Donald Trump has met Kim Jong-un, shaking the North Korean leader's hand and posing for the cameras at a historic summit in Singapore. "To all Americans and the rest of the world I'm honored to call President Trump a friend", he said.

He talked about the pair achieving "tremendous success together" and predicts that "it will be successful".

President says he will meet with North Korea in Singapore.

The interview, which will be conducted at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore, will air in full on FNC's Hannity on Tuesday at 9PM ET.

"Tomorrow we will get our clearest indication to date of whether Chairman Kim Jong Un truly shares this vision", Pompeo said.

Rodman later said he asked Kim to release the student "three times" during that visit, and he urged the North Korean leader to do so as an act of "good faith".

"The entire world is focusing on the historic summit between the DPRK and the USA, and thanks to your honest efforts. we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Mr Kim told Mr Lee through an interpreter.

Experts on North Korea say that the shortened meeting time leaves nearly no room to forge a path for Pyongyang's "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization", or CVID, which the US State Department was promising just last week. And on January 1, Kim shifted his approach to the outside world: He went from flouting worldwide rules and leaders to engaging in a flurry of diplomatic overtures. "We will be tremendously successful", Trump said before their private session.

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted a jab at those who doubted the meeting. The two leaders are expected to leave their hotels at 8 am (IST 5.30 am) separately, Channel News Asia reports.

The Trump-Kim summit, which will be held at the Capella Hotel on Tuesday morning, will mark the first time a North Korean leader has met with a sitting United States president.

PM Lee added that from Singapore's point of view, it is important that the meeting takes place and has a positive outcome - one that sets developments "on a new trajectory, and will be conducive to the stability and security in the region".

For better part of an hour, Trump and Kim will square off one on one, alone but for a pair of translators. To some national security veterans, it raised concerns about the risk of holding such a monumental meeting solo.

Kim has shown surprising diplomatic skills in his meetings with overseas leaders this year.

He said: "We have had substantive and detailed meetings to date, including this morning with the North Koreans". No, no, say others, you need to manage your expectations.

Perhaps most importantly, we're asking Kim for something very big, something we want very much, and something he is disinclined to give.

The two leaders, who initially looked cautious, were later seen more relaxed.
