President Trump arrives in Singapore for historic summit

President Trump arrives in Singapore for historic summit

But the South's Winter Olympics in February catalysed a flurry of diplomatic moves as Seoul's dovish leader Moon Jae-in sought to bring the two sides together.

A dispatch by the state-run Korean Central News Agency says Kim and Trump will exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing a new relationship, the issue of building a "permanent and durable peace mechanism" and realizing the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The behaviour of the two cameramen, and of North Korean security guards who accosted tourists taking photos, offered a glimpse into how isolated, tightly regimented North Korea works.

"I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World", Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.

"Certainly, if it goes well", Trump said Thursday when asked if he would invite the North Korean leader to the U.S".

President Donald Trump arrives in Singapore Sunday for a highly touted summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I think that Trump, Kim, and Moon is the ideal combination - this meeting would not have happened with Hilary Clinton, or Park Geun-hye".

Travelling with him were top officials including foreign minister Ri Yong Ho, defence minister No Kwang Chol and Kim Yong Chol, a close aide who has been instrumental in the diplomacy that culminated in Tuesday's summit. Even more remarkably, during his first year in office Trump very publicly sparred with Kim (calling him "the little Rocket Man" and a "madman") and threatening Pyongyang with "fire and fury", while the Korean leader replied in kind, describing Trump as "senile" and saying that any conflict between the two countries would end "in the biggest disaster" for the US.

USA and North Korean officials are set to meet Monday morning in Singapore to make final preparations for Tuesday's meeting.

Trump said at the least, he hoped the meeting would start a dialogue and a direct understanding between himself and the reclusive leader of North Korea.

The bodyguards made headlines in April when video emerged of them sprinting next to the leader's vehicle during a landmark meeting with South Korea.

Trump told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo he had no intention of changing any of the US policies on North Korea but he "needed to give North Korea room to negotiate", sources told The Journal.

Abe jetted into Washington hoping to ensure a decades-old tough united front on North Korea is not swept away by the history of the moment. It will also monitor whether, as part of an agreement, North Korea shares sensitive information it has on Iran that could later be used against it.

"I appreciated it very much, and nothing other than".

It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

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.

January 9: North and South Korean officials meet at a border village and agree on North Korea sending athletes and delegates to the Winter Olympics in the South. Hundreds of North Koreans go to the Pyeongchang Games in February, including Kim's sister, who conveys her brother's desire for an inter-Korean summit with South Korea's president.
