'Don't expect too much': Rodman plays down Kim-Trump breakthrough

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

As the site for their meeting, the two leaders have chosen one of Singapore's most luxurious hotels, the Capella Resort on Sentosa Island, a popular vacation spot off the southern tip of Singapore and home to Universal Studios Singapore. By sitting down with an American president - a longtime goal of North Korea's government - Kim's regime is advancing its effort to establish its "reputation, respect, and credibility as a nuclear weapon state", Green said.

Trump, speaking in Canada on Saturday, said any agreement at the summit would be "spur of the moment", underscoring the uncertain outcome of what he called a "mission of peace".

Another Pyongyang report quoting Kim Yong-nam, the nominal head of state, as telling leader Kim to achieve outstanding outcomes from the summit with the USA has also drawn attention. Pyongyang's weapons program benefits from forced labor.

He said if diplomacy fails to move in the right direction, the sanctions "will increase". "We're not going to go in and sign something on June 12, and we never were".

The US says its discussions with North Korea are moving "more quickly than expected" ahead of the summit in Singapore. He had earlier been scheduled to leave on Wednesday.

Singapore's foreign minister Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted a selfie with Kim on the surprise walkabout late Monday.

The city-state of 5.5 million serves as neutral turf for both sides, since it has security partnerships with the US, a North Korean embassy and strong ties with China.

On the way back to his hotel, Kim walked along a promenade near the Merlion, a giant statue, and fountain, of a mythical creature, half lion, half fish - Singapore's unofficial mascot.

He has made two trips to China since March to meet President Xi Jinping, and held summit talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April and May in the Demilitarized Zone, which separates the two Koreas.

Just a few months ago, Kim was an global pariah accused of ordering the killing of his uncle, a half-brother and scores of officials suspected of disloyalty.

UK Supreme Court criticizes Northern Ireland abortion laws
The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission says the law should be changed in cases of rape, incest and fatal foetal abnormality. Supreme Court rules this week that Northern Ireland's abortion restrictions violate human rights statutes.

First to arrive in Singapore was the IL-76 transport plane carrying food and other belongings of the DPRK's leader, as well as his bullet-proof limousine and a portable toilet.

Although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail, Trump sounded a positive note in a lunch meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee. "I think it's not a one-meeting deal", Trump said Thursday.

He explained that he gave the North Korean official Trump's book, "Art of the Deal", while he was in North Korea.

Authorities have beefed up security around the hotels where Trump and Kim (Saint Regis) will be staying in central Singapore.

It's the "changed era" that is important.

He insisted the U.S. would accept nothing less than complete denuclearisation.

At the conclusion of the summit, President Trump will participate in a media availability before departing tomorrow at approximately 8 p.m. for the United States.

The move was in reaction to North Korea's criticism of United States vice president Mike Pence's statement that the country could meet the same fate as Libya if it failed to meet a nuclear deal with the US.

Sebastian Gorka said Monday that President Trump's historic summit with Kim Jong Un can yield two large results.

Not all USA officials have joined Messrs. But the danger of a potential collapse felt all the more real when a Pentagon spokesperson told reporters in late May that the us military was "ready to fight tonight" should North Korea launch strikes against American interests or allies.
