North Korea gets first big dose of Trump summit news

The menu for a working lunch served to U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and their delegations during their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore

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.

The two leaders are expected to meet with translators for 45 minutes, followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with senior staff.

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. "But we overcame all of them, and we are here today".

"We would of course have offered hospitality", Dr Balakrishnan added, when asked if Singapore paid for the North Korean contingent's hotel stay at the St Regis.

He added that Singapore had been following developments on the Korean peninsula for a very long time. Trump appeared to be speaking to Kim throughout the 12 seconds of the handshake but Kim did not reply.

It has been a rollercoaster road to the Trump-Kim summit, echoing the rocky relationship between the two unpredictable leaders, which has swung wildly between insults and cajolery.

"The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the USA, say the haters & losers", Trump wrote. "It's wonderful, it's fantastic, it's awesome, when I said those things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats, and I believed in North Korea, and I couldn't go home, I couldn't even go home, I had to hide out for 30 days, but I kept my head high, and I knew things were going to change..."

As Trump was trying to build a bridge with Kim, he was smashing longtime alliances with Western allies, withdrawing from the G-7 joint communique, escalating a trade fight and launching blistering criticism against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump was presented with a birthday cake by his Singaporean host. "And it's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship I have no doubt".

While advisers insist Trump has been reviewing briefing materials, he insists his gut instincts will matter most when he gets in the room with Kim.

Rodman told reporters at Changi Airport that he had travelled to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hoped "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

Kim also patted Trump, in an attempt to assert control. Libya's Moammar Gadhafi gave up his nuclear weapons program, only to fall from power.

Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get USA troops off the Korean Peninsula and eventually pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea.
