But the meeting also produced more questions than answers, with the big one being: Will the North Korean dictator actually follow through on denuclearizing?

The signed document includes a pledge from Mr Kim to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons.

But Trump told ABC News he believes that the trust is mutual.

The meeting is set to take place Tuesday morning (Monday evening Washington time), when the leaders will talk one-on-one. "The bad news is that the hard decisions now need to be made on a relatively tight timeline".

A baby step towards denuclearization it may be, but it's not sitting well with some.

"I too, got little sleep last night", he said.

"Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the document states.

Rodman was crying from behind his dark sunglasses while wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and explaining to CNN's Chris Cuomo the trials he's faced to try to create peace between the USA and North Korea, including receiveing death threats.

It was not immediately clear whether the freeze represents a major concession or not.

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds.

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

Despite North Korea being subject to United States sanctions on human rights grounds and the locus of ongoing crimes against humanity according to the UN, Kim Jong-Un and Trump were all smiles in Singapore.

"It's pretty comprehensive", Trump said about the document, adding that denuclearisation could begin "very quickly". He said the USA is working on the issue with South Korea, and Japan-as well as with China, but "to a lesser extent".


President Donald Trump's announcement that the USA will stop military exercises with South Korea startled Tokyo and Seoul, unsettled United States lawmakers, and took at least some parts of the Pentagon by surprise.

"The fact that we have been chosen as the site of the meeting... says something about Singapore's relations with the parties - with America, with North Korea - (and) also our standing in the worldwide community", said Lee. "And they're not ready if they can not exercises".

The White House did not explain what led Mrs Trump to seek treatment or whether the "benign kidney condition" meant she had a benign tumour or something else. "Is this forever, or while the talks or going on, just for next month?"

"It should go fairly well, but people should not expect so much for the first time", Rodman told reporters at the airport. "I am so happy", Rodman, visibly shaking and crying, said.

The declaration took some South Korean and US military officials by surprise - though US Defence secretary Jim Mattis was not among them, with spokeswoman Dana White saying "there were no surprises".
