The summit meeting will take place at 9 a.m. local time - 9 p.m. Monday Eastern time - at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa off Singapores southern coast.

What can we expect from the summit?

But the first-ever meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader will surpass them all in the sheer spectacle, a summit of global significance timed to begin squarely during prime time in the United States on Monday evening, a strategic decision by the ratings-conscious president.

While he famously attended school in Switzerland, traveling this far as supreme leader is an entirely different matter for someone used to being the most revered, most protected, most deferred to human in his country of 25 million. "I wouldn't be surprised either if they come away with a big gesture of sorts to kick-start the process", she said.

President Donald Trump struck an optimistic tone Saturday as he left the G7 summit early for his high stakes summit with Kim Jong Un, telling reporters that his North Korean counterpart has an opportunity for "lasting peace" when they meet in Singapore next week. Three years later North and South Korea became sovereign nations, and two years after that, on June 25, 1950, the North sneak-attacked its southern rival, looking to unify the peninsula by force. The ensuing recognition as a "normal country" could then allow sanctions relief, and later worldwide aid and investment.

Donald Trump said North Korea has been working well with them ahead of the summit. Ambiguity about exactly what "denuclearization" must look like has left some wringing their hands, while others fear he may yield on a longtime North Korean wish that the USA withdraw some or all of its military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

Later, the USA president expanded on this thought.

Still, it's a serious contrast to the days past year when choice insults - Trump's "little rocket man" and Kim's "dotard" - were flying between Washington and Pyongyang during the North's nuclear and missile tests.

Poll numbers that showed most Americans - on both sides of the aisle - approve of his handling of North Korea. North and South Korean soldiers glare at each other across the line that Kim Jong Un historically stepped across for his recent summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

North Korea has rejected giving up its arsenal unilaterally and defends its nuclear and missile programs as a deterrent against what it sees as USA aggression.

While 2018 started off positively the summit was placed in doubt following fiery exchanges between Mr Trump and North Korea. "It wouldn't be good press for Singapore", Lee said.

"So far so good", Trump said. "All will be quiet for a few months, until Kim rolls out his own perfected nuclear posture review", he added. China - North Korea's only ally - has long pushed for dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang. North Korea "has numerous facilities involved in the development, production, and testing of nuclear weapons and missiles, some of them located at the known nuclear complex at Yongbyon, but many located at undeclared sites elsewhere in the DPRK".

Should the agreement be binding?

Singapore City then sold 587 units in May, more than quadruple the number in April, making it the top-selling development in the area, he said. "I think the G-8 would be better".

"It's unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel confident", he said.
