President Trump meets Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong Un

U.S. President Donald Trump answers questions during a press conference following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

After a handshake, 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.

After meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Monday, Trump announced the United States will be "stopping the war games" on the Korean peninsula, describing them as expensive and "provocative".

In their first moments of meeting each other, US 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.

"Yesterday's photo op doesn't change the fact that a nuclear-armed North Korea is a threat to the security of the United States, our allies, and the world".

The two Korean states then went to war in the 1950s and never actually signed a peace treaty, making that the longest ceasefire in history. They walked in from opposite sides of the building and met in front of a row of interspersed American and North Korean flags.

In contrast, Trump was mostly smiles with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, saying talks were "top of the line". Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe travelled to Washington last week and urged Trump to raise that issue in his summit with Kim.

The historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un resulted in an understanding that Pyongyang would work toward denuclearization.

The historic first meeting between a sitting US president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room.

US and North Korea commit to establishing new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity. In fact, North Koreans looked more like the big losers from the meeting: by leaving human rights out of the final statement, the Trump administration effectively told North Korea that human rights are not a U.S. priority. "We're going now for a signing", Trump told journalists, without giving details on what would be signed. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean officials would hold follow-up negotiations "at the earliest possible date", the statement said. "I think he's going to start now", he said.
