Pompeo tries to reassure North Korea about denuclearization

Rodman, who is one of a handful of Westerners to have visited reclusive North Korea and met Kim Jong Un, arrived in Singapore on Monday, the eve of the summit, declaring he was "excited to be part of it".

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds.

"President Trump recognizes Chairman Kim's desire for security, and is prepared to ensure that a North Korea free of weapons of mass destruction is also a secure North Korea", he added.

Yet Trump and Kim have yet to agree even on how to define denuclearization of the Korean peninsula - the stated goal of the meeting.

"T$3 he whole territory of the U.S.is within range of our nuclear strike", Kim said in his speech. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) mentioned that the summit is being held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world".

More officials took part in the working lunch, with the additional participants on the US side, including White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, National Security Council Senior Director for Asia Matt Pottinger, and senior diplomat Sung Kim, who has led substantive talks with Pyongyang into the summit.

The US side however reportedly believes that an immediate tangible outcome is unlikely following the meet.

Despite the initial high stakes of a meeting meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know meeting.

North Korea sanctions to 'remain in effect’
Bolton in turn called the description "the highest accolade I received during all my service in the Bush years". Overall, the post-summit statements from Trump and Kim are "bold" yet lack detail, reports the Times .

He flew into Singapore late Monday to be present for the historic first summit between the two leaders. "But we overcame all of them, and we are here today", Kim said during the meeting through an interpreter. "I think both sides will be impressed with the result".

But while Trump, and Kim, regularly stray off diplomatic scripts, a larger risk may be that there may be no full transcript, public or secret, of what the two leaders discussed.

The new year began with another televised address from Kim, this time involving threats of a "nuclear button" on the North Korean leader's desk.

The leaders were later joined by their senior advisers for bilateral talks, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton sitting to the left of Trump.

Trump said that he and Kim would be meeting again, though he offered no timeline for when that might happen.

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018. "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction- and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so- those measures will increase".

Setting out the United States position before the summit, Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North.
