Don’t expect too much from Kim-Trump meeting - Dennis Rodman

In their first moments of meeting each other, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un both sought to project a sense of command as they began a historic summit in Singapore, according to a body language expert.

On the eve of the first encounter between a sitting US president and a leader of North Korea, American officials are maintaining any resulting agreement must lead to an end of North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile threats.

He was greeted by Singapore's foreign minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, who posted a picture on Twitter of him shaking hands with Kim and the message: "Welcomed Chairman Kim Jong Un, who has just arrived in Singapore".

He has also convinced the North Korean people that nuclear weapons are their only savior from an invasion by the U.S. But Kim, who was educated in Switzerland, has also promised to transform North Korea's economy and the lives of its people.

The summit continues to be a highly sensitive topic in North Korea. -North Korea meetings, including translators, photographers and logistical staff, asking how they can be sure they are not actually spies. "We have our hostages, testing, research and all missle [sic] launches have stoped, and these pundits, who have called me wrong from the beginning, have nothing else they can say!"

When the US president meets with leaders of countries with dimmer views of free speech, the American role is typically to push for more access.

It's "going to be tremendously successful", Mr. Trump said in introductory comments broadcast live on television.

The AP reported that the White House kept text reporters for the outlet and other newswires Reuters and Bloomberg, in addition to representatives for radio and foreign press corps, from witnessing the photo-op between Trump and Kim ahead of their meeting.

"For long-time Korea-watchers, seeing the first-ever handshake and meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader is already momentous".

Pompeo in a statement described the meetings as "substantive and detailed" and said Trump was "well-prepared" to meet the North Korean leader. Asked Saturday about his goals, he said: "Well, I think the minimum would be relationship".

Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement ending the Korean War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty.

Despite the comments being largely a repeat of previously expressed concerns by Trudeau, they earned a furious rebuke from both the president and his advisors, who quickly pulled the USA away from endorsing a joint statement released by rest of the G-7 allies.

The two leaders exchanged broad smiles and warm thank-yous when they met at the Istana.
