US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un have met at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island for the historic summit.
The first-ever meeting between a US president and a North Korean leader began at 9 a.m. Tuesday local time with a handshake, producing images that were carried live on television across the United States and beyond.
The two leaders are meeting one-on-one, accompanied by translators.
Earlier, the White House said Trump will leave Singapore on Tuesday night, adding that nuclear talks with North Korea are moving “more quickly than expected.”
Trump was scheduled to return to the United States on Wednesday, but will now leave immediately after meeting with North Korean leader Kim on Tuesday, the White House said in a statement on Monday.
