Donald Trump arrives in Singapore for historic US-N Korea summit

Donald Trump arrives in Singapore for historic US-N Korea summit

April 18: Mr Trump confirms that Mike Pompeo, then the Central Intelligence Agency chief, had met Mr Kim secretly in North Korea and said "a good relationship was formed" heading into the anticipated summit.

In terms of the relationships between the group of G-7 leaders, Trump called it "a ideal 10" on a scale between "zero and 10". Kim is scheduled to begin a summit Tuesday with President Trump.

Tuesday's Singapore meeting is the climax of the astonishing flurry of diplomacy on and around the Korean peninsula this year, but critics charge that it risks being largely a triumph of style over substance.

The art of the unconventional deal?

. "When the government says, there is prosperity in terms of food and rice, we see it ourselves and see that there is a drought and there is no food for us", Kim said.

President Donald Trump meets with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan in the Oval Office of the White House, in Washington, June 7.

The summit was arranged as there were strong incentives for both leaders, said Agathe L'Homme, The Economist Intelligence Unit's Asia analyst. There was no need to. The South Korean president says the "fate and the future of the Korean Peninsula hinge" on the meeting in Singapore. There's probably an even better chance that it will take a period of time.

In an update on traffic arrangements, the Singapore Police Force said there will be temporary road closures in the vicinity of Anderson Road towards Orchard Road and that motorists can expect delays.

Abe jetted into Washington hoping to ensure a decades-old tough united front on North Korea is not swept away by the history of the moment. One dispatch by the Korean Central News Agency said North Korea and the U.S. would exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing new relations, building a "permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism", achieving denuclearization and "other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era".

The president also said no issue concerning both countries is off limits come Tuesday. He has not left his country since taking office in 2011 other than to visit China and the South Korean side of the Demilitarised Zone on the border.

Trump Won't Invite The Cavaliers Or The Warriors To The White House
On Tuesday, LeBron James said neither his Cavaliers nor the Warriors would accept a visit as a victor of the NBA Finals . Trump said there is a chance that the Washington Capitals can come to the White House.

Trump said at the least, he hoped the meeting would start a dialogue and a direct understanding between himself and the reclusive leader of North Korea.

Kim arrived at Singapore's Changi Airport after his longest trip overseas as head of state, wearing his trademark dark "Mao suit" and distinctive high-cut hairstyle.

His convoy included more than 20 vehicles, including an ambulance. Later, Kim met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at Lee's office in the sprawling palace known as the Istana.

Trump is set to meet with Lee on Monday.

The running bodyguards of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which made an appearance for the first time during the inter-Korean summit in April this year are now back in action, this time in Singapore.

The men have tie-ups with several local businesses and will also make an appearance at a seafood restaurant.

In return, Mr Kim called him "mentally deranged" and a "dotard". Soon after, Mr Kim declared that his country had achieved its mission of becoming a nuclear state, with missiles that could reach the US.

Officials from South Korea visited a shuttered joint economic project in Kaesong, North Korea, on Friday, possibly in preparation to reopen the site that was closed in 2016 following a North Korean nuclear test.

But as he embarked for Singapore he changed his tune, calling it a "one-time shot" and adding he will know "within the first minute" whether an agreement will be possible. "People don't know much about him".
