Singapore summit: The key moments

Critics of the summit leapt at the leaders' handshake and the moonlight stroll Kim took Monday night along the glittering Singapore waterfront, saying it was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimize Kim on the world stage.

China, historically North Korea's closest partner, has also sought a "freeze for freeze" agreement in which the exercises would be suspended in exchange for North Korea's stopping its weapons development.

North Korea said Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump will discuss "denuclearization" and "durable peace" on the Korean peninsula during their upcoming summit.

Before signing what Mr Trump described as a "comprehensive" document, Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting "and chose to leave the past behind".

Many others watched live footage of the summit on their phones.

Commenting on his upcoming meeting with the North Korean dictator, President Trump said he will know very quickly whether the summit is going to be fruitful.

Kim's top officials sat with him while Trump had his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

The letter commits to recovering the remains of fallen soldiers and prisoners of war and "the immediate repatriation of those already identified".

However, many South Koreans rushed to express their awe at Tuesday's events. Trump leaned forward with his hands clasped.

Both men walked to Trump's limousine and looked in at the rear seat, with Trump apparently showing Kim something inside.

"I got so many death threats", he said.
Instead, the meet will set the ball rolling for a long dialogue between the two nuclear powers.

"I remember hovering around the delivery room the day my daughter was born".

Via a translator, Kim said "today, we had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind".

Trump is heading home a day earlier than expected. Global sanctions made it hard for the North Korean leader to cover his overseas accommodation.

Mr Trump said the pair had made "a lot of progress".

Sue Mi Terry, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst, told MSNBC, "Kim Jong-un is prepared". He thinks he's coming into this meeting from a position of strength because he has reached certain capability in his nuclear missile program.

When pressed for a breakdown on the summit expenses, he said, "I think if you calculate the price of everything in this world, you will miss out the really important things".

Once again, the flags stood side by side.

The announcement has provoked displeasure in Seoul, but it is music to the ear of the North Korean regime, which has managed to secure concessions from the USA without necessarily agreeing to a clear denuclearisation plan.
