'A changed era': How North Korea is reporting the summit

US President Donald Trump arrives at Paya Lebar Air Base for a summit with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, June 10, 2018, in Singapore. A United States official says Monday that the leaders will meet for up to two hours before an expanded bilateral meeting with their respective advisers.

The White House also announced Trump would be leaving Singapore earlier than previously expected and holding a media availability ahead of his departure.

Trump's one-on-one meeting with Kim kicks off the first ever summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

In the hours before the summit began Trump expressed optimism about prospects for the first-ever meeting of sitting U.S. and North Korean leaders, while U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo injected a note of caution whether Kim would prove to be honest about his willingness to denuclearise.

Following an on-camera greeting, the pair will begin the summit with a one-on-one meeting with only their translators, according to a senior Trump administration official.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has arrived at Singapore's Sentosa Island, where he'll be meeting shortly face-to-face with President Donald Trump.

The meeting marks the first ever meeting between a sitting North Korean leader and a US president.

With cameras of the world's press trained on them, Trump and Kim built an initial atmosphere of friendship.

Trump was presented with a birthday cake by his Singaporean host.

"In light of how many flimsy agreements the United States has made in previous years, this president will ensure that no potential agreement will fail to ultimately address the North Korean threat", Pompeo told reporters in Singapore on Monday.

The North Korean autocrat's every move will be followed by 3,000 journalists who have converged on Singapore, and by gawkers around the world, up until he shakes hands with Trump on Tuesday.

Rodman appeared in Trump's Celebrity Apprentice reality TV show, only to be booted off because he misspelled Melania Trump's name.

He explained that he gave the North Korean official Trump's book, "Art of the Deal", while he was in North Korea.

What was initially portrayed by the White House as a summit meant to completely rid the North of its nuclear weapons is now being cast as a chance to "start a dialogue" and for Trump the dealmaker to look into the eyes and take the measure of his nuclear-armed antagonist. The war was concluded with a truce, not a peace treaty, but a treaty will also have to include China, which was party to the armistice.

Commenting for the first time on the summit, North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said the two sides would exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" to re-set relations.

It's unclear what Trump and Kim might decide Tuesday.

Since then, he's launched almost 100 missiles and conducted North Korea's most powerful nuclear tests.

The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

The rare public appearance of Kim, waving and smiling to onlookers, adds to the more affable image of the young leader that has emerged since his summit in April with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.

It's so far unclear whether the USA and North Korea will release some kind of joint statement or agreement following the sit-down.
