Dennis Rodman to Travel to Singapore for North Korea Summit


Its state-run media are reporting extensively on Mr Kim's arrival in Singapore, with KCNA publishing three reports detailing his departure from Pyongyang, arrival in Singapore and meeting with Singaporean Premier Lee Hsien Loong.

So you can only imagine how much Singapore is paying to have the North Korean leader and an entire army of bodyguards and government officials at the St. Regis.

They also mention the goal of his trip, a "historic first meeting with the U.S. president", describing not only Mr Kim's itinerary but also the fact that he used a Chinese plane to fly to Singapore, rather than his own personal jet.

"The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected", the White House said in a statement. That means giving up its nuclear arsenal - and its ability to produce or procure more nuclear weapons - permanently.

"While a summit between Trump and Kim would be historic, it is unlikely to be decisive".

North Korean leaders, who have been subject to some of the world's toughest ever sanctions, have long wanted to meet with the US president, in part because of the global legitimacy such a summit would provide.

'Cheating Every Time' North Korea has previously promised to denuclearize, only to continue its nuclear program after receiving concessions from the U.S., said Michael J. Green, senior vice president for Asia and Japan Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The summit - the first ever between a sitting American president and North Korea's leader - was to kick off at 9 a.m., the White House said.

As anticipation for his historic summit with North Korea has ratcheted up, salesman in chief Donald Trump has done something out of character: ratcheted expectations down.

There was no word on how Trump was spending the night before the summit.

Stating that the USA would not again be duped by North Korea, Pompeo said the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearization.

Trump arrived on Sunday evening at the island city-state's Paya Lebar Air Base after traveling from Canada, where he attended a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized nations.

North Korea is reclusive, totalitarian and to most of the world, a pariah state.

North Korea, though, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule. A large limousine with a North Korean flag was surrounded by other black vehicles with tinted window as it sped through the city's streets.

Kim arrived in a Air China 747 that touched down at Changi Airport on Sunday afternoon, Singapore's Straits Times said.

While en route to Singapore, Trump said he looked forward to meeting Kim on what he anticipated would be an exciting day.

Trump has said that North Korea must decide to "denuke" or there will be no deal and economic pressure on the regime would only intensify.

"The one thing about having President Donald J. Trump in this room with this young man", he said, "who has done more negotiations than the days this man has been on the earth - so this is nothing new to President Trump".
