"We're signing a very important document, pretty comprehensive document, and we've had a really great time together, a great relationship... More will be discussed at a press conference soon," The New Straits Times quoted Trump as saying. "We have developed a special bond," he said. "The meeting was far better than anybody ever predicted."

Kim said in response: "The world will see a major change." 

Trump and Kim met at the resort island of Sentosa along with their respective translators. The two leaders shared a historic handshake as they met for the first time. The two clasped hands for a long while as they posed for photos in front of a row of US and North Korean flags.  

Trump and Kim, who have traded a volley of insults and even threatened each other of nuclear war, are meeting at Capella Hotel, a five-star resort on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. The meeting could go one, two, or even three days, Trump has told reporters in Washington.

Trump’s goal is “ridding the United States and the world of threats posed by North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programmes", secretary of state Mike Pompeo told reporters on June 7, according to Bloomberg. Kim will likely be eager to strike an agreement that eases sanctions and brings an end to the Korean War while allowing him to keep at least part of his nuclear arsenal. 

But experts are skeptical. Many think the meeting, at best, will likely provide a roadmap for future talks, each round of which will require difficult and complex negotiations. Most important, few believe Kim is actually willing to give up the nuclear weapons that cement his grip on power.
