Trump, Kim confident but body language reveals nerves at first meeting

Kim Jong Un visits The Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore

The South Korean government is hoping for a success of the Singapore summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, since it could lead to peace on the peninsula after nearly 70 years.

The president's tweets followed Sunday show appearances by his top economic aides Sunday who assailed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for comments he made in a press conference following the president's early departure from the G-7 summit.

The president is now in Singapore, just hours away from his historic meeting with Kim.

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 also made a stop at the worldwide media centre at the F1 Pit Building, which will be the base for the thousands of journalists in town to cover the meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Kim.

"It's hospitality that we would have offered them, and as Chairman Kim said yesterday, he would have liked to have come to Singapore anyway, with or without the summit", Dr Balakrishnan said in an interview with the BBC.

The event-specific symbol features what appears to be a high-five between a hand representing the USA president and one representing the North Korean dictator known for executing his political enemies and exiling large swaths of his nation to prison camps, where they face starvation and torture.

Last week, Mr Trump told reporters that Rodman had not been invited to the summit, but praised him as a "nice guy" and great rebounder.

Both leaders emerged from a bilateral meeting and signed a joint statement.

It is the first time a sitting U.S. president has ever met a North Korean leader.

Both sides were finalizing preparations for the unprecedented summit, which was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake between Trump and Kim, an image sure to be devoured around the world. The North Korean approach, he added was: "Let's be friends (ie, change the relationship), and then we will change our behaviour".

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.

The talks - unimaginable just a few months ago - will focus on North Korea's controversial nuclear programme.

Mr Lee also wished Mr Kim success for the summit, and expresssd the hope that it would help along prospects for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and the wider region. The U.S. president turns 72 on June 14.
