But North Korea kicked out the inspectors after the Bush administration accused it of cheating.
"I think that very quickly I'll know that something good is going to happen", Trump said in Canada where we met leaders of other G7 economies.
The two leaders shook hands for a few seconds with the two nations' national flags in the background. Yes, kind words, yes, they're meeting.

Pompeo also expressed confidence of a "successful outcome" but said that the summit would also lead to a lot more to be done in the path ahead, providing a "framework for the hard work that will follow".
"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearize, and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", Pompeo said.
The meeting on Tuesday between the U.S. president and North Korea's leader, unthinkable until recent months and uncertain until June 1, is a high-stakes and politically risky venture into summit diplomacy by two unpredictable personalities who have famously exchanged personal insults and threats of war.
Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire US mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the USA and the North. The meeting is meant to be "start of a relationship", the official said, and there could be more to come between both sides if things go well. "And it's my honor to be involved".
Trump is sounding optimistic about his ability to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program after a lengthy one-on-one meeting with leader Kim Jong Un.

It is also unclear whether USA officials will raise human rights issues in meetings with the North Koreans.
Pompeo added the U.S.is "hopeful" the summit will "set the conditions for future productive talks". The North may see a treaty - and its presumed safety assurances from Washington - as its best way of preserving the Kim family dynasty.
Previously, Trump had derided Kim as "Little Rocket Man" and pledged to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued to make nuclear threats.
