Trump was flanked by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton, as previously announced by the White House.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said Mr Trump had also accepted President Halimah Yacob's invitation to make a state visit to Singapore in November to attend the 6th Asean-US Summit and 13th East Asia Summit.

Mr Trump and Mr Lee had a private, one-on-one meeting that lasted about half an hour.

In the hours before the summit began, Trump expressed optimism about prospects for the first-ever meeting of sitting USA and North Korean leaders, while Pompeo injected a note of caution whether Kim would prove to be honest about his willingness to denuclearise.

Kim, speaking through an interpreter, said: "There were fetters and wrong practices that at times covered our eyes and ears, but we overcame everything to come this far". North Korea has said it's willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with a reliable security assurance and other benefits.

On Tuesday, famous "North Korean envoy" Dennis Rodman broke down in tears live on CNN, saying that the controversial talks between him and Kim Jong-un and between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un were the right thing to do.

Rodman has traveled to North Korea in the past and seems to have struck up an unlikely friendship with the North Korean leader.

That's in part because of South Korea's diplomatic outreach to the North, which was highlighted by two summits this spring between the rivals' leaders.
