Washington hopes the summit will kick-start a process that eventually sees Kim give up his nuclear weapons, read the BBC report, adding that the USA wants North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons in an irreversible manner that can be verified internationally.

A plane presumably carrying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has arrived in Singapore ahead of Kim's summit Tuesday with President Donald Trump.

Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get USA troops off the Korean Peninsula and, eventually, pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea.

He added that the summit is an opportunity to "show what Singapore can do" and expressed confidence that it would bring positive publicity to the country.

For Trump, a successful summit will give him a win on the worldwide stage.

Singapore suspended all trade with North Korea in November 2017, joining a list of nations to cut its economic links with the nuclear-armed state in line with the toughened UN security council sanctions. She said the United States delegation would be led by Sung Kim, a veteran diplomat who recently held talks with North Korean officials.

Hong Kong-based impersonator Howard X, who has attracted worldwide attention in recent months for his impression of Kim, appeared on stage with Trump lookalike Dennis Alan.

President Donald Trump meets with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan in the Oval Office of the White House, in Washington, June 7. He tweets: "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" "I don't think I have to prepare very much".

If nothing else, the process leading up to this meeting seems to have caused Kim to open up slightly, with, for example, the participation of North Koreans at the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Seeing Nobel Peace Prize laurels and eyeing potential to show up his critics at home and overseas, Trump is granting Kim the worldwide legitimacy he's long sought in hopes of securing a legacy-defining accord. "Therefore, when the two sides asked us to host the meeting, we can not say no". Iran did not have nuclear weapons.

The fighting ended on 27 July, 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.

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.

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile programme that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States, insisting he would swiftly achieve what previous U.S. administrations have failed to do.

"Kim Jong Un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it", Giuliani told an audience in Tel Aviv, "which is exactly the position you want to put him in". Trump played the triumphant role Kim was writing for him, seemingly unaware North Korea would expect a reciprocal peace gesture from the USA when he sat down with Kim, if not before. -South Korean military exercises and US comments that the North should follow the "Libya model" of denuclearization by eliminating everything upfront.

North Korean defector Kim Young-il is the 39-year-old founder of People for Successful Corean Reunification (PSCORE).
