With a handshake that lasted for about 13 seconds, North Korea's Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump on Tuesday scripted history during the first-ever and much-awaited meeting between the two countries. "I am so happy", Rodman, visibly shaking and crying, said.

"I think he loved it", Mr Trump said, referring to Mr Kim.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the USA and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said.
