Will North Korea agree to complete denuclearisation?

North Korea summit LIVE

President Vladimir Putin on Thursday conveyed to a senior North Korean official an invitation for Kim Jong Un to visit Russian Federation as he praised the results of his summit with Donald Trump.

It's the first ever meeting between a sitting US president and North Korean leader.

After Trump's stern speech about North Korea's nuclear weapon program last November, Kim's government responded by calling the USA president an "old lunatic" - to which Trump responded by passively calling the North Korean leader "short and fat".

Trump was flanked in the larger meeting by chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton.

Mr Trump left the summit early, and as he flew to Singapore, he tweeted that he was yanking the United States out of the group's traditional closing statement.

And as Trump mentioned in his tweet, the country already released several US hostages prior to the meeting.

"Up until now, it's only been the North Koreans who have made concessions", said Chang, a Daily Beast contributor and author of "The Coming Collapse of China". Picture released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency on June 11, 2018.

Kim was the first to meet with the Singaporean prime minister on Sunday afternoon. I mean, how many presidents have gone into meetings with dictators and come out and said they read them within a minute? Trump briefly called off the summit a few weeks ago before agreeing again to the meeting.

Prior to the first scheduled meeting, Kim spent time getting a nighttime tour of Singapore while President Trump stayed at his hotel, about a mile and a half away from the lodgings for the North Korean delegation, according to the AP.

Predicting a tremendous success of the summit with the DPRK leader, Trump said that it was "an honor" to meet face-to-face with Kim and that he would have "a terrific relationship" with the DPRK leader. Professor Sung-Yoon Lee from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston says: "I think President Trump is walking right into an elaborate trap set by the North Koreans".

North Korea has indicated that it is willing to commit to denuclearisation, but on what terms remains to be seen.
