Trump, Kim arrive in Singapore ahead of high-stakes summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meets with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Istana or presidential palace on Sunday in Singapore.

The file, which according to Axios was pieced together after extensive interviews with teachers, students and others who had contact with him at a prestigious Swiss boarding school, shows a young Kim Jong Un as a boy prone to violence, gluttony and considering others as slaves.

In the historic meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) on April 27, the North Korean leader was seen heading back to the northern side of the border for lunch session and was accompanied by 12 running bodyguards beside Kim's black limousine vehicle.

Trump descended from Air Force One into the steamy Singapore night, greeting officials and declaring he felt "very good", before he was whisked away to his hotel, driving along a route lined with police and photo-snapping onlookers.

Despite Kim's apparent eagerness for a summit with Trump, there are doubts that he would fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as the guarantor of his survival.

Donald Trump has not held back in his dealings with North Korea but a body language expert has warned him to avoid some cultural blunders during Tuesday's summit.

Trump and other top US officials have promised a "bright future" for the North if it quickly relinquishes its nuclear weapons - including economic inducements and a security agreement. She said the us delegation would be led by Sung Kim, a veteran diplomat who recently held talks with North Korean officials.

Menendez spoke Sunday on ABC's "This Week" as President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's talks with Kim. "And if we're not willing to do that, we're not going to get a good deal", Graham said, complementing the global community - including China and Russian Federation - for standing behind Trump in regards to sanctions on North Korea. "From that time onwards we started selling 30-40 units a day", he told Reuters in an interview at the project's showroom, decorated with water-spouting statues of Singapore's unofficial mascot, the mythical Merlion.

At a press conference earlier on Sunday, Loong said that the summit cost approximately $20 million, which is a price the Singapore was "willing to pay".

May 24: A senior North Korean diplomat calls U.S. Vice President Mike Pence a "political dummy" for his comments on the North and says it is up to the Americans whether they "meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at (a) nuclear-to-nuclear showdown". The truth is Trump needs success in these talks more than Kim does because Trump has already claimed success on the basis of Kim's offer to denuclearise. "We're going to have to see what happens". The South Korean president says the "fate and the future of the Korean Peninsula hinge" on the meeting in Singapore.

"That's why I feel positive, because it makes so much sense". Trump and Kim Jong-Un have both suggested they could also pursue a peace treaty to officially end the Korean War, which ceased because of an armistice signed in 1953. Unlike traditional summits between heads of state, where most of the work is completed in advance of a photo-op, USA officials say the only thing certain ahead of these talks will be their unpredictability.

"We will not let that problem stand, and the only alternative is to sit down and come up with an agreement and also make it such that there is an incentive for North Korea to do that", she said.

"We are the ones who have been talking about putting it on the table", he said. Saying he has a "clear objective in mind" to convince Kim to abandon his nuclear program in exchange for unspecified "protections" from the U.S., Trump acknowledged that the direction of the high-stakes meeting is unpredictable, adding it "will always be spur of the moment".
