Trump, North Korea's Kim Jong Un sign unspecified document

As President Trump meets with North Korea's Kim Jong-Un, Hoosier lawmakers in Washington have offered their feedback on the historic summit.

It will be the first-ever meeting between the leaders of the USA and North Korea.

Trump and Kim are expected to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles programs, but the president has cautioned that the summit is meant to mark the beginning of a dialogue between the two countries rather than the conclusion of negotiations.

The U.S. delegation including Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State, John Kelly, the Chief of Staff, John Bolton, the National Security Advisor, will participate in the talks.

"Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, toured various places of Singapore on June 11", the KCNA reported.

"Just now, a very, very big moment in history. and a long, long way to go", Mr Rudd tweeted.

On the way forward, Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". Whether the talks break down, whether they come to an agreement, whether agree to agree or even agree to disagree I think Kim comes out a victor.

After he took office in January 2017, Trump took a hard line against North Korea, rolling out a campaign of severe United Nations sanctions and trade blockades dubbed "maximum pressure" to get Pyongyang to abandon its pursuit of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

President Trump traveled to the Singapore meeting after attending the G-7 economic summit in Canada where he called out allied nations for what he feels are "unfair" trade practices, according to a BBC report.

He told reporters at Changi airport that he had come to Singapore "to see what's going on" and he hoped "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world". "We have developed a special bond", he said.

"They released those three Americans last month, and also, of course, they made denuclearization pledges through the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in".

Mr Trump spoke only briefly in public on Monday, forecasting a "nice" outcome.
