Singapore Offers to Pick up Kim Jong-un's Bills

Singapore Offers to Pick up Kim Jong-un's Bills

Kim and President Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday ahead of Tuesday's historic summit.

Rodman has no official role in the diplomatic efforts between his country and North Korea, but he appears to be invested in promoting positive ties between Washington and Pyongyang. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the delegations were "rapidly" making progress, but it will come down to the meeting between the two leaders.

The North Korean leader then traveled to the St. Regis Hotel - where he will be staying for the duration of the visit - in his armored limousine, which arrived on a separate flight.

What is unclear whether the summit will lead to any type of substantive outline of an agreement in which North Korea will halt its program and agree to denuclearize, and what kind of verification procedure it would accept.

He has also convinced the North Korean people that nuclear weapons are their only savior from an invasion by the U.S. But Kim, who was educated in Switzerland, has also promised to transform North Korea's economy and the lives of its people.

Still, the sense of anticipation was great in Singapore, with people lining spotless streets holding cellphones high as Trump headed to meet Lee.

Various administration Twitter feeds posted footage of Trump departing his hotel and heading to the summit with Kim on Singapore's Sentosa Island. Previous reports had suggested Trump would leave on Wednesday.

Liberal South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun sought to continue the legacy of his predecessor Kim Dae-jung by pursuing friendly relations and cooperation with the North.

He said on Thursday that he didn't think he had to prepare very much for the summit and that "it's about attitude".

In a September 2017 speech in front of the United Nations, President Trump referred to Kim as "Rocket Man" and threatened to "totally destroy North Korea", which earned a rare rebuke directly from Kim describing the president as a "frightened dog" and "mentally deranged US dotard".

Trump was hosted for a working lunch Monday by Singapore's prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong, at the Istana, which is the official residence of the city state's president.

The summit will be held at a hotel on Sentosa, a popular tourist island a few hundred metres off the Singapore mainland, at 09:00 local time (1pm NZT).

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile program that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States.

Pompeo told reporters the event should set the framework for "the hard work that will follow", insisting that North Korea had to move towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.

Trump advisers cast his actions as a show of strength before the Kim meeting. North Korea admitted to enriching uranium in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which it subsequently withdrew from in 2003. Delegates were outlining specific goals for what the leaders should try to accomplish and multiple scenarios for resolving key issues, a senior U.S official said, adding that the meetings were also an ice breaker of sorts, allowing the teams to get better acquainted after decades of minimal contact between their nations.

He went out of his way to be cordial during two summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April and May.
