  • Singapore pays for Kim Jong Un’s hotel during Trump summit

Choe, a vice foreign minister, is the highest-level female diplomat in North Korea. It has the bomb. North Korea also wants an end to what it considers America's "hostile policy" and a security guarantee that the US will not seek to remove the regime.

We'll bring you the news as the day unfolds.

A global Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) was opened for signature on September 24, 1996.

Some observers insist that it's the beginning of the complete denuclearisation of North Korea.

Trump's one-on-one meeting with Kim kicks off the first ever summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

When Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the worldwide media center for the summit at F1 Pit Building on Sunday, he said it will cost the city state "around 20 million Singaporean dollars" (W16.1 billion, US$1=W1,078) to host the "historic summit".

He is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city Pyongyang.

Staffers must tape back together presidential records Trump rips up, report says
Long before he became president, Donald Trump existed in a world where rules typically didn't apply to him. Trump's system is a stark contrast to the Obama White House, which ran a structured paperwork process.


Trump will also speak with reporters in Singapore before departing for home.

The North Korean motorcade, believed to be carrying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, travels along Singapore's Orchard Road, June 10, 2018, ahead of the summit with United States leader Donald Trump. Trump descended from Air Force One into the steamy Singapore night, greeting officials and declaring he felt "very good" before being whisked away to his hotel via a route lined with police and photo-snapping onlookers. It's where former Chinese President Hu Jin Tao stayed during the 2009 APEC Summit (and don't tell Trump, but Hillary Clinton stayed there in 2011, too).

- Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are ready to shake hands, sit down face-to-face and.do what exactly? Pompeo held firm to Trump's position that sanctions will remain in place until North Korea denuclearizes - and said they would even increase if diplomatic discussions did not progress positively.

The US and North Korean leaders will meet alone with translators at 9am local time, have a joint meeting with advisors, and then they'll all lunch together with their teams, the White House said, adding that discussions are "ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected". Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying more than one meeting may be necessary.

Trump said Tuesday after meeting Kim that he's feeling "really great".

Trump has said he wants to strike a deal to get the North to give up its nuclear weapons.

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile program that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States.
