The historic first meeting between a sitting USA president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room. Generations of North Korean leaders have made and broken promises before - this Administration's success will be judged on whether it can eliminate Kim's nuclear weapons and verify they are gone. Kim is widely believed to have ordered the execution of his own uncle and half-brother.

Trump made the comments as he and Kim walked together along balcony as they headed to a larger meeting with aides. -North Korea relations and to recover the remains of prisoners of war and military members missing in action.

Kim and Trump are presented as the central figures in the trailer, with the chance to remake the world and change history.

"I am willing to do a lot of things to get [Kim] to give up their nuclear weapons and end their missile program".

Trump announced that he will be freezing USA military "war games" with its ally South Korea while negotiations between the two countries continue.

The US has long held the view that North Korea's illegitimate military activities can't be traded away for its right to do legitimate military activities. "Although you can not finish that process for a while, but you can not go back", Mr Trump said.

Pressed during a news conference about North Korea's brutal rule, including the killings of Kim's uncle and half-brother and the malnutrition of its people, Trump reiterated that he thinks the 34-year-old dictator is "talented".

"The sanctions will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor", Trump said in Singapore after his summit with Kim.

Man holds two people hostage in Paris
The attacker, who appeared to be brandishing a fake weapon, had doused his remaining two hostages in petrol, the source said. A pregnant woman is reportedly being held captive along with possibly two other people in Paris , according to Daily Mail .

Picking up a theme he had hammered on the presidential campaign trail, but which worries allies in Seoul and Tokyo who rely on U.S. defence, he said: "I want to get our soldiers out".

A confident leader strode into the Singapore summit and won. "But that's not part of the equation right now", Mr. Trump said.

The White House has not yet released the document, but the words were clearly visible in photographs taken when Trump displayed it to the gathered reporters.

Current and former U.S. defence officials expressed concern at the possibility that the United States would unilaterally halt military exercises without an explicit concession from North Korea that lowers the threat from Pyongyang. The language in the joint statement was weaker than in previous agreements - the very significant difference being that the North is now much further advanced in its nuclear programme.

At one point, it features a montage with babies and auto factories, suggesting what a more prosperous future for North Korea could look like if it agreed to give up its nuclear arsenal.

By meeting with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday in front of thousands of journalists and photographers, Trump has already given the regime a carrot it long sought, and he threw in an additional concession by suspending US military exercises with South Korea.

As the president explained it, the video was an elevator pitch - the sort of glitzy production that Trump might have once used to persuade an investor to finance a hotel and that he now hopes will persuade the leader of one of the most repressive regimes in the world to end almost 70 years of global isolation and militant hostility to the United States.

In the run-up to the meeting, Trump had predicted the two men might strike a nuclear deal or forge a formal end to the Korean War in the course of a single meeting or over several days. Instead of months or years of low-level talks culminating in a landmark accord, Trump agreed to a face-to-face meeting with Kim at the outset, before either side had even agreed on a broad definition of denuclearization.
