  • Trump Greets 3 Americans Freed by North Korea

The summit represents the first between a United States president and a North Korean leader, a remarkable turnaround in the pair's relationship from the start of the year.

"The relationship is good, hopefully for all of us, for the world, hopefully, something very good is going to happen", he told the crowd. Trump wrote in a tweet.

Nevertheless, the tension has subsided after Kim agreed to postpone nuclear missile tests and to discuss "denuclearization". "Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

He added that while Mr Trump's has recently praised Kim, the administration is not ignoring the North's abysmal human rights record.

Tony Kim, Kim Hak Song and Kim Dong Chul are three relieved and happy campers today.

Pompeo said there would need to be "complete" and "verifiable" denuclearization that would remove North Korea as a threat to the South, the United States and the rest of the world.

While the release of American citizens from North Korea back to the United States has been universally viewed as a positive, others are skeptical of Donald Trump.

"My proudest achievement will be - this is part of it - when we denuclearise that entire peninsula".

World Health Organization hopes to deploy vaccine after fresh Ebola outbreak in DR Congo
Despite the remote location, one worrying sign is that the outbreak involves three separate locations that cover about 37 miles. A new experimental vaccine has been shown to be highly effective against the virus, though quantities are now limited.

Now a string of US-led sanctions are imposed on North Korea in a bid to hinder its efforts at developing nuclear weapons.

The historic summit comes on the heels of a series of meetings between the North Korean leader, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Singapore, nearly 3,000 miles south of Pyongyang, maintains diplomatic relations with North Korea which has an embassy and ambassador in the country.

Mr Trump's announcement came just hours after three Americans, who had been held prisoner in North Korea, arrived at a U.S. military base outside Washington, after being released by Mr Kim.

USA officials had also considered holding the summit at the Korean demilitarised zone or in Mongolia, but ultimately settled on the city-state of Singapore as the location.

The stakes will be high when Trump sits down with Kim. "We talked about the fact that America has often in history had adversaries who we are now close partners with and our hope that we can achieve the same with respect to North Korea".

North Korean state media said they were arrested either for subversion or "hostile acts" against the government. "I really think a lot of progress has been made".
