The two leaders were expected to talk on their own for up to 45 minutes, with only their translators present, before expanded bilateral meetings with their staff.
Trump predicted he would have a “great relationship” with the North Korean leader as their summit began in Singapore, while Kim said “we came here after overcoming” all the obstacles.
