Less than a year ago, President Trump and Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, were threatening each other’s countries with nuclear annihilation. On Tuesday morning, they sat down in Singapore for a historic meeting.
The stakes are high for both of them. Mr. Kim is seeking relief from international sanctions imposed over his nuclear weapons program. Mr. Trump — who agreed to the meeting, then canceled it, then said it was back on — is eager to succeed where his predecessors failed to rein in the North’s nuclear weapons program.
The two leaders will discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, though they may have different ideas about what that means, and could even explore a peace treaty that would formally end the Korean War after 65 years.
New York Times reporters and a photographer are covering the talks live from Singapore, where the meeting began at 9 a.m. local time on Tuesday (9 p.m. Eastern on Monday). Below are photographs of events related to the summit meeting and of the meeting as it unfolds. Follow all of our live updates.
