- US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are meeting for a historic summit on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

When asked if removing USA troops from South Korea is one the topics that is on the agenda for the president's meeting with Kim, Mattis replied: "I don't know".

The president is preparing to meet with North Korea's leader to discuss the country's nuclear weapons program and how to promote peace on the Korean peninsula.

The wider session will include National Security Advisor John Bolton, who almost derailed the summit with hawkish comments about disarming North Korea.

Early meetings between North Korean diplomats and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have reportedly yielded new security concessions from the American side while human rights concerns remain sidelined.

The huddle will come before a larger meeting and a working lunch attended by top advisers to the president and their North Korean counterparts.

Putin says he's confident of long-term Russian growth
President Donald trump congratulated in telephone conversation of Russian President Vladimir Putin on his re-election. The EU imposed sanctions on Moscow over its support to pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea.

Previous summits, North Korean TV has not said anything about them to North Koreans until after the summit was over. "However, history prepares us well for the fact that Kim Jong Un will never-ever-give up his atomic arms".

Kim is on a two-day visit to Changi to take part in the "historic" summit with United States President Donald Trump.

On what success looks like: I think success looks like at least from the Trump administration's perspective that we get an agreement to agree and we form a process going forward where we talk very seriously about what denuclearization looks like. "We have developed a special bond", he said.

But critics said the Kim and Trump summit was more style than substance, producing a document short on specifics about the key issue of Pyongyang's atomic weapons.

Labor leader Bill Shorten said not many people would have predicted the summit would take place, so he was pleased it occurred. Since then, he's launched almost 100 missiles and conducted North Korea's most powerful nuclear tests.
