Kim, Trump take a walk




Singapore, June 12:
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump on Tuesday took a walk around the Capella Hotel where the two leaders came face to face for the first time in history.

In a carefully choreographed encounter at around 9 a.m., Trump and Kim shared a 12-second handshake in the courtyard of the British-colonial style hotel against a backdrop of American and North Korean flags.

This was followed by a one-on-one meeting, an expanded bilateral meeting and a working lunch.

After their walk, Trump showed off his car - nicknamed 'The Beast' - to Kim, reports The Straits Times.

Kim and Trump will also sign a joint declaration that might put out a framework for additional talks, reports The Washington Post.

Asked how the discussion went, Trump said: "Very, very good."

The summit, which was almost scrapped by a mercurial Trump last month, comes after a flurry of diplomatic activities and barrage of invective and insults traded between the US President and an equally aggressive Kim.
