Who will be in the room when Trump meets Kim Jong

Not only have Korean Central TV, KCNA news agency and newspaper Rodong Sinmun published reports on the trip to Singapore, they have also told North Koreans the exact objective of the visit - to meet the president of the United States.

This picture taken on June 8, 2018 shows Lee Eun-ho, a 70-year-old South Korean worker - who is critical about the Trump-Kim summit, during a street interview with AFP in Seoul.

The North Korean leader reportedly arrived at Changi Airport in Singapore Sunday afternoon, where he was met by the Minister for Foreign Affairs Vivian Balakrishnan. "Chairman Kim thanked Prime Minister Lee for Singapore's hosting of the US-DPRK Summit", the document adds.

Kim Yo Jong gained notoriety at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

In a statement, the White House said Mr Trump would speak to the media before departing for the USA at 8:00pm. And based on the tweets that Trump sent Monday morning, it doesn't seem like he left his baggage from the first summit at the door.

"The ultimate objective we seek from diplomacy with North Korea has not changed".

Mr. Pompeo praised the G-7 nations for their help getting North Korea talks set up.

In the run-up to the talks in Singapore, Trump had optimistically predicted the two men could strike a nuclear deal or forge a formal end to the Korean War in the course of a single meeting or over several days.




"And we'll see how far we get, but I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from tomorrow's meeting between these two leaders".

Although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail, Trump sounded a positive note in a lunch meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee.

Cheering crowds greeted Kim during his stroll, and cameras from North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency documented his every move.

It "would instead lay out practical steps with requisite commitments from North Korea that demonstrate that it understands, accepts and is committed to achieving denuclearisation as the United States defines it", said Enos, who is also in Singapore to watch the proceedings.

Trump in May briefly scrapped the summit with Kim, only to later reinstate the meeting after meeting withNorth Korea official Kim Yong Chol. Considering Trump has admitted that he hasn't prepared for this upcoming meeting, he will need to rely on his alleged "best negotiator" skills to get the job done.

"I can only say this", Pompeo said.

The president has said that he would be willing to guarantee the safety of Kim's regime - though it's not clear how he would back that up. "I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity".
