Only hours before the White House announcement, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had seemed to lower expectations for the meeting, which Trump had earlier predicted could potentially yield an on-the-spot deal to end the Korean War.

The Trump-Kim summit is the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump at the start of the first meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean counterpart, as the pair endeavour to end a decades-long nuclear stand-off. "The Marshall of North Korea (Kim Jong-un) trusts me".

After a handshake, they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters.

"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the U.S. and his safe return", the KCNA said.

Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

The Trump administration seeks a "complete, verifiable and irreversible" dismantlement of Pyongyang's vast nuclear weapons program, which has produced up to 60 nuclear warheads housed across the country, according to USA intelligence estimates, as well as a sophisticated program for their delivery worldwide.

"This is Trump's natural setting - he's used to being in front of TV cameras while this might not be so natural for Kim", he said.

While advisers say Trump has been reviewing briefing materials, the president insists his gut instincts will matter most when he gets in the room with Kim.

North Korea, however, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule.

"I feel really great".

Kim also expressed optimism, saying through a translator that he and Mr. Trump had an "historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind".

"Nice to meet you, Mr. President", Kim was overheard telling Trump.

He talked about the pair achieving "tremendous success together" and predicts that "it will be successful". Kim is seeking a security guarantee - and possibly a peace treaty - and the removal of the U.S.'s nuclear umbrella protecting allies South Korea and Japan.

"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearize, and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", Pompeo said.

Pompeo laid out some of the USA cards on Monday, saying the administration was sticking to its demand for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the North.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement Tuesday that Trump called a "pretty comprehensive document" while promising to give more details at a news conference later in the day.
