Hyon is head of North Korea's hugely popular Moranbong girl band, whose members were hand-picked by Kim Jong Un. This is just an elaborate get-to-know-you session, albeit between the two most famous leaders in the world, and nuclear armed at that. "Ultimately, this is our contribution to world peace". It also has two presidential suites, so Trump and Kim won't have to duke it out over who gets the big room.
Trump has faced intense pressure to win something similar to this.
Kim, 72, has been Kim Jong Un's most trusted policy adviser since the North Korean leader began a peace offensive with the US and South Korea in January.
Choe, a vice foreign minister, is the highest-level female diplomat in North Korea. Trump and Kim sat across from each other near the center of a long table.
Probably. In fact, Trump has been doing quite a bit of this lately. This means that the topic of lifting sanctions against Pyongyang will also most likely be on the summit's agenda. "The 'plus" refers to discussions on ending the Korean War".
As for Singapore, the White House said Trump was leaving early because negotiations had moved "more quickly than expected", but gave no details about any possible progress in preliminary talks.
"I feel really", Trump told reporters.

"We're going to have a great discussion", Trump said.
Kim is a departmental director at North Korea's United Front Department, the Workers' Party organization that handles inter-Korean relations. The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
Trump arrived at the hotel after issuing a flurry of tweets dismissing skeptics of the meeting between USA leaders and the rogue nuclear nation as "haters & losers". "However, now there are good chances to push North Korean nuclear/missile programme back, for many years perhaps, and keep it that way for some time".
Trump made the comments sitting next to Kim minutes after the two leaders shook hands for the first time, images that were broadcast worldwide.
"Thanks PM Lee for spending $20 million of taxpayers money, which can. help a lot of needy families in Singapore to survive", posted one Facebook user.
At the conclusion of the summit, President Trump will participate in a media availability before departing tomorrow at approximately 8 p.m. for the United States. "This circumstance in and of itself provides a new buffer against the prospect of military escalation in Korea that was not present at the end of 2017".
