North Korean leader Kim, Trump both arrive in Singapore ahead of summit

It heralded the summit as part of a "changed era".

"People call it a historic summit but.it is important to understand that this summit was available to any USA president who wanted to do it and the point is no US president wanted to do this, and for good reasons", said Christopher Hill, a former lead US nuclear negotiator with North Korea.

Pompeo won't say whether Trump would consider withdrawing US troops from the Korean Peninsula.

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. They believe Kim's latest engagement is aimed at getting the United States to ease the crippling sanctions that have squeezed the impoverished country.

Mr Pompeo, Donald Trump's top diplomat, said that the president was fully prepared for his meeting with Kim Jong-un.

"Even the Agreed Framework, we knew it failed in 2002 for sure, but for a long time we thought it was successful", Terry said.

Most observers predicted that the outcome would be a short and vague statement build around the ambiguous aim of the "denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" leaving it to later bilateral meetings to negotiate what that would mean in practice.

The meeting lasted more than two hours and took place at the Ritz Carlton.

"Maybe we'll start with the White House, what do you think?" he said when asked if Kim would be invited to Washington or his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

After more than a day's silence on Twitter, Trump posted four tweets about trade disagreements that were the talk of the G-7 conference, followed by a quick mention of the summit he is now attending - writing "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!" - before turning back to tweeting about trade once more. However, the South Carolina Republican noted that he is "not here to spread democracy" or to unite the North with South Korea.

The other area was Sentosa Island, site of the Capella Hotel which will be the venue for the June 12 summit. Lee has said the summit would cost Singapore about 20 million Singapore dollars ($15 million), more than half of which would go on security. "And then we'll find out later that, obviously, we didn't get there in terms of, you know, our goal, which is complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement of their program".

"We have had substantive and detailed meetings to date, including this morning with the North Koreans", he said. However, he took a U-turn soon and said the White House was proceeding with the preparations for the summit.

OptimistsLee Hye-ji, a 31-year-old housewife, was "hopeful" about the Trump-Kim meeting, adding she was less interested in denuclearisation than a declaration that the Korean War was over, 65 years after hostilities stopped with a ceasefire rather than a peace treaty.

Trump canceled the meeting, but chose to move ahead with it a week later after a visit to Washington by a top North Korean official.

Donald Trump has sat down for lunch with his Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Kim arrived at Singapore's Changi Airport after his longest trip overseas as head of state, wearing his trademark dark "Mao suit" and distinctive high-cut hairstyle. He has not left his country since taking office in 2011 other than to visit China and the South Korean side of the Demilitarised Zone on the border.
