Joint Statement of North Korean leader and US president

Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan welcomes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on his arrival in Singapore

U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island, June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

The world was watching as they smiled for the cameras, then sat down to make brief remarks before going into a almost 40-minute private meeting, with only translators present.

As I recently wrote, while certain sanctions on North Korea are discretionary, a key 2016 law specifically obligates the president to sanction people and entities complicit in human rights abuses in North Korea - not just those involved in weapons proliferation - and the Trump administration legally can't suspend sanctions more broadly unless North Korea implements key human rights reforms.

"I feel really great". Mr Trump was optimistic that the talks would prove productive, saying: "We're going to have a great discussion and I think tremendous success". "And it's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship". "I have no doubt". He's seen ushering Kim into a meeting room.

The diplomatic initiatives leading to the summit started in late April when Kim met South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the leaders of the rival states pledged to end hostility and establish peace on the Korean peninsula.

"The way coming here was not easy", Kim said.

But they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters. He has said he would size up Kim "within the first minute" of their meeting.

"We're going to take care of a very big and very risky problem for the world", Trump said.

"We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit", Kim added, "and I believe that this is good for the peace".

It is the first time a sitting USA president has ever met a North Korean leader.

The role was created after the Vieira left his role with City Football Group and has been appointed as manager of OGC Nice. The ex-Manchester City, Inter Milan and Juventus midfielder was in his third season as head coach of New York City.

There will not be a repeat of "flimsy agreements" made between previous US administrations and North Korea, Secretary Pompeo told reporters in Singapore on Monday.

Karen Leong, managing director of Singapore-headquartered Influence Solutions, said the first 60 seconds showed both leaders seeking to take charge in their encounter.

"I too, got little sleep last night", he said. The North Korean leader's sister and close confidante Kim Yo Jong was among the lunch party.

The stakes are high, although Trump himself sought to lower expectations for a breakthrough nuclear deal, stressing the meeting was the start of a process that would set the stage for further negotiations.

O'Keefe said there may be "measured support" from some Republicans in Congress for what Mr. Trump did in Singapore, but skepticism as well. It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

Korean news outlets are speculating that the tentative talking points between the pair today would be denuclearisation and a possible peace treaty for the Korean Peninsula. But is sticking with United States sanctions against the North " In the meantime, the sanctions will remain in effect".

He also revealed that his economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, who did not among the USA delegation in Singapore, had suffered a heart attack was being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland.

The event-specific symbol features what appears to be a high-five between a hand representing the USA president and one representing the North Korean dictator known for executing his political enemies and exiling large swaths of his nation to prison camps, where they face starvation and torture.

Trump said Saturday that he believes the North Korean leader will "surprise on the upside".

The eccentric former reality TV star is one of the few westerners to have spent time with Kim during multiple visits to Pyongyang and the two struck up an unlikely friendship over their shared love of basketball.
