  • President Donald Trump arrives at Paya Lebar Air Base for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Sunday

After months of nuclear taunts, sports diplomacy and a rollercoaster of a will-they-or-won't-they tango, it all comes down to this: President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: "Excitement in the air" ahead of Kim meeting Trump doubles down on criticism of EU, Canada Merkel: EU will retaliate against Trump tariffs MORE will meet face-to-face with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday.

North Koreans were offered a rare glimpse into their reclusive leader's schedule on Monday after the tightly controlled state media issued surprisingly detailed reports of his trip to Singapore.

He's also repeatedly expressed his support for a meeting between Trump and Kim - even offering to facilitate it or serve as an ambassador of sorts. He said that those talks "in fact are moving quite rapidly and will come to a logical conclusion more quickly than anticipated".

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

Donald Trump is promising big things can happen to the North Korean economy in return for moving away from its nuclear programme. She said the USA delegation would be led by Sung Kim, a veteran diplomat who recently held talks with North Korean officials.

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

Mr Lee is slated to meet Mr Trump today at the Istana.The US President arrived in Singapore last night aboard Air Force One, which landed at Paya Lebar Airbase.

"North Korea's increased dialogue with other countries is a positive step, but before the world gets too excited they should remember that Kim Jong Un still presides over perhaps the most repressive system in the world", he said.

"The entire world is focusing on the historic summit between the DPRK and the United States, and thanks to your honest efforts. we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Mr Kim told Mr Lee through an interpreter.

But even those vested in Canadian trade are not expected to come to Trudeau's defence as long as the USA economy is roaring. Kudlow said the USA participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on Nafta in good faith and that Trump had been "charming".


But rather than burn Trump and the United States on a bad deal for short-term benefits, Kim may actually look to embrace the United States to balance against China.

Choi's fiery outburst at Trump's national security advisor John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence had a fortnight ago been blamed for Trump suddenly, and briefly, cancelling the summit.

He also thanked his Singapore hosts for their hospitality.

North Korea said Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump will discuss "denuclearization" and "durable peace" on the Korean peninsula during their upcoming summit.

Concrete barricades have been erected outside St Regis Singapore hotel which is within the zoned security area. He described it as a "get to know you plus" meeting.

In Singapore, the island city-state hosting the summit, the sense of anticipation was palpable, with people lining spotless streets Monday waving cell phones as Trump headed to meet Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

He added that the expenditure forms part of the S$20 million that Singapore is spending on the summit in all.

The North has faced diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

But there are doubts denuclearisation of North Korea is achievable in the short term. "It's a one-time shot", he said at a press conference, adding that the North Koreans had been working "very well with us".
