The agreement signed by Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in full

Trump predicts ‘terrific relationship’ with Kim Jong Un as historic summit begins

Inside, they sat alongside each other against a backdrop of North Korean and US flags, with Kim beaming broadly as the USA president gave him a thumbs up.

Former US basketball star Dennis Rodman flew into Singapore late Monday ahead of a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, playing down expectations of an immediate breakthrough at the historic meeting.

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S. -DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

The document said nothing about how the two countries would reach the goals, and "complete denuclearization" wasn't defined.

"It's never been done before", Trump said of a U.S.

He declined to comment on whether he planned to meet Trump or Kim.

Still, during the preliminary meeting, both Trump and Kim appeared diplomatic but warm, smiling and clasping hands before making a joint statement to the press. It will be the first ever meeting between a sitting US President and North Korean leader. Trump briefly called off the summit a few weeks ago before agreeing again to the meeting.

Balakrishnan, Singapore's Foreign Minister, made important visits to Washington, Pyongyang and Beijing in recent days to ensure that there would be no last-minute spoilers for the historic meeting hosted by the city-state.

Rodman said he hopes everyone reads it before the summit and reiterated that "we've got the greatest negotiator of all time" to "show the world how it's done".

Rodman spoke from Singapore , where he had traveled to play his part in the summit between the two nations. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about internal deliberations and insisted on anonymity.

Why people think Justin Trudeau wore fake eyebrows
President Trump went on with his advisers and attacked Prime minister Justin Trudeau by using words like "betrayal" and "stab". "Canadians are polite and reasonable but we will not be pushed around", Trudeau told reporters on Saturday.

US Attorney General curbs asylum for immigrant victims of violence
Sessions told immigration judges in Washington that illegal immigrants are misusing the asylum system. It was not immediately clear how many cases the decision could affect.

Trump predicted earlier Monday that the summit could "work out very nicely" as officials from both countries sought to narrow differences on how to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.

Pyongyang has said it is willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with reliable security assurances and other benefits.

Tuesday's meeting, convened at a luxury hotel on the island of Sentosa, comes just three months after Trump accepted North Korea's invitation for talks on the spot.

Of this, half is on security, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Sunday.

The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions, which began years before Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign, as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire USA mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the US and the North. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything".

While advisers insist Trump has been reviewing briefing materials, he says his gut instincts will matter most when he gets in the room with Kim.

Instead, he told reporters last weekend he would rely on "my touch, my feel" to assess the young and mercurial leader.
