Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have become the first sitting US president and North Korean leader to meet, an unprecedented development after a year of exchanging threats.
The pair shook hands at a luxury hotel in Singapore’s Sentosa island before proceeding to talks.
After a meeting which lasted only 38 minutes, Mr Trump said “a lot of progress” was made, and said he would soon attend a signing ceremony with Mr Kim.
They have been discussing defusing tensions and nuclear disarmament.
However, it is unclear what document the two leaders would be signing.
Analysts are split on what the summit will achieve. Some see it as a propaganda win for Mr Kim, others a potential path to peace.
