Kim summit: What's in a name? Signatures show ambition, experts say

Trump was joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, for the expanded talks, while Kim's team included former military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol, foreign minister Ri Yong Ho and Ri Su Yong, vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party. "We're going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful".

North Korea's state media has reported that the country's leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump agreed during their historic summit to visit each other's countries. "If this were a major summit featuring Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE and his witch hunt, every anchor would be here 24/7 and they'd travel 50 hours in the air for that". It was one of the first times an American politician has set foot on North Korean soil in a long time.

The Singapore summit was a potentially legacy-defining meeting for both men - comparable to president Richard Nixon's 1972 visit to China, or Ronald Reagan's 1986 summit with Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik.

As such, North Koreans might have been surprised to see their country's newspapers filled with photos depicting Trump and Kim as equals today (June 13), following the two leaders' meeting in Singapore yesterday (June 12).

Tokyo also, however, cautioned that despite Pyongyang's pledge for denuclearisation no concrete steps had been taken and that Japan would not let down its guard.

Many others made fun of Donald Trump, who is supposedly a very picky eater.

Before the two leaders shared a lunch with their teams for the first time ever, Trump began to joke around about their weight with photographers.

The regime dispatched a commode to "deny determined sewer divers insights into to the supreme leader's stools", The Chosunilbo, one of South Korea's biggest circulated newspapers, reports.
