Singapore deports South Korean journalists in trespass case

  • Kim arrived with his notorious running security detail

The meeting follows talks between the Singaporean Prime Minister Lee and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday: a meeting which saw Lee praise Kim's and Trump's "bold and admirable decision" to hold the summit.

Senior South Korean officials, including Second Deputy Chief of the Presidential National Security Office Nam Gwan-pyo, are also staying in Shangri-La Hotel - U.S. President Donald Trump's temporary residence ahead of tomorrow's summit.

"The first minute I'll know - just my touch, my feel, that's what I do", Trump said over the weekend at the G-7 summit in Canada.

Trump is to meet Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday while Kim has no official agenda.

The two are due to meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa for their high-stakes summit, the first-ever talks between a US and North Korean leader and the culmination of a head-spinning diplomatic dance. Lee has said the summit would cost Singapore about S$20 million ($A19m), more than half of which would go on security.

At the G7 summit in Canada and in the hours afterward, Trump railed against trade practices that he described as unfair and said he'd given US representatives instructions to rescind an agreement to official communique that outlined a mutual plan to ensure "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade".

Earlier, Trump tweeted it was "great to be in Singapore, excitement is in the air".

He is also set to meet Lee on Monday.

Concerns that the summit would not take place have turned out to be baseless, however, as the primaries have arrived or are set to arrive in Singapore and everything appears to be on or ahead of schedule.

Mr Trump has said it normally takes him about five seconds to figure out whether he will get along with someone.

At the lunch, Trump expressed optimism for tomorrow's meeting with Kim and also thanked his Singapore hosts for their hospitality.

Mr Trump has previously raised the prospect of reaching a deal with Mr Kim to scrap his nuclear arsenal, which has posed a growing threat to the US.

While Kim has shown he's willing to bargain, O'Hanlon said, "Giving up his nuclear weapons is probably going to be the last step in that process, not the first step".

Mr Kim was driven to the city centre on Sunday in a stretch Mercedes-Benz limousine accompanied by a convoy of more than 20 vehicles.

On the other side, for Kim sharing a common platform with the USA president is itself a landmark as previously the USA leaders have avoided doing so.

Kim had arrived hours earlier in a plane loaned by China, which for decades has been North Korea's only major ally.

But Chinese analysts agreed that Beijing could and would play a larger role following the summit between Kim and Trump, who - given their divergent views on denuclearisation - are expected to make some "symbolic deals" when they meet.

But it is Mr Kim's pursuit of nuclear weapons that gives his meeting with Mr Trump such high stakes.

The source added: "I don't know exactly when the move is supposed to happen, but it is being talked about as a permanent move". Judging from the pictures Trump posted on Twitter , she was dressed in an Escada column gown in black, white and gold lame.
