Will Donald Trump's Meeting With Kim Jon Un Go Well?

US President Donald Trump waves upon his arrival at Paya Lebar Air Base in Singapore before his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

"The fact that our two leaders are sitting down face-to-face is a sign of the enormous potential to accomplish something that will immensely benefit both of our peoples and the entire world".

For the USA, the Singapore summit comes on the heels of Trump's controversial G-7 appearance, where he butted heads with key US allies.

Kim Jong-un's bodyguards are some of the fittest in the business. As it happens, the North Korean and the American share a tendency to act unpredictably on the world stage.

His nuclear program sparked a war of words with Trump a year ago after it was believed to have gained the capability to hit the mainland US, though Kim has recently said he shut down any further tests as a gesture of goodwill.

At the Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa island, a popular resort destination, Trump and Kim will first meet at 9 a.m. local time on Tuesday (9 p.m. ET Monday) for a handshake and photo op.

"It was possible that we got to this point thanks to President Trump and Chairman Kim's bold decisions".

Meeting with staged ceremony on a Singapore island, Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed just unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating USA and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch.

"The fact that the leaders of North Korea and the USA arrived in Singapore yesterday marks the official beginning of the summit and that is highly significant".

The summit - the first ever between a sitting American president and North Korea's leader - would have seen the two leaders greeting each other, before a one-on-one meeting which a U.S. official said could last up to two hours, with only translators joining them.

Trump also reached Singapore on Sunday night.

A South Korean parliamentary source said negotiators from both countries "were debating over whether to put [the term] CVID" in the joint communique to be released after the summit.

Trump and Kim have a one-on-one meeting in the morning followed by a luncheon and an extended summit attended by their aides in the afternoon.

Trump also tweeted: "Meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly. but in the end, that doesn't matter". Otherwise, the relationship between the two countries could quickly become fraught with frustration and misunderstandings.

"We'll probably need another summit", Trump said during the news conference that lasted more than an hour.

The President announced he would withdraw from a trade agreement with US allies.

Upon his arrival, President Trump first met with the Prime Minister of Singapore, who is hosting the summit. 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 - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

If that's the approach Trump is instinctively drawn to, USA officials and experts worry Trump could make the concession in his first meeting with Kim.

The security guarantees could include an official declaration of an end to the Korean War, changes to the US-South Korea combined military exercises and lifting of economic sanctions, they added.

Mr Pompeo said Mr Trump was "fully prepared" for the talks, and was optimistic that the outcome would be "successful".

Pompeo said these guarantees would be "different and unique" than America has been willing to provide before. The US may also look for North Korea to declare the existence and location of all the elements of its nuclear program.
