Trump-Kim summit: What to expect when the U.S., North Korean leaders come face to face

Kim said that it is obvious to North Koreans that the government of Kim Jong Un is lying to the people about the country's situation and its reality.

A peace treaty, which is a legal agreement between sovereign states, could also cause problems for South Korea, whose constitution doesn't recognize the North as a legitimate government and remains dedicated to the unification of the peninsula under Seoul's rule. I'd like to accomplish more than that, but at a minimum we'll have met each other, seen each other.

"Even if he tried to couch it in terms of South Korea not paying the bills, which is nonsense, I just think it would make him look weak", Hill said.

In late April, 12 lanky male bodyguards made global headlines after they surrounded Kim Jong Un's Mercedes-Benz vehicle and jogged alongside it whenever the North Korean leader moved across the border.

In a New Year's address, Kim said his country had completed development of its nuclear programme and would focus on economic development, suggesting a meeting with South Korea. May not. But I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not in my opinion something positive will happen. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly....

Many remain sceptical Kim will ever completely abandon his nuclear programmes.

Hundreds of North Korean security experts have no doubt been up nights wondering how to safeguard Kim Jong Un since Trump shocked the world by accepting the North's invitation to meet.

Kim is due to meet Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong later on Sunday, Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. "He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great".

He said he would know within a minute whether something good would come out of the summit.

"The situation was much more shocking than I had expected", he said.

One benefit of Singapore from the North Korean point of view is that there will probably not be any anti-North Korea protests during Kim's stay.

At the same time, the U.S. president thinks that Kim Jong-un can make North Korea great.

It's never going to be there again.

The 65-year-old wants reunification to be his legacy and was elected in part on the promise of taking South Korea in that direction.

He added: "I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast".

President Trump "is willing to do something big, something bold".

"I have a clear objective, but I have to say - it's going to be something that will always be spur of the moment".

Tuesday will mark the first time a sitting US president and a North Korean leader meet, though it's unclear what a nuclear deal with the isolated country will look like.

During a promotional event, dubbed the "real" Trump-Kim summit, the men waved at shoppers as they walked through the crowded Bugis Junction mall.

South Korea and China, rattled by the ratcheting tensions, signed on to tougher and more restrictive USA -led sanctions. "It has to know that its people can eat and that they can have the wealth that the North Korean people so richly deserve", he told Japanese broadcaster NHK.
