“Nice to meet you Mr President,” was Kim Jong-un’s first words to US President Donald Trump, who responded, “It’s my honour. We will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”

A peace treaty ending the Korean War, complete denuclearisation of North Korea or will it be just an elaborate get-to-know-you session? Amid an uncertain outcome, Trump and Kim met in Singapore Tuesday, the first-ever meeting between leaders of the two countries. The summit between the two firebrand leaders is being closely watched across the world.

The meeting between the two world leaders is underway at the Capella Hotel, a secluded luxury resort on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. While US President Donald Trump remained hopeful of the meeting and expected a “terrific” relationship with North Korea, Kim Jong-Un suggested that the road to the historic meeting was not an easy one.

The visit between Trump and Kim is being closely watched by India and the country will seek redressal of its own concerns about North Korea’s support for Pakistan’s nuclear and missile programmes. In March, Minister of State for External Affairs General V K Singh paid a two-day visit to North Korea, the first ministerial visit from India to North Korea in nearly two decades.
