North Korean leader, Singapore’s PM discuss Korean Peninsula situation

US President Donald Trump smiles in front of a cake during an advanced birthday celebration at his meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the Istana ahead of a summit between North Korea and the US Singapore

Stating that the USA would not again be duped by North Korea, Pompeo said the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearization.

Kim's summit with Trump has captured intense global attention after a turn to diplomacy in recent months after serious fears of war previous year amid North Korean nuclear and missile tests.

Balakrishnan also said that the Singapore government was footing the hotel bill for Kim and his delegation who are staying at the plush St Regis hotel here. "Chairman Kim thanked Prime Minister Lee for Singapore's hosting of the US-DPRK Summit", the document adds.

Following their initial greeting, Trump and Kim will meet face-to-face without any staffers, then for an expanded meeting and a working lunch, the statement said.

North Korea, though, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule.

In a statement, the White House said Mr Trump would speak to the media before departing for the U.S. at 8:00pm.

"I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World", Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.

The move was in reaction to North Korea's criticism of U.S. vice president Mike Pence's statement that the country could meet the same fate as Libya if it failed to meet a nuclear deal with the US. In fact, North Korea merely said it would suspend nuclear and missile tests and shut down a key testing site.

The Singapore government offered itself as a neutral site for the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.

Beyond the impact on both leaders' political fortunes, the summit could shape the fate of countless people - the citizens of impoverished North Korea, the tens of millions living in the shadow of the North's nuclear threat, and millions more worldwide.

The historic first meeting between a sitting USA president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room.

"We've got a very interesting meeting. tomorrow, and I just think it's going to work out very nicely", Trump said.

Kim also stopped by the Marina Bay Sands, a hotel-casino owned by GOP donor Sheldon Adelson, CBS News reported.

US President Donald Trump, left, shakes hands with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during his visit to The Istana, the official residence of the prime minister, in Singapore on June 11, 2018.

The president has said that he would be willing to guarantee the safety of Kim's regime - though it's not clear how he would back that up. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything". "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again".
