Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump in Singapore for historic summit

Flight from Pyongyang lands in Singapore ahead of North Korean leader’s arrival

Tuesday's summit will be the first between a North Korean leader and a sitting American president.

Mr Trump, who is in Singapore for the first time since he took office in January 2017, is also due to have a separate meeting with Mr Lee at the same venue on Monday.

Hong Kong-based impersonator Howard X, who has attracted worldwide attention in recent months for his impression of Kim, appeared on stage with Trump lookalike Dennis Alan.

It also offered a list of Pyongyang's talking points, saying Kim and Trump will exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing a new relationship, the issue of building a "permanent and durable peace mechanism" and realizing the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Kim held a meeting with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong ahead of the planned summit.

The U.S. administration officials included on the trip are Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser John Bolton, Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin, Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel, National Security Council-Asia Director Matt Pottinger, senior adviser Steven Miller, press secretary Sarah Sanders and NSC communications official Sarah Tinsley.

Lu Chao, a Korean affairs specialist at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, also said Beijing had a role to play in the process in the future.

It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

"Our people have been working very, very well with the representatives of North Korea".

Trump descended from Air Force One into the steamy Singapore night, greeting officials and declaring he felt "very good" before being whisked away to his hotel via a route lined with police and photo-snapping onlookers.

Trump hopes to persuade Kim to completely abandon the arsenal of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that the North Koreans have spent more than a generation amassing.

But in early 2018, North Korea began attempts to improve relations with South Korea by sending a team and delegates to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

"The recent example of such unilateralism and the defiance of the decisions of the global community by the USA government is its withdrawal from the JCPOA", he said, referring to the nuclear agreement by its official name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Francis said he wanted yet again to send "a special thought in friendship and prayer" to the beloved Korean people.

Singapore's hosting of the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will cost the nation "around $20 million", said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (10 June).

Kim smiled broadly yesterday evening as he met Lee.

US President Donald Trump trusts his deal-making intuition to prepare for talks with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Previous year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the USA mainland, while Trump threatened the North with "fire and fury" and Kim dubbed him a "mentally deranged United States dotard".

Some critics have said the summit is being rushed through, with Trump keen to chalk up his first major foreign policy achievement.
