Singapore: The much awaited historic meet between US President and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un took place on Tuesday. Both the leaders had a successful meeting and North Korea assured to start the process of complete denuclearisation 'very, very quickly'.

After their bilateral meeting at the Capella hotel in Singapore's Sentosa island when Trump and Kim Jong Un sat down for a working lunch, they were presented with a menu that suited the palate of both the leaders.

As the two leaders entered the room, photographs were taken, with US President Donald Trump joking about wanting to get a "beautiful picture" in which he looked good.
