Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un arrive in Singapore for historic summit

Professor Taewoo Kim from Konyang University

The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours.

The foreign minister of Singapore tweeted out a picture of the cake presented to Trump at the luncheon today in Singapore.

Trump arrived a few hours after Kim on Air Force One, directly from a tumultuous G7 summit in Quebec, which ended in a bitter personal exchange between the United States president and the host, the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau. Ambassador Kim arrived with one advisor, past a scrum of television cameras. The newspaper said the vehicles weren't from a local authorized dealer, which suggests the cars were brought in specifically for the summit and may be used by Kim.

The summit has been portrayed as a "get to know you" meeting.

Pompeo had earlier tweeted a photograph at breakfast with ambassador Kim, stating the U.S. position was unchanged: "We remain committed to the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Trump hopes the landmark talks will kick-start a process that eventually see Kim give up his nuclear weapons in an irreversible manner that can be verified internationally. For starters, we need to be realistic about what "success" means. Progress could lead to a peace treaty and formally end a state of war on the Korean peninsula, which has persisted for almost 70 years.

Late on Monday. Trump phoned Moon from Singapore.

But the spectacle was absorbing.

Trump and Kim are staying in separate hotels in the famous Orchard Road area of Singapore, dotted with high-rise luxury apartment blocks, offices and glittering shopping malls.

As far as we know, his despot father only traveled out of the country by train, and rarely at that, because of fears of assassination.

While the main attraction of the summit will inevitably be the historic meeting between Trump and Kim, that wasn't the first world leader he met with on this trip. The fake negotiators remained out of sight as the real men hit the streets on Monday.

Lee said the cost was worthwhile.

Those points were echoed in Monday's media coverage, which stressed that the talks with Mr. Trump would be focused on forging a relationship that is more in tune with what it called changing times - most likely meaning the North's new status as a nuclear weapons state - its desire for a mechanism to ensure a lasting a durable peace on the Korean Peninsula and, finally, denuclearization. Suryeong is a Korean term meaning "supreme leader".

Ahead of his much-anticipated meeting with Kim, the US President sounded optimistic and said the meeting would be a "one-time shot" at peace.

Trump had called Kim "Little Rocket Man" and threatened to unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen" on North Korea as it conducted several ballistic missile tests in defiance of global warnings.

In the English version, the summit is sold as a chance to realise "the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era".

KCNA noted that the summit meeting is the first in history between the two countries and will be held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world".
