From Little Rocket man to Dear Kim: Drama all set for historic talks in Singapore
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un started as arch-antagonists trading insults and threats of war. But now with Trump saying it’s Kim’s only shot at peace, the world is holding its breath waiting for their historic meeting in Singapore.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are meeting in Singapore on Tuesday at around 9am local time and their historic summit will be the first face-to-face talks ever between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. For decades, Washington and Pyongyang barely spoke to each other, neither after the Korean War, nor after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Rare instances when they did engage in talks were limited to negotiating release of American detainees or other issues.
More frequently, both the US and North Korea exchanged insults and threatened military action, and it seemed like nothing was going to change. All of a sudden, it did.
