Kim asks Trump to visit Pyongyang in July

Kim asks Trump to visit Pyongyang in July

Now he is poised to become the first sitting USA president to meet with a North Korean leader. "Create peace and great prosperity for his land".

Before that, the top news in North Korea had been tremendously mundane, all things considered - a visit by Kim to a seafood restaurant in Pyongyang.

Trump and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (lee haz-ee-en lahng) are meeting Monday at the Istana house.

In October, Trump praised the USA relationship with Singapore and called Loong a "wonderful and loyal partner".

Trump spoke only briefly in public on Monday, forecasting a "nice" outcome.

Trump is expected to hold his first meeting with Kim Tuesday with only translators in the room, leaving advisers to wait outside, a senior administration official said.

In tamping down expectations, Trump himself has described this initial meeting as the start of a process.

"The success will be in the shutter clicks of the cameras", he said.

"When I woke up this morning I saw the news in the newspaper that our respected Marshal went to Singapore for the North Korea-U.S. summit", said Han Il Gwang, a Pyongyang resident, displaying typical discretion when speaking to an Associated Press Television crew.

Alluding to the North's concerns that giving up its nuclear weapons could surrender its primary deterrent to forced regime change, Pompeo told reporters that the US was prepared to take action to provide North Korea with "sufficient certainty" that denuclearization "is not something that ends badly for them".

Preliminary meetings have already begun.

North Koreans have gotten their first news that their leader Kim Jong Un had arrived in Singapore for what even the state-run media was calling a historic meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Rising animosities eased after then-North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, the late grandfather of Kim Jong Un, expressed regret over the killing.

According to accounts of the G-7 meeting, officials from other members of the bloc confronted Trump with a torrent of statistics about the importance of the US -authored global order and the merits of free trade. Kim and Lee also met on Sunday.

Moon's self-appointed role of matchmaker was accentuated further in May when Trump called off the meeting, citing hostilities displayed by Pyongyang.

Hours earlier, a jet carrying Kim landed.

It was a striking about-face from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged USA dotard". The only logical explanation for Rodman's visit to Singapore would have to do with the fact that he has been closely associated with Jong Un and Trump in the past.

Lobster bisque, beef tenderloin and ice cream were on the lunch menu, and there was also an early birthday cake for Trump, who turns 72 on Thursday. The former businessman said he has spend a lifetime preparing for negotiations of this type, and predicted he would know in an instant if Kim is serious about the topic of denuclearization. "Just my touch, my feel".

From Kim's nuclear arsenal to normalising ties between the two decades-old foes, these are the issues facing the two leaders at what Trump has called a "one-time shot" at peace. "But I really feel confident. It's never going to be there again".
