size up Kim "within the first minute" of their meeting. White House spokesman Raj Shah said Trump's schedule change was not in response to Kim but instead due to the quick-moving negotiations between the two sides.

"When Trump touches Kim's arm during the handshake, that's a sign of empathy".

However, it now appears that the U.S.is confident tings are going smoothly. "Probably, all the attention of our people is on Singapore".

The Rodong Sinmun, the mouthpiece of the Workers' Party, also featured his departure in a full-color two-page spread, declaring on the front page that he was leaving in a Chinese plane for a "historic summit" with the United States president. On a larger level, the astronomical cost of the nuclear weapons program contributes to the massive poverty in North Korea, among the world's poorest countries.

Responding to a reporter's question on the subject, the secretary of state added that the U.S.is "prepared to take actions that will provide [North Korea] sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization isn't something that ends badly for them".

Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North.

The U.S. will move to tighten the punishing measures if diplomacy fails, he added. 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. In 2015 the presidents of China and Taiwan met face-to-face for the first time in Singapore, and earlier this month, it hosted U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and his counterparts from the Indo-Pacific region for the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual gathering of security officials and academics.

As Trump was trying to build a bridge with Kim, he was smashing longtime alliances with Western allies with his abrasive performance at the G-7. "Trump seemed to be very aware of this, that he needed to up the stakes and be seen that he is the leader".

Although the breakthrough made at the summit marks just the start of a diplomatic process, it could bring lasting change to the security landscape of Northeast Asia.
