Kim summit is set for Sentosa Island

Kim summit is set for Sentosa Island

The White House this week confirmed the summit between Trump and Kim would be held on Singapore's southern island of Sentosa.

North Korea is believed to favour a phased denuclearisation, where economic benefits will come into effect alongside a rolling back of its nuclear programme.

Kim is a huge basketball fan and Rodman considers Kim a friend.

The unprecedented event would mark the first-ever meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader.

President Trump cracked an 'awkward' joke about Melania: 'Did she leave him?'
He said the media had speculated that the first lady may have left him, before pointing out that she was sitting in the front row. It started on May 10, when the 48-year-old welcomed home three American detainees released by North Korea with husband Donald.


In April, South Korean adviser Chung-in Moon was even more specific, saying North Korea might be interested in welcoming a McDonald's if tensions between the USA and North Korea ease, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I still hope that this meeting - a very courageous and mature decision U.S. President Donald Trump has made, to have direct contacts with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - will take place, and we all expect a positive outcome", Putin said in an interview with China Media Group.

Dennis Rodman has met Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang during other trips.

On the possibility of an official declaration of the end of the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended in armistice, and the signing of a peace treaty, Nauert said, "I don't want to speculate on the timing or what may or may not happen".

Ryder Cup Team standings, jumping 19 spots from 36th to 17th with his second-place finish. "Just to win his event is an honour". DeChambeau won $1.6 million for the victory, while An and Stanley each won $783,200 for finishing in a tie for second.


Sir Henry Bellingham, foreign office minister 2010 and 2012, told this newspaper that he was "extremely sceptical" of North Korea's rhetoric, but added the "catastrophic" state of the economy could convince Kim to do a deal. "I think that has resonated to this whole point now".

Singapore is set to host a summit meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at Capella Hotel on Sentosa island on Jun 12.

The notice said airspace over Singapore will be temporarily restricted for parts of June 11, 12 and 13.

It also houses the luxurious Capella Hotel, which - at a distance from centres of population - can be more easily secured.

London Fire Brigade station manager Pam Oparaocha said: "Firefighters are working extremely hard to bring the fire under control". Nearly 100 firefighters and 15 fire engines are battling a blaze at the luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel in central London .


Sentosa is home to palm-fringed beaches, tourist sites and some of the best golf courses in Asia and Universal Studios Singapore.
