One-on-one meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un causes problems

Journalists waited outside the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore on Monday where North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is staying before the summit

Dr Balakrishnan and Education Minister Ong Ye Kung, who was also on hand to greet the North Korean leader at the airport, along with Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Defence Maliki Osman and Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information as well as Culture, Community and Youth Sim Ann, were at the Istana when Mr Kim met Mr Lee.

Trump will also speak with reporters in Singapore before departing for home.

Pompeo on Monday drew a firm line, saying the US plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.

However, it now appears that the U.S.is confident tings are going smoothly.

Weeks later, more insults followed.

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington tomorrow morning after spending today with Kim in Singapore, but on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8pm today after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

Trump is hoping to make a legacy-defining deal that some say could earn him a Nobel Peace Prize.

Trump's retort included mention of his own "nuclear button" - one that doesn't actually exist.

Several hours later, camera crews captured Kim and his entourage entering another luxury hotel on the island: the Marina Bay Sands - a 55-floor hotel and entertainment mecca with an infinity pool, lookout point, and the Ce La Vi bar and restaurant on the rooftop. "I believe this is a good prelude for peace".

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump shook hands once again ahead of a private meeting with only their translators present.

Details were not shared about how the discussions have progressed so far and Trump and Kim have yet to meet face-to-face.

Before Mr. Trump stepped up to the podium on Tuesday, the gathered media were shown a promotional video, first in Korean and then in English, touting the rapidly unfurling diplomatic process between the Kim regime and South Korea and the U.S. The narration and images portrayed the tension which had manifested over the course of the previous year, with missile launches and military maneuvers, but then shifted its focus to the future, saying "the light of hope can burn bright".

Pompeo added the U.S.is "hopeful" the summit will "set the conditions for future productive talks".

He 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. "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction- and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so- those measures will increase".

Officials of the two sides held last-minute talks to lay the groundwork for the summit of the old foes, an event nearly unthinkable just months ago, when they were exchanging insults and threats that raised fears of war.

Trump is sounding optimistic about his ability to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program after a lengthy one-on-one meeting with leader Kim Jong Un.
