US President Trump arrives in Singapore for historic Trump-Kim summit

The United States delegation at tomorrow's expanded bilateral meeting will include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Success in Singapore would see Kim making a bold decision to exchange his nukes for economic support and security assurances, according to Ryan Haas, an Asia expert at the John L Thornton China Center. Previous reports had suggested Trump would leave on Wednesday.

Kim Yong Chol's rise has baffled many North Korea watchers because he is the ruling Workers' Party official in charge of South Korea ties, not global or USA relations.

There will not be a repeat of "flimsy agreements" made between previous US administrations and North Korea, Secretary Pompeo told reporters in Singapore on Monday.

North Korea signed onto a goal of "complete denuclearization" of the peninsula in an April 27 declaration with South Korea.

Following their meeting, President Trump will hold a media availability with reporters as Kim Jong Un departs back to North Korea.

Euan Graham, the director of the Lowy Institute's international-security program, agrees, recently telling Business Insider that what North Korea wants is to be seen as a "peer partner of the United States". "If diplomacy does not move in the right direction- and we are hopeful that it will continue to do so- those measures will increase".

In March, Trump accepted on the spot an invitation by Kim to meet in person, without preconditions, setting the stage for Tuesday's historic event.

Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire US mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the USA and the North.

North Korea had earlier criticized US national security adviser John Bolton, who had called for North Korea to quickly give up its nuclear arsenal in a deal that would mirror Libya's abandonment of its program for weapons of mass destruction.

Rodman said he hopes to surprise his friend Kim with his appearance during the summit. Critics fear that Mr Trump is poorly prepared for the negotiations - while others say Mr Trump's quickfire approach has already produced results - including North Korea saying it is willing to consider denuclearising. "It's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt", Trump said. "We appreciate your hospitality and professionalism and your friendship".

While human rights will get a low billing in Singapore, Trump hasn't totally ignored the issue. But some USA officials have questioned whether Trump was doing enough to get up to speed.

With much of the world focused on the historic summit between the two leaders, Trump also made sure to press his case that his administration had been good for the USA economy.

Kim and Trump arrived in tropical Singapore on Sunday for the first ever face-to-face meeting by leaders of two countries that have been enemies since the 1950-1953 Korean War. Trump left the summit early, and as he flew to Singapore, he tweeted that he was yanking the US out of the group's traditional closing statement.

The summit's venue is the Capella hotel on Sentosa, a resort island off Singapore's port with luxury hotels, a Universal Studios theme park and man-made beaches.

The two clasped hands for a long while Tuesday as they posed for photos in front of a row of US and North Korean flags.
