What the document signed by Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un says

Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting.

"The world will see a major change", the North Korean leader said.

Donald Trump has been criticised for his effusive praise of Kim Jong-un.

Trump and Kim arrived not long ago on Singapore's Sentosa Island, the site of their unprecedented summit.

North Korean state-run Korean Central News Agency reported that Kim enjoyed the "nocturnal bird's-eye view" from the Marina BaySands "observation platform".

After briefly moving away from the media glare, Mr Kim and Mr Trump reappeared, walking together along a balcony and posing for pictures. They then resumed their walk.

Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here. Last week, Trump told reporters that Rodman had not been invited to the summit, but praised him as a "nice guy" and great rebounder.

The two men kicked off their summit with a handshake shortly after 9 a.m. local time Tuesday - 9 p.m. Monday in NY - marking the first face-to-face encounter between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.

The two will huddle alone for roughly 45 minutes before being joined by aides for a larger meeting and working lunch. "Many people in the world will think of this as a scene from a fantasy...science fiction movie", Kim Jong-un was heard telling Donald Trump. "Very, very good. Good relationship". Kim described the meeting as "a good prelude to peace". "We have watched the struggles, and the sacrifices and the progress of the people", he said.

Trudeau 'stabbed us in back' on trade, says Trump chief economic adviser
Trump's stinging critique - while technically accurate - obscures the larger trade relationship between the two countries. British Prime Minister Theresa May , who also attended the G7 summit in Canada, stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade.

Twitter reacts to news of Anthony Bourdain’s death
Paul Gionfrieddo, who heads Mental Health America, became an advocate for early treatment when his son developed a mental illness. Keep firearms and drugs out of the hands of those at risk are common sense, unless you don't know half of suicides were at risk.

The US president said the meetings went "better than anybody could imagine".

The dollar jumped to a 3-week top on Tuesday and Asian shares rose on the news. The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S. - DPRK summit.

About 5,000 journalists are in Singapore for the occasion, but only a handful of American and North Korean reporters and photographers were permitted at the venue when the two leaders greet each other.

The document outlines four points the two leaders agreed upon, including a commitment by Kim to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula and a pledge to "build a lasting and stable peace regime" in the region.

Here's a look back at some of the many comments Trump has shared on Twitter about the North Korean leader.

Balakrishnan, who received Kim, the Chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission, on Sunday at Changi Airport, said the summit comes after 70 years of suspicion, war and diplomatic failures.

North Korea has previously said it was willing to discuss denuclearization, but experts have expressed concern over the varying definitions of the term held by Washington and Pyongyang.

Sanctions on North Korea would remain in place until that happened, Pompeo said on Monday.
