Singapore: Historic meeting between Trump, Kim will take place tomorrow

Both Kim and Trump are unbending in their demands for loyalty. "It is a historic negotiation, and there is no way this president is not going to stand strong", Kudlowsaid.

Kim, who met Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday after arriving, thanked him for hosting the event. Dr. Lonnie Edge, assistant professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies' Graduate School of Interpretation and Translation, says that on his second visit, Rodman's trip was arranged through a tour company set up by a Canadian speaker of North Korean.

Haas offers a useful warning, though, as people around the world settle in to watch the show in Singapore: "Virtually no North Korea analyst inside or outside of the US government" expects Kim to actually give up his nukes.

Whether they could agree to a draft document will likely determine whether Kim and Trump can sign a tangible "outcome" at the summit.

Ha Yeon Kim, who has interpreted for TIME, says that while she was translating the 2016 US presidential election campaign into Korean for Seoul television station Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), she was surprised by the often "very non-presidential" language Trump directed at Republican candidate Jeb Bush and others.

The two leaders are scheduled to meet for the first time on Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island, where the process regarding denuclearisation of North Korea may kick-start in exchange for economic aid.

A security guarantee could come in the form a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War.

A bilateral meeting of the USA and North Korean delegations will follow, said the official. For starters, we need to be realistic about what "success" means. Progress could lead to a peace treaty and formally end a state of war on the Korean peninsula, which has persisted for almost 70 years.

An unsuccessful summit, which will begin Monday night Washington time, could plunge U.S.

Kim also took an Air China jet to Singapore instead of his own private plane in order to provide an added layer of security.

Trump and Kim landed in a city teeming with media and onlookers of all stripes, from foreign policy analysts like Kelly and Enos to former basketball star Dennis Rodman, who claims to be a friend of the two leaders.

There's just no recent precedent for the gamble Kim Jong Un is taking.

North Koreans were told two weeks ago that a summit between Kim and Trump would take place, but not when or where it would happen. Despite that, "we're going in with a very positive spirit" and "I think very well prepared". Cha told TIME last month that he did not expect a comprehensive deal to be reached but Trump "never has a bad meeting". In order to prevent the collapse of the talks and subsequently, North Korea's return to the mainstream after decades of worldwide isolation, advisors (from Washington and Pyongyang) in the meeting must do what they can to steer the discussion in a positive direction.

"Wide-ranging and profound views on the issue of establishing new DPRK-US relations, the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, the issue of actualizing the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern" will be discussed, state-run KCNA reported early Monday.

On Monday morning, North Koreans woke up to the news that Kim had arrived in Singapore for the "historic" tête-à-tête.

After more than a day's silence on Twitter, Trump posted four tweets about trade disagreements that were the talk of the G-7 conference, followed by a quick mention of the summit he is now attending - writing "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!" - before turning back to tweeting about trade once more.
