According to a menu card published from the White House Kim and Trump had a plethora of western Korean Chinese and Malay dishes to choose from at the swanky Capella hotel in Singapore Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

"That's why there's no certainty that both sides will immediately rush to build on the Singapore success".

According to Reuters, before signing what Trump described as a "comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting "and made a decision to leave the past behind".

Before they signed the document, Trump and Kim had been involved in one-on-one talks, which came after months of planning.

All he managed to catch was a glimpse of Donald Trump at about 8 am today when he left the hotel for the summit in Capella hotel on Sentosa island.

"We're both going to do something, and we've developed a very special bond". We fly in bombers from Guam... to practice and drop bombs all over the place and then go back to Guam.

Smith lamented that the agreement signed by Trump and Kim at the historic summit did not contain language guaranteeing "complete, verifiable, irreversible" denuclearization by North Korea.

"I don't think I can say I believe it now, but I see the positive gesture...."

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman speaks to the press as he arrives at Changi International airport ahead of US-North Korea summit in Singapore on June 11, 2018.

Diamond dealer wanted for huge bank scam 'seeking asylum in UK'
A fugitive Indian billionaire wanted in connection with a massive bank fraud is seeking asylum in Britain, according to a report . The Indian government in February this year had said that it had revoked the passports of Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi.

Trump did most of the talking, and Kim appeared to listen attentively, turning to him three times during their walk toward their meeting room.

And let's not forget to thank Dennis Rodman, who, five years ago, tried to tell President Obama that Kim Jong-un was open to talking. He added he would likely call Chinese president Xi Jinping "very shortly" about the summit.

They began their summit in a carefully choreographed encounter at 9 a.m.

Despite the unprecedented rapprochement between the two countries, the North Koreans have maintained a tight security presence around their leader.

They reached Singapore on Sunday followed by their individual meetings with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Asked by reporters how he felt after the historic meeting at a luxury resort in SIngapore early on June 12, Trump responded: "I feel really great".

It also marks a diplomatic landmark between the two countries with a long history of tense ties.

Trump had also wanted a commitment to ending the Korean War, which was stopped by an armistice, not a peace treaty, leaving the Korean Peninsula still technically in a state of war. This is it? This is, well, pathetic given that the USA president was personally involved.
