The menu for a working lunch served to U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and their delegations during their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore

Kim and President Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday ahead of Tuesday's historic summit.

US President Donald Trump and leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un held the first face-to-face meeting in Singapore on Tuesday, TASS reports from the media center.

Mr Trump made the comments as they walked together to a larger meeting along with officials from their delegations.

The White House said Trump would be joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser John Bolton and the US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, who has lent his Korea expertise to the talks.

The North Korean motorcade, believed to be carrying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, travels along Singapore's Orchard Road, June 10, 2018, ahead of the summit with USA leader Donald Trump.

Officials remain uncertain what will come out of Tuesday's unprecedented summit, the first of its kind between a sitting USA president and the leader of North Korea.

Who are the key players in the North Korea regime and how are they related to the Supreme Leader?

Asked by a reporter how the meeting was going, Trump said: "Very good".

Several hours later, camera crews captured Kim and his entourage entering another luxury hotel on the island: the Marina Bay Sands - a 55-floor hotel and entertainment mecca with an infinity pool, lookout point, and the Ce La Vi bar and restaurant on the rooftop.

Human-rights advocates who lauded Trump when he hosted eight North Korean defectors at the White House days after his State of the Union speech are now uneasy about his engagement with Kim, whom the president recently praised as "very honourable".

North Korea has previously said it was willing to discuss denuclearization, but experts have expressed concern over the varying definitions of the term held by Washington and Pyongyang. NY time - in front of reporters, the president and the North Korean leader secluded themselves on Singapore's Sentosa island for roughly 45 minutes while their entourages waited nearby. Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he a meeting with other world leaders.

The summit is not expected to last beyond Tuesday, with both leaders set to leave Singapore shortly after concluding their meetings.

North Korea, however, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule.

"The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America, and thanks to your honest efforts ... we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Kim told Lee through an interpreter.

The thaw, however temporary, is a far cry from past year, when Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" and mocked Kim as "Little Rocket Man", and Kim slammed Trump as the "mentally deranged United States dotard".

Trump is hoping to make a legacy-defining deal that some say could earn him a Nobel Peace Prize.

Kim leaned to his left in a casual manner toward the US President. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders. In the case of the inter-Korea summit - which began on the morning of April 27 - the coverage was largely delayed until early the next day. "And I believe in North Korea".
