Trump-Kim summit

Singapore: With cameras of the world’s press trained on them, Trump and Kim displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie. Both men had looked serious as they got out of their limousines for the summit at the Capella hotel in Singapore.

After some initial exchanges lasting around 40 minutes, Trump and Kim emerged, walking side-by-side through the colonnaded hotel before re-entering the meeting room, where they were joined by their most senior officials.

Aaccording to pool reporters, as they walked away together after shaking hands, Kim said to Trump: "Many people in the world will think of this as a form of fantasy from a science fiction movie."

Kim is currently meeting with President Trump and his top advisers. At the start of the talks, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un acknowledged it wouldn't be a smooth road ahead.

"Of course there are challenges ahead, but I am ("ready" or "willing", unclear) to do this," Kim told the top US leadership.
