  • Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

In a joint statement, Kim and Trump agreed to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees for the DPRK, something Trump has confirmed.

Addressing reporters later, Trump said he showed the video on an iPad to about eight members of the North Korean delegation, including Kim, whose father and former leader Kim Jong-il was a long-time movie buff.

Mr Trump announced he would halt "very provocative" and expensive regular military exercises that the United States holds with South Korea. "Will the world embrace this change?" a male narrator can be heard asking the audience.

"People are going to be very impressed and people are going to be very happy and we are going to take care of a very unsafe problem for the world", stated Reuters quoting US President Trump.

No signing had been planned at the beginning of the day, although a large amount of time had been left free after a working lunch schedule for 11:30 a.m. local time (11:30 p.m. ET).

Kim's full delegation has not yet been confirmed, but other prominent North Korean officials seen in photos included foreign minister Ri Yong Ho and Kim Chang Son - the man who has been in Singapore in recent weeks negotiating logistical details for the summit.

He said the United States' relationship with the DPRK and the Korean Peninsula "is going to be a very much different situation than it has in the past".

On nuclear weapons, Mr Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

As the two flags hung side-by-side in the backdrop for the first time ever, both Kim and Trump expressed hope that their summit would be fruitful.

The US has offered North Korea "unique" security guarantees to persuade it to give up its nuclear arsenal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday, on the eve of a historic summit in Singapore.

Trump seemed to hold an optimistic take on Kim's intentions, saying that the dictator "really wants to do something I think terrific for their country". "It's rough, it's rough in a lot of places, by the way, not just there but it's rough and we will continue that and I think ultimately we will agree to something", Trump said.

The US State Department mistakenly made Singapore part of neighbouring Malaysia in a note issued in connection with Tuesday's North Korea-U.S. summit and published on its website, sparking snide comments on social media.
