Historic summit: Countdown on for Trump and Kim meeting

Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un arrive in Singapore for historic summit

Kim is to meet Trump on Tuesday morning to discuss the future of his nuclear program.

Trump is expected to greet Kim at 9 a.m. local time Tuesday in Singapore and 9 p.m. ET Monday in the U.S. They are then scheduled for a one-on-one meeting, which could last up to two hours.

It will be the first time a sitting USA president has met with a North Korean leader.

In his latest tweet, hours before the summit was due to begin, Mr Trump said meetings between the two sides' officials were "going well and quickly". In March, Mr Trump shocked the world by accepting an invitation from Mr Kim to meet in person.

The meetings also served as an ice breaker of sorts as the teams worked to get better acquainted after decades of minimal US-North Korea contact.

Mr Balakrishnan confirmed that Singapore was paying for the North Korean delegation's stay, describing it as "hospitality that we would have offered". More recently, Trump has suggested he will raise human rights issues with Kim.

Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire USA mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the U.S. and the North.

The lawmakers also stressed that while they "stand ready" to support any progress made at the talks, they will "vehemently oppose" a return to military threats should the talks break down. "Chairman Kim thanked Prime Minister Lee for Singapore's hosting of the US-DPRK Summit", the document adds. After the meeting, this could make it hard to verify what's said and whether any promises were made. "The leader's excretions contain information about his health status so they can't be left behind", Yun-keol said.

"It should go fairly well, but people should not expect so much for the first time", Rodman told reporters at the airport.

He's also repeatedly expressed his support for a meeting between Trump and Kim - even offering to facilitate it or serve as an ambassador of sorts. Trump on Monday forecast a "nice" outcome, while Kim spent the day out of view.

Trudeau held a press conference after the president departed for Singapore and said that his country will not be "pushed around" by America.

Pompeo, who led the outreach as Central Intelligence Agency director, traveled twice to North Korea for preliminary talks. However, he took a U-turn soon and said the White House was proceeding with the preparations for the summit.

Trump's supporters have floated the idea that forging such a treaty, which would need a signoff from China and South Korea, would deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
