In eye of storm, scant news of Trump summit in North Korea

Trump, Kim arrive in Singapore ahead of high-stakes summit

President Trump arrives in Singapore for meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meets with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Istana or presidential palace on Sunday in Singapore.

On the same day, the North Korean leader is likely to land at Changi Airport, a civilian facility at the eastern end of Singapore, after about seven hours of flight from Pyongyang, according to media reports.

Dressed in identical in black suits, with lapel badges of former North Korean leaders, the two, flanked by Singapore police, were busy getting into the best position for Kim's arrival, setting up cameras in the middle of the cordoned-off road.

Trump flew into Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base on Sunday aboard Air Force One.

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. 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.

The pair are now both in Singapore where the meeting will take place. "North Korea summit again", said Shim Nu-ri, a teacher who lives in Seoul.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Sung Kim, the US ambassador to the Philippines who has taken the lead on policy negotiations with the North, will hold a "working group" with a North Korean delegation to discuss final preparations for the meeting.

Word does get around, however, and the prospect of a meeting between Kim and Trump had already been on the public's radar.

Trump's efforts to make peace with a country that is still technically at war with the United States received backing from his fellow G7 members in a joint statement issued after the USA president's departure. "We look forward to seeing you, and we look forward to the summit, and hopefully, some wonderful things will work out" So it was really very warm, very nice.

Singapore has diplomatic relations with both North Korea and the US.

Ms Giguere said: "Given the two leaders' much-publicised history of animosity, making a good first impression in this case might be extremely hard".

Unlike traditional summits between heads of state, where most of the work is completed in advance, US officials say the only thing certain ahead of these talks will be their unpredictability.

It's unclear what Trump and Kim might decide Tuesday.

Even if brief, the meeting could potentially be the start of a broader dialogue between Trump and Kim. Kim also released a statement in September that said he will "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

The fighting ended on July 27, 1953, but the war technically continues today because instead of a difficult-to-negotiate peace treaty, military officers for the USA -led United Nations, North Korea and China signed an armistice that halted the fighting.

But critics have warned that the meeting risks being largely light on substance considering what is believed to be a wide gap between the USA and the North on the denuclearization issue.

Singapore City then sold 587 units in May, more than quadruple the number in April, making it the top-selling development in the area, he said. And yet denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, how to define it, what verification might look like, over what timescale it should unfold, in return for what level of United States economic aid and security guarantees and the lifting of what sanctions - and, and, and - is pretty head-scratching, complex stuff.
