Full Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un signed statement from Singapore summit

Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan welcomes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on his arrival in Singapore

During a brief walk, Trump guided Kim over to his custom Cadillac limousine and gave him a peek inside.

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

"I feel really great".

Kim was heard telling Trump through an interpreter: "I think the entire world is watching this moment". We had a terrific day and we learned a lot about each other and our countries'. "I have no doubt".

Kim referred to the decades of hostility that preceded the landmark meeting.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim sit down with their respective delegations for the US-North Korea summit, following a private discussion that kicked off the historic meeting between the leaders. "It was not easy to get here", he said through his translator. "There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

When asked if there was a discussion of pulling the roughly 28,000 U.S. troops out of South Korea, Trump said the topic never came up. He has said he would size up Kim "within the first minute" of their meeting.

He said he expected the Trump-Kim summit to "go fairly well" but added, "people should not expect too much for the first time".

Both Trump and Kim expressed gratitude toward each other for the meetings, and Trump said he would "absolutely" invite Kim to visit the White House.

There will not be a repeat of "flimsy agreements" made between previous USA administrations and North Korea, Secretary Pompeo told reporters in Singapore on Monday.

The 41-year-old had been linked with replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium following his former manager's departure. Enjoying dominance on a domestic and a European stage, the pair has won over 24 trophies together.

Shanmugam said that four people have been turned away at Singapore's immigration checkpoints in the lead-up to the summit. "I join all the people in ardently aspiring for the success of the summit to bring complete denuclearization and peace to us". He traveled to China twice and to the South Korean side of the truce village of Panmunjom.

The circus-like atmosphere might be amusing if the stakes weren't so high.

A complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization "is the only outcome that the United States will accept", Pompeo told reporters on Monday evening in Singapore.

But he added that, "in the end, that doesn't matter". It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

While President Trump has spoken positively about the upcoming summit, he has been vague on details of what they might be able to actually achieve.

In any case, the Trump administration has no choice.

He called journalists by the wrong names, bantered about previous front pages that had been written about him, and artfully skirted around questions he did not want to answer (mainly the issue of human rights abuse in North Korea).

"If diplomacy doesn't move in the right direction, sanctions will increase", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says. 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.

That is, experts suggest Pyongyang may only agree to give up its nukes in exchange for the USA terminating its military presence in South Korea and ending its regional nuclear umbrella, a security arrangement in which Washington promises in-kind retaliation on behalf of close allies if they are attacked with nuclear weapons.

Kim, believed to be 34, is the third leader in a family dynasty that has ruled the communist state since it was founded in 1948.
