SINGAPORE, June 11 (Agencies): White House said Monday that nuclear talks with North Korea have moved "more quickly than expected."

President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un tomorrow.

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington on Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday with the North Korean leader in Singapore.

But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim - almost 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited tourist sites on Singapore's waterfront on Monday, hours before a historic summit with US President Donald Trump.

Trump said earlier the Tuesday summit with Kim on a Singapore resort island could "work out very nicely" as officials from both countries sought to narrow differences on how to end a nuclear stand-off on the Korean peninsula.
