[Newsmaker] Who joined Trump, Kim at summit table?

Cleaned up, locked down and ready to make history. And he must resist the kind of impetuousness he displayed on his way to Singapore when he abruptly withdrew US support for a joint communique negotiated with other nations at the Group of Seven meeting in Canada. "We will be tremendously successful", Trump said before their private session.

They came with scores of aides, bodyguards and diplomats in tow: Donald Trump from Washington, Kim Jong Un from Pyongyang.

"We may be able to recoup a little bit of that but I think it is a cost that we're willing to pay and it's our contribution to an worldwide endeavour, which is in our profound interests", said Lee during a press conference held at the summit's global Media Centre. I still kept going back, kept going back ...

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

Rodman has traveled to North Korea in the past and seems to have struck up an unlikely friendship with the North Korean leader. But his ruthlessness at home and a human rights record that United Nations investigators have described as "harrowing" have left many unconvinced about his sincerity.

0031 Kim's motorcade has arrived.

The summit has officially begun, with Trump and Kim shaking hands and posing for photographs. "That is an extraordinary offer of flexibility, considering (North Korea) poses a direct security threat to the United States", according to Saeed.

"When I woke up this morning, I saw the news in the newspaper that our respected marshal went to Singapore for the North Korea-US summit", said Han Il-gwang, a Pyongyang resident, displaying typical discretion.

If a deal on nuclear weapons is made, verification will also a big challenge.

DPRK refers to the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Centre", Trump said on Twitter.

"Wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours?" He also said that he understands English when he talks about basketball, a sport North Koreans allegedly enjoy. "I could see Trump giving up a lot for very little in return".

Dennis Rodman looking to cash in on Trump-Kim summit
Donald Trump is seeking to get North Korea to agree to denuclearize. "We'll see what happens". Trump expressed unbridled optimism - and confidence - about his June 12 tete-a-tete with Mr.

"It's interesting because we believe Kim speaks English - he was educated in Switzerland and speaks German, but Trump seems to be the only one talking during their bit of chit chat", Professor Hajek told Yahoo7.

With a US president facing the prospect of his party being trounced in midterm elections and a North Korean leader eager for a coming out party on the global stage, what can Japan expect from Tuesday's historic summit?

It was a striking about-face from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged USA dotard". Mr. Trump said last week that Rodman had not been invited to the summit.

The cancelled meeting was ultimately resurrected, and now the pair are less than a day away from holding historic talks. A large limousine with a North Korean flag was surrounded by other black vehicles with tinted window as it sped through the city's streets. But they share a similar hands-on approach, with decisions based on their own personal views -sometimes even their whims.

He said on Thursday that he didn't think he had to prepare very much for the summit and that "it's about attitude".

Sanctions on North Korea would remain in place until that had happened, Pompeo said.

Paul Haenle worries there's a preparation gap that has left Trump - and the USA - at a disadvantage. That's in part because of South Korea's diplomatic outreach to the North, which was highlighted by two summits this spring between the rivals' leaders. He's now the director of the Carnegie Tsinghua Center, a thinktank in Beijing.

Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade.

"South Korea, China and Russian Federation may decide to lift their own sanctions but the regime would still be left in a tough situation, thanks to United Nations sanctions and independent sanctions by the USA and Japan", Kotani said.

Reuters could not confirm if leader Kim was staying in the Presidential Suite.
