Negotiators scramble to put something together for Trump and Kim

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim jong

Trump and his entourage met the Singaporean prime minister for lunch on Monday.

As Kim's black Mercedes arrived at the St Regis hotel in downtown Singapore, it was flanked by bodyguards in identical black suits jogging alongside the auto.

The latest indication of Beijing's influence over Pyongyang came on Sunday, when Kim arrived in Singapore for the summit not aboard the North Korea Air Force Un, as it is known - a Soviet-made Ilyushin Il-62M jet - but on an Air China Boeing 747 sometimes used to transport Chinese leaders.

The summit is a plus for Singapore, he added.

A dictator who until March had not even visited his closest neighbour and ally China, now being treated not as an worldwide pariah but a global statesman on the same level as the United States president.

Just meeting with Trump will also give Kim recognition as the leader of a "normal" country and as an equal of the United States leader.

Trump insisted last week that the summit would "not be just a photo op", saying it would help forge a "good relationship" that would lead to a "process" towards the "ultimate making of a deal". -North Korea summit will take place on June 12.

The war of words between Mr. Trump and Kim has died down.

.

Sporadic provocations by the North have continued while Pyongyang has made increasing advances in its nuclear arsenal, which it says it needs to defend against the risk of a U.S. invasion. The North Korean leadership, including Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son Hui has also taunted Washington, calling Vice President Mike Pence a "political dummy".

The high-anticipated talks had been put at risk, when, on May 24, Trump announced he was canceling the meeting with Kim over Pyongyang's hostile rhetoric.

Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he met with other world leaders whose countries make up the Group of Seven.

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

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Sunday that Trump's public show of frustration with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other allies was part of a larger plan.

Many gathered at Bugis Junction mall, some with their smartphones raised, hoping to get a glimpse of the Kim Jong Un impersonator, who goes by his stage name of Howard X, and his partner, Donald Trump lookalike Dennis Alan, 64. "I just, my touch, my feel, that's what, that's what I do". "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again".

"He would be there, he would be running his country, his country would be very rich", Trump said in May, noting that Libya "was a much different model" and not applicable in this case.

"I think the entire world, as we do, prays for the success of this effort", Netanyahu said. Create peace and great prosperity for his land. "It's a one-time shot", he said at a press conference, adding that the North Koreans had been working "very well with us".

Mr Kim's summit with Mr Trump has captured intense global attention after a turn to diplomacy in recent months replaced, for the time being, serious fears of war past year amid North Korean nuclear and missile tests.

Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both sides.
