Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un Arrive For US-North Korea Summit

Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un Arrive For US-North Korea Summit

President Trump traveled to the summit - which will be the first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader - from a G7 meeting in Quebec, Canada.

US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are in Singapore ahead of their critical meet on June 12.

The key issue at the summit will be how far Trump and Kim will be able to work out a concrete roadmap toward North Korea's denuclearization.

Finally, on Monday morning, the Korean Central News Agency, or KCNA, reported Kim was in Singapore, had met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and would meet Trump on Tuesday.

The first-ever DPRK-U.S. summit is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. Singapore time Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island. I'll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really - in my heart, we're going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world.

News that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited North Korea was front page news with a big photo of him shaking Kim's hand the following day in the ruling party newspaper, the Rodong Sinmun.

North Korea's state media has yet to report Kim's trip to Singapore.

Trump also flew into Singapore on Sunday, shortly after attending the Group of 7 summit in Canada.

The Trump administration has previously insisted on "complete, verifiable, irreversible disarmament" (CVID) of North Korea, with the emphasis on unilateral steps by Pyongyang rewarded by United States security assurances.

Mr Trump has said it normally takes him about five seconds to figure out whether he will get along with someone.

This was 25 per cent up on the same period for the previous year, when she had been unwell with a heavy cold. Her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, turns 97 on Sunday and has retired from public duties .

"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the U.S. and his safe return", the KCNA said.

It's unclear what Trump and Kim might decide Tuesday.

But many say this is highly unlikely, given how hard it has been for Kim to build his program and given that the weapons are seen as the major guarantee to his holding onto unchecked power.

The North invaded the South in 1950 and the ensuing war pitted US-led United Nations troops backing Seoul against Pyongyang's forces which were aided by China.

But it is Mr Kim's pursuit of nuclear weapons that gives his meeting with Mr Trump such high stakes.

It is an extraordinary turnaround from the rhetoric of previous year, when Trump threatened the North with "fire and fury" and Kim dubbed him a "mentally deranged USA dotard".

Mr Kim was driven to the city centre on Sunday in a stretch Mercedes-Benz limousine accompanied by a convoy of more than 20 vehicles.

Trump's hotel is only 570 meters, or a five-minute walk, away from The St. Regis hotel where Kim is staying.

They were given a "stern warning" before being expelled on Saturday, police said in a statement soon after North Korean leader Kim landed in the city-state.
