In pictures: Donald Trump meets Kim Jong Un

U.S. President Donald Trump has predicted that talks over ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear arms will be a "tremendous success" after a 45-minute meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

"We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

Thirteen seconds. That's how long the American and North Korean leaders shook hands at the start of their summit on Tuesday.

Mr Trump said he was feeling "really great" and Mr Kim said North Korea and the USA had overcome obstacles to be able to hold talks, saying it "was not easy to get here". "And he thinks he's going to now see what he can get out of the United States". "This may very well be transformative for him as a person and for the office that he occupies", the former New Jersey Superior Court judge added.

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.

It all came about when shocked fans accused Ky of giving Stormi the crop, with one person writing: "she CUT HER BABY OUT". Now, she's taken a similar approach, suddenly deleting all photos of her daughter from social media in recent days.

Trump seemed to hold an optimistic take on Kim's intentions, saying that the dictator "really wants to do something I think terrific for their country".

"Kim Jong Un's agreement to meet Trump means he's having a hard time (from sanctions)".

Answering questions at a press conference at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's resort island of Sentosa, where his meeting with Kim took place, Trump said bringing home US soldiers stationed in South Korea is now not part of the equation.

The North Korean leader then traveled to the St. Regis Hotel - where he will be staying for the duration of the visit - in his armored limousine, which arrived on a separate flight. Since 1953, a ceasefire has made that conflict largely symbolic, with suffering limited to South Koreans killed in provocative strikes, and the North Koreans who suffer in a gulag state or die fleeing it.

With reference to the Korean war Trump said.

He added that in a big tournament like World Cup , it is more about being patient and taking on one game at a time. We want to take this tournament head on. "There will be tough moments and there will be ups and downs".

Trump is heading home a day earlier than expected.

"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", it said.

"It's pretty comprehensive", Trump said about the document, adding that denuclearisation could begin "very quickly". "While we will not discuss specifics, the defensive nature of these combined exercises has been clear for many decades and has not changed".

Rodman, sporting a black t-shirt advertising a cryptocurrency he is involved with, said he was unsure whether he would get to meet with Kim - a man he has previously described as a "friend for life".
