Pompeo says U.S. is willing to 'make security assurances' to North Korea

Donald Trump upbeat ahead of summit with Kim Jong Un North Korean leader visits Singapore sites

Regardless, Trump seemed determined to keep his meeting with Kim low-key, dangling the possibility of a future summit in the USA if things go well this week.

When asked upon landing in Singapore how he was feeling about the encounter, Trump gave a brief answer: "Very good".

On Tuesday, the two leaders will begin their meeting with a one-on-one session at 9 am local time.

Mr Trump declared that he was on a "mission of peace" before he left the G7 summit early to head to Singapore.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump spent his flight from Canada to Singapore "meeting with his staff, reading materials and preparing for his meetings in Singapore".

Balakrishnan, Singapore's foreign minister, made important visits to Washington, Pyongyang and Beijing in recent days to ensure that there would be no last-minute spoilers for the historic meeting hosted by the city-state.

Formally ending the Korean War - 65 years after hostilities ceased with the signing of an armistice - will also be on the table at the first-ever meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting American president.

Maybe that is why they are living it up.without paying the bill.

The clearest benchmarks about what the U.S.is seeking from the summit, however, have come from Pompeo rather than Trump. The leaders are spending the night at hotels about a half-mile apart in the upscale shopping area in Tanglin.

G-7 summit with Trump was a ‘sobering’ experience, Merkel says
The White House is escalating its verbal attacks against Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of close American ally Canada. In his tweets, Trump attacked Trudeau by calling him " dishonest and weak " and denouncing statements as " false ".

The president's most senior expert on weapons of mass destruction has joined him in Singapore for the summit.

USA allies are anxious that Trump could upend decades of worldwide precedent, NPR's Mara Liasson reported on Weekend Edition Sunday.

It initially was meant to rid the North of its weapons, to forge the "complete denuclearization" of the country.

It is no easy task. "The scale is bigger, the number of journalists coming is huge, even more than what we had for the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and World Bank meetings (in Singapore in 2006)", he said.

Exuding confidence, Trump said he has done relatively little formal preparation.

Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

"If I think it won't happen, I'm not going to waste my time", he said. "Just my touch, my feel".

"The fact that we prepared this in two weeks, this adds to logistics demands by officers who worked around the clock", Shanmugam said at a security briefing yesterday.

"It's unknown territory, in the truest sense", Trump said during the G-7.
