Dennis Rodman arrives In Singapore

US President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday to join North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a historic summit which could lay the groundwork for ending a nuclear stand-off between the two countries and see Pyongyang dismantle its arsenal in return for economic help and security guarantees. "Prime Minister Lee complimented the bold and admirable decision by Chairman Kim and President of the United States Donald Trump to come together for this Summit".

They also revealed who would be in the room for Tuesday's highly anticipated Trump-Kim summit in Singapore.

But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang.

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.

Regardless, Trump seemed determined to keep his meeting with Kim low-key, dangling the possibility of a future summit in the USA if things go well this week.

He has said the talks would be more about starting a relationship with Kim for a negotiating process that would take more than one summit.

Olivia Enos, policy analyst with the Asian Studies Center at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, said "a successful summit would move beyond mere statements about denuclearisation".

Pompeo also said that Trump had called Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean president Moon Jae-in.

Preliminary meetings have already begun. The article also stresses the need for confidentiality - meaning Trump will have to resist tweeting the minutes of the meeting.

Other young South Koreans said they were too preoccupied with their search for work to pay attention to diplomacy.

I mean, we have India, where some of the tariffs are 100 per cent. "Without question, we need to remain in talks with the USA". Reneging on the commitments agreed in the communique showed "incoherence and inconsistency", it said in a statement .

"Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels", Lee Yun-keol, a former member of a North Korean Guard Command unit who defected, told The Washington Post.

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 minimize expectations, saying additional meetings may be necessary.

Still, some Singaporeans are getting into the swing of things.

Kim has shown surprising diplomatic skills in his meetings with overseas leaders this year.

The president arrived in Asia having blown up relations with US allies - and personally with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - over trade and Russian Federation, announcing via Twitter en route to Singapore that he'd withdraw from a joint agreement covering climate change and other issues.

It is no easy task.

"I think the North will denuclearise ... because it knows it has no other alternatives", he said. Forging a peace treaty involving South Korea may be another topic of the Trump-Kim meeting. Trump had previously said the talks might extend beyond the first day.

"Just my touch, my feel", Trump replied.

Citizens are traditionally told - pretty much from birth - that the United States and former colonial power Japan are the great enemies of the people of the Korean peninsula.
