Will the Singapore Summit Be the Beginning of a New Era? | Inside Story

Donald Trump has become the first US president to meet and shake hands with a North Korean leader. After months of speculation and threats, the two men met on Singapore's Sentosa island.

They held a 40-minute meeting, followed by a signing of a joint statement in which they agreed to the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. But it was a document vague in detail and lacking a time frame. So, what will the North Korean leader get in return for agreeing to 'denuclearise'?
