It's history!

US President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un have met at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore, the first meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader. They shook hands on the steps of the hotel before cameras.

Trump and Kim will first have a one-on-one talk, before they are joined by advisors for talks later this morning.

It is a stunning development for the two nations, who regularly traded threats and insults throughout 2017.

On the agenda is North Korea's nuclear capabilities, which Trump is hoping to convince them to abandon in exchange for economic assistance.
