Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile programme that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States, insisting he would swiftly achieve what previous USA administrations have failed to do.

The summit between the two leaders, scheduled for 9 a.m. local time on Tuesday, will be a crucial test of Trump's bet on North Korea: that Kim's desire to end his country's economic strangulation and pariah status can prevail over the dictator's fear of relinquishing his nuclear threat.

Previous White House administrations had denied Kim, his father and grandfather, the "reward" of a face-to-face meeting with a sitting United States president. Before the announcement, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seemed to hint that the outcome of the talks might not be what Trump has promised in the past.

Rodman said he hopes everyone reads it before the summit and reiterated that "we've got the greatest negotiator of all time" to "show the world how it's done". Now North Korean officials will nearly certainly emphasise preventing any sudden mishaps in Kim Jong Un's first visit to a foreign country other than China or South Korea since taking power, said Kim Doo-hyun, professor of protection politics at Korea National Sport University.

The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours.

Rodong ran images showing Kim disembarking the Air China jet he used to fly to the summit as well as him meeting with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Kim has been more cryptic and calculating, with his regime vacillating between welcoming talks with the US, ignoring American overtures, and sharply attacking some of Trump's top officials with insults and threats, said Patrick Cronin, director of the Center for a New America Security's Asia-Pacific security program.

"The most likely scenario is that they will squeeze out a semblance of an agreement that maps out no specific road map to denuclearization but serves as some sort of starting point that would allow them to talk about the details going forward", said Tsuneo Watanabe, a senior fellow at the Sasakawa Peace Foundation.

Before flying to Singapore, Mr. Trump was in Canada for the G-7 summit with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. All seven leaders had worked out a joint statement stressing the importance of a rules-based worldwide trading system.

While advisers insist Trump has been reviewing briefing materials, he insists his gut instincts will matter most when he gets in the room with Kim.

More recently, Trump has suggested he will raise human rights issues with Kim. "That's what I do". -North Korea summit in Singapore.

Kim was accompanied at the meeting by vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the WPK Ri Su Yong, and Colonel General No Kwang Chol - one of the three promoted in a recent North Korean military shakeup.

"The art of the deal is not just a title", he said, "it's a way at looking at life".

Kim Yo Jong gained notoriety at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

In the 1990s and again the early 2000s, North Korea agreed to halt its nuclear program only to continue with clandestine research.
