Trump arrives in Singapore ahead of unprecedented US-North Korea summit

Trump, Kim arrive in Singapore ahead of high-stakes summit President Trump arrives in Singapore for meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un
Russell Knight | 11 June, 2018, 07:18

The agency revealed that Kim flew in on a Chinese plane, provided for his "personal use", accompanied by a host of senior officials, including his influential sister, Kim Yo-jong. Kim is scheduled to begin a summit Tuesday with President Trump.

Trump is to meet Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday while Kim has no official agenda.

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.

There are worries from some quarters about Kim's intentions and his willingness to actually follow through on any commitment he might make in Singapore.

"From our point of view it's important that the meeting take place, and that the meeting sets developments on a new trajectory - one that will be conducive to the security and stability of the region". Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement ending the Korean War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty.

Rubio, who applauded Trump's now-reversed decision to cancel the summit, said at the time that it was apparent that Kim's goal "was either to gain sanctions relief in exchange for nothing or to collapse worldwide sanctions by making the us appear to be the unreasonable party".

Trump, who is staying in a separate hotel, the Shangri-La, is due to meet Lee on Monday.

President Donald Trump doesn't want to hear anything inappropriate coming out of his White House and administration, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

The suspension applies to delegates importing or exporting goods for the objective of the preparations or conduct of the summit meeting.

Obviously, one reason for Kim accepting the invitation is a chance at easing the dire economic situation in North Korea.

A Hong Kong-based entertainer who impersonates the North Korean leader said he was detained at Changi Airport after returning to Singapore ahead of the historic summit planned for Tuesday.

Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get United States troops off the Korean Peninsula and, eventually, pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea. The truth is Trump needs success in these talks more than Kim does because Trump has already claimed success on the basis of Kim's offer to denuclearise.

"We would win that war thousand times out of a thousand", he said.

Hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Washington, Trump tried to quell concerns about his lack of diplomatic or foreign policy experience heading into the high-stakes talks.

There are also signs that South Korea, China and Russian Federation are preparing to increase economic ties with North Korea, should a nuclear deal be reached.

Images propagated by state media help build Kim Jong Un's legitimacy and glorify his status.

"I think we can presume that North Korea made more demands to Singapore than the United States did in terms of security". At the G7 summit in Canada and in the hours afterward, Trump railed against trade practices that he described as unfair and said he'd given US representatives instructions to rescind an agreement to official communique that outlined a mutual plan to ensure "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade".

Though the White House has not released an official list of topics for the meeting, it is expected that the question of North Korea's denuclearization will be at the forefront of the discussions.
