Trump Will Leave Summit With North Korea Early

Trump Will Leave Summit With North Korea Early

In a post on Twitter during his flight, Trump reiterated his optimism that the summit with the North Korean leader will be a success.

Kim's massive security team covered him from all sides, making him barely visible to reporters who were snapping pictures of the "procession".

"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the U.S. and his safe return", the KCNA said.

The media reports on the Trump-Kim talks on Monday follow months of only the scantest of coverage, though Kim's summits with South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, and China's president, Xi Jinping, received large-scale coverage soon after they had ended.

Even Mr Kim's two recent trips overseas to neighbouring China were not reported to the North Korean population until he had returned home. The article also stresses the need for confidentiality - meaning Trump will have to resist tweeting the minutes of the meeting.

On the summit's eve, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo drew a firm line, saying the U.S. plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.

The schedule also includes time for Trump to deliver a press conference before his scheduled departure at 8 p.m. local time Tuesday (8 a.m. ET Tuesday).

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong ahead of a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, June 11, 2018, in Singapore. After greeting each other, the two leaders planned to sit for a one on one meeting that a US official said could last up to two hours, with only translators joining them.

Cheering crowds greeted Kim during his stroll, and cameras from North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency documented his every move.

Although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail, Trump sounded a positive note in a lunch meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee.

"Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks, but it is our fervent hope that chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change", he said.

Lee Hye-ji, a 31-year-old housewife, was "hopeful" about the Trump-Kim meeting, adding she was less interested in denuclearisation than a declaration that the Korean War was over, 65 years after hostilities stopped with a ceasefire rather than a peace treaty.

"I can only say this", Pompeo said.

The president who once described Kim as "Little Rocket Man" and threatened to destroy his country if it did not give up nukes, has not said what might happen if the summit goes the wrong way. "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again", Trump said.
