Share

This will be the first summit of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting US president.

The formal document signing followed a series of meetings at a luxury Singapore resort.

"People call it a historic summit but.it is important to understand that this summit was available to any U.S. president who wanted to do it and the point is no USA president wanted to do this, and for good reasons", said Christopher Hill, a former lead United States nuclear negotiator with North Korea.

Trump and Kim landed in a city teeming with media and onlookers of all stripes, from foreign policy analysts like Kelly and Enos to former basketball star Dennis Rodman, who claims to be a friend of the two leaders. Responding to questions, he said "absolutely" he would invite Kim to the White House.

That part of the summit could be crucial.

Trump, who is offering to reduce economic sanctions on North Korea in exchange for denuclearization, also seemed to warn Kim that the summit is a "one-time opportunity" that should not be wasted. Kim arrived at Singapore's commercial airport on an Air China Boeing 747 just more than five hours earlier.

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying that it may take more than one meeting. But he added "our hostages" are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped. Some analysts said a Kim commitment to specific negotiations on denuclearization could well be enough for Tuesday's summit to be a success.

Trump is expected to meet Lee on Monday.
