Trump set to meet with Kim one-on-one, sets early departure

The top U.S. and North Korean negotiators held a last-ditch meeting in Singapore on Monday to try to narrow the gap between the two sides on what denuclearisation by North Korea should look like.

No sitting United States president has ever met a North Korean leader.

Immediately after the summit, Trump is due to give an interview to Fox New commentator, Sean Hannity, the president's most fervent supporter in the media.

"If diplomacy doesn't move in the right direction, sanctions will increase", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says.

The historic handshake between Trump and Kim is to occur Tuesday on the 12-hectare grounds of the luxurious Capella Hotel on Singapore's resort island of Sentosa.

Heavy security and armed police are standing guard at summit-related venues across the city state.

Drama surrounding the event heightened in the hours before the leaders greeted each other, as the two sides shifted their schedules.

Singapore has estimated it will spend around SGD $20m for this summit, with businesses and brands doing their best to jump on the publicity.

He continued: "But in the end, that doesn't matter".

"I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast.it may not".

While the bathrooms are marble-lined and well-appointed, Kim will not be taking advantage of the facilities, as he reportedly brought his own toilet.

He smiled and waved to excited crowds and was accompanied by Singapore's foreign minister, who tweeted a selfie standing next to him.

"In the 18 years I have worked on [North Korea], the ongoing debate between the United States and North Korea was essentially this - U.S.: change your behaviour and we can be friends", Walsh said. "We will be fine!" he wrote.

New details of the agenda have been released. Previous reports had suggested Trump would leave on Wednesday.

"They have to de-nuke".

The meeting between Kim and Trump will mark a turnaround of relations between the two leaders after a long-running exchange of furious threats and insults.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday drew a firm line, saying the USA plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.

The combatants of the 1950-53 Korean War are technically still at war, as the conflict, in which millions of people died, was concluded only with a truce.

"Trump" and "Kim" also signed a peace treaty on the crab shells.

How did we get here?

He travelled to North Korea to visit the dictator in May.

Mr Trump famously vowed to unleash "fire and fury" if Pyongyang kept threatening the US.

In a choice that seems to make light of a lot of really quite serious things at once, Twitter is promoting its new #TrumpKimSummit emoji for Tuesday's summit in Singapore. The meeting was initially meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, but the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know-you session.

It is also unclear whether USA officials will raise human rights issues in meetings with the North Koreans. The president wants the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of his nuclear weapons program.

Kim says through an interpreter that it "was not easy to get here" and that there "were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

North Korean vice minister of foreign affairs Choi Sun-hee (third from left) arrives at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Singapore to continue talks with the American ambassador to the Philippines, Sung Kim. The ensuing recognition as a "normal country" could then allow sanctions relief, and later global aid and investment.

Still, the U.S. is not expecting a final deal in Singapore.

White House officials have said Rodman will play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations.

Rodman said he hopes to surprise his friend Kim with his appearance during the summit.
