Kim summit will cost about $20m to host: PM Lee

Trump says he has clear objective for North Korea summit

"And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again", Trump said.

Though it could mean many things, the relative speed of the reports about Singapore could be seen as a sign of confidence by the North that the summit will go well.

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to minimize expectations, saying more than one meeting may be necessary.

"It's unknown territory in the truest sense but I really feel confident", Trump said as he prepared to leave the ongoing G7 summit in Canada early and head to Asia.

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

"So far, so good".

Last year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the United States mainland, sending tensions soaring to a level unseen in years as a newly-elected Trump traded threats of war and colourful personal insults with Kim, with Trump dubbed a "dotard" and Kim "Little Rocket Man".

"When the (US and North Korea) asked us to host the meeting, we could not say no".

"I think the entire world, as we do, prays for the success of this effort", Netanyahu said.

Other than meeting fans, the pair also spoke with local and worldwide media, many of whom had arrived in Singapore ahead of the summit tomorrow.

Doing away with plastic is hard , given their use virtually across every segment-electronics, transportation, construction, textiles.

But former USA deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage said he expects little progress on the key issue of defining the parameters of denuclearisation.

However, according to Moon, Kim remains skeptical of the USA leaders' pledges. Create peace and great prosperity for his land.

Ms Giguere said: "Given the two leaders' much-publicised history of animosity, making a good first impression in this case might be extremely hard".

While President Trump has spoken positively about the upcoming summit, he has been vague on details of what they might be able to actually achieve.

"I'm asking every Democrat who wrote that letter and all my Republican colleagues to tell North Korea and China that if diplomacy fails, we will have the president's back, we'll authorize the use of military force as a last resort to stop the nuclear threat in North Korea to the American homeland and the world at-large". He died later that month.

At least three people have been turned away from Singapore borders due to summit, says Shanmugam.

"The truth is, he's been preparing for this his whole life", Pence said.

Trump and Kim are set to meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Singapore, which is 9 p.m. Monday on the U.S. East Coast. But the president has significantly softened the USA negotiating stance in the immediate run-up to the summit, accepting the prospect of an open-ended negotiations involving multiple future summits.

The Trump-Kim summit is being viewed as an attempt to address the last festering legacy of the Cold War and it is the first time a North Korean leader has met a sitting U.S. president.

Sources told CNN that U.S. officials have established a contingency plan for a potential second day of discussions between Trump and Kim depending on the direction of their planned meeting on June 12. "I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside", Trump said.
