White House says Trump plans early summit departure

Industry observers Peaceful North Korea can expand India's Act East markets

"It's the case in each of those two countries there are only two people that can make decisions of this magnitude and those two people are going to be sitting in the room together tomorrow", said Pompeo.

President Trump had just left Canada after the G7 summit.

Kim Jong-un's bodyguards are some of the fittest in the business.

American leaders have traditionally criticized North Korean leaders for their totalitarian rule over their country and violent suppression of dissent.

The pledge on denuclearization did not include the USA demands for a "complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement" of North Korea's nuclear weapons programs, she pointed out.

The White House has made it clear that their goal is to shut down the Communist nation's nuclear program.

The Royal Plaza on Scotts, a hotel near the Shangri-La where Trump is staying, was selling a Trump-Kim burger featuring kimchi, the spicy fermented dish that is a staple of Korean food.

In the hours before the summit began, Trump expressed optimism about prospects for the first-ever meeting of sitting United States and North Korean leaders, while Pompeo injected a note of caution whether Kim would prove to be honest about his willingness to denuclearise.

History is being made in Singapore Monday with the highly anticipated summit between the USA and North Korea. White-uniformed U.S. Navy members are perched on pearl-colored couches.

One dispatch by the Korean Central News Agency said North Korea and the United States would exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing new relations, building a "permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism", achieving denuclearisation and "other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era".

Both the leaders will discuss issues such as North Korea denuclearisation and an end to the Korean War, Fox News reported.

Talks at North Korean summit moving 'more quickly than expected'
Kim arrived in a Air China 747 that touched down at Changi Airport on Sunday afternoon, Singapore's Straits Times said. Mr Lee also said it was "not easy" to find a location in the world that is suitable to host such a high-level meeting.

Giving voice to the anticipation felt around the world as the meeting opened, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday he "hardly slept" before the summit.

Pompeo met Kim during two visits to North Korea in the lead-up to Tuesday's summit.

The meeting was Trump's only scheduled public event today. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters this month that the troops, most stationed on the border between the two Koreas, are "not going anywhere", adding, "It's not even a subject of the discussions".

"We'll probably need another summit", Trump said during the news conference that lasted more than an hour.

Pompeo also says Tuesday's meeting presents a test of Kim's willingness to agree to deal his nuclear weapons away for "protections" from the United States.

Mr. Balakrishnan, who received Mr. Kim on Sunday at Changi Airport, said the summit comes after 70 years of suspicion, war and diplomatic failures. But the White House said he will instead leave at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday -almost 15 hours earlier.

China has played a role in North Korea's isolation after agreeing to global sanctions put in force by the United Nations, and has also been seen as keen to keep itself as the major diplomatic force influencing Pyongyang.

Pyongyang's definition of denuclearization is much more opaque, but is believed to be much broader in scope and possibly include things like USA nuclear-capability assets in the region, Washington's large troop presence on South Korea or its inclusion of Seoul in its "nuclear umbrella".

Sung Kim has taken the lead on policy negotiations with North Korea.

Mr Pompeo said Mr Trump was "fully prepared" for the talks, and was optimistic that the outcome would be "successful".
