The two leaders walked each other and shared a handshake with the flags of the two countries in the backdrop.

"Getting a good picture everybody?" Trump said: "That's true".

With his mouth agape, Kim's reaction to the remark appeared to be that of shock. Trump said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country, which successive United States administrations have targeted for gross human rights violations.

International security expert and COO of Interfor International, Don Aviv, tells Inside Edition that every bit of food Kim Jong Un ate was previously examined by food tasters.

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

Aviv said the U.S "use [s] chemical tests and biological tests as opposed to someone having to taste the food". While specific details were not included in the document, the president told reporters afterwards that Washington will be freezing USA and South Korean military "war games" while negotiations with Pyongyang play out.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said. -South Korea drills has been North Korea's "standard demand" for decades.

The account Wednesday in the official Rodong Sinmun newspaper could signal the first rift with President Trump over the perceived path forward with the North's leader, Kim Jong Un.

The meeting was also a success from a security and optics points of view: smiles were exchanged, in-depth discussions took place between cabinet members, nobody went off script and there were no security breaches, thanks to ironclad preparations by their Singaporean hosts.

"I looked at the document and I said, 'Is this for real?'" he said. "There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

Shaheen and other lawmakers added there should be no cancellation of US military exercises in Asia, as Trump suggested, without first consulting South Korea and other allies in the region. Ultimately, Trump has just willingly sat down with a villain and not gained much in the way of concessions in return.

Japan, the chief USA ally in the region, got none of what it wanted - Kim made no promise to address the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea, and he offered no limits on his ballistic missile programs.

The US would suspend "provocative" war games it holds with South Korea.

Kim has managed to build upon the work of his father and grandfather and secured the highest form of recognition that there is - a bilateral meeting with the president of the most powerful country on the planet.

The US president said he had, and repeated his description of Mr Kim as "talented".

"I think he's going to do these things", Trump said. -South Korea military exercises and ease crippling sanctions against Pyongyang, suggesting via state media that the American leader had explicitly acceded to two of the nuclear-armed nation's top goals during an "epoch-making" summit a day earlier.
