Kim: North Korean Leader Says Summit Like Being in a Sci-Fi Movie

Kim: North Korean Leader Says Summit Like Being in a Sci-Fi Movie

After their initial greeting, Trump and Kim walked inside, sat down and spoke briefly to reporters.

"North Korea's not going to change the way they do business unless they believe that the military option's on the table", Graham, R-S.C., said on "Sunday Morning Futures".

The leaders will meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa and talks are expected to centre on ending the North's nuclear weapons and missile programmes in return for diplomatic and economic incentives.

Previous summits, North Korean TV has not said anything about them to North Koreans until after the summit was over.

Mr Kim is notoriously paranoid about leaving behind person and biological information about himself when he travels overseas. And that suggests, perhaps, a confidence level on the North Koreans that this summit might go well.

President Trump meets Kim Jong Un
Asia stocks shook off initial modest losses and edged up on Monday ahead of an historic U.S. But Mr Trump warned "he was prepared to walk away" if the summit did not go well.

"Wide-ranging and profound views on the issue of establishing new DPRK-US relations, the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, the issue of actualizing the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern" will be discussed, state-run KCNA reported early Monday. "Just means we get home a little later in the evening", Trump said.

Kim was heard telling Trump through a translator: "I think the entire world is watching this moment".

He also revealed that his economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, who did not among the USA delegation in Singapore, had suffered a heart attack was being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland.

The President is well-prepared for tomorrow's engagement with Chairman Kim.

The president said North Korea has a sizable nuclear arsenal and that Kim knows its details and capabilities very well.

New Command & Conquer announced... but only for mobile
During EA's press conference, the company announced the first new Command & Conquer game since 2012 - Command & Conquer: Rivals . That wait, it seems, isn't quite over but there is confirmation that EA is still thinking about the property.

When asked if there was a discussion of pulling the roughly 28,000 United States troops out of South Korea, Trump said the topic never came up.

When Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the global media center for the summit at F1 Pit Building on Sunday, he said it will cost the city state "around 20 million Singaporean dollars" (W16.1 billion, US$1=W1,078) to host the "historic summit".

He has said he would size up Kim "within the first minute" of their meeting.

Mr Trump said the pair had made "a lot of progress".

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018. "It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more". "But they'll come off - as you know and as I have said, the sanctions right now remain but as a certain point I actually look forward to taking them off and they'll come off when we know we're down the road where it's not going to happen, nothing is going to happen".

George and Charlotte goof off at William's polo match
The incident brought back memories of the 2016 Trooping the Colour when William, 36, was scolded by Queen Elizabeth to stand up. Royal fans rarely witness the Cambridge family in this kind of setting - more regularly seeing them at official royal events.

The president also has said it will be the start of the process, suggesting that the meeting will set the stage for more detailed negotiations in coming months.
