  • Singapore pays for Kim Jong Un's hotel during Trump summit

Under Kim Jong Un, the third-generation dictator of the country established in 1948, North Korea has rapidly advanced its nuclear capabilities.

However, it now appears that the U.S.is confident tings are going smoothly. He told reporters he thinks he will know nearly immediately whether a deal can be made, saying: "I will know, just my touch, my feel". "A tremendous success. We will have a great relationship".

Kim Jong Un's entourage has left for the luxury Singapore island resort where the North Korean leader will meet with President Donald Trump.

"Past practices and prejudices were obstacles on our way forward, but we overcame all of them and are here today", Kim said.

Our team of reporters bringing you the news as it unfolds include our diplomatic editor, Julian Borger, and foreign correspondent Benjamin Haas who are on the ground in Singapore.

He said that the cost is all part of the $20 million Singapore is spending to host the meeting.

The first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake, an image sure to be devoured from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond.

Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Yet even as he turned his attention to the summit, Trump continued his blistering attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, tweeting: "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". "And it's my honor to be involved".

The circus-like atmosphere might be amusing if the stakes weren't so high. The former foreign minister was North Korea's ambassador to Switzerland when Kim Jong Un studied there as a teenager.

With that said, in recent days the White House has emphasized Tuesday's meeting will be the first step in a broader process.

As I recently wrote, while certain sanctions on North Korea are discretionary, a key 2016 law specifically obligates the president to sanction people and entities complicit in human rights abuses in North Korea - not just those involved in weapons proliferation - and the Trump administration legally can't suspend sanctions more broadly unless North Korea implements key human rights reforms.

The White House said Trump will leave Singapore 15 hours ahead of schedule, flying back to Washington on Tuesday night instead of Wednesday morning. North Korea also wants an end to what it considers America's "hostile policy" and a security guarantee that the US will not seek to remove the regime. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the delegations were "rapidly" making progress, but it will come down to the meeting between the two leaders.
