At the Trump-Kim Summit, Human Rights Are on the Agenda

  • U.S. President Donald Trump flanked by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly attend a lunch with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and officials at the Istana in Singapore

Preliminary talks between officials have been taking place ahead of the unprecedented first meeting.

Some hope for an end to Cold War confrontation and that the North will eventually give up its nuclear weapons, others are sceptical about Pyongyang's intentions - and some say they have too many economic problems of their own to pay much attention. "We're not going to go in and sign something on June 12, and we never were". "The doors are opening". "He added that he believes the White House is correct in saying that "'this is a unique moment in history'".

Mr Kim has made a tour of some city sights, waving at spectators who cheered as he arrived to visit a high-end hotel.

"Prime Minister Lee welcomed Chairman Kim to Singapore".

It was Kim's only foray on Monday outside of the St. Regis hotel, where he's been staying since his arrival a day earlier.

"The entire world is focusing on the historic summit between the DPRK (North Korea) and the U.S., and thanks to your honest efforts".

The secrecy of the North Korean leader's health is, apparently, paramount.

The circus-like atmosphere might be amusing if the stakes weren't so high.

Lobster bisque, beef tenderloin and ice cream were on the lunch menu, and there was also an early birthday cake for Trump, who turns 72 on Thursday.

If things fall apart, it could be because "Trump presents Kim with a hard-and-fast binary choice: relinquish nuclear weapons and live in peace and prosperity, or cling to them and risk the impoverishment of your people and the safety of your regime", Haas said.

"I think within the first minute I'll know", Trump predicted, as he departed a G-7 summit in Canada, bound for Singapore.

On Tuesday, the two leaders will begin their meeting with a one-on-one session at 9 am local time.

"This will not be just a photo-op", Mr. Trump said last Thursday during a news conference after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan visited the White House.

Kim Yong-chol worked in North Korean intelligence for 30 years and is now in charge of relations with South Korea and the United States.

"Ms Choe has also served as an English language interpreter for Kim Jong-un and other senior DPRK leadership when they have interacted with foreign nationals", the website states. An editorial in the Rodong Sinmun news outlet also talked about a "new relationship" with the US.

They also mention the goal of his trip, a "historic first meeting with the United States president", describing not only Mr Kim's itinerary but also the fact that he used a Chinese plane to fly to Singapore, rather than his own personal jet. On the day before the meeting, weeks of preparation appeared to pick up in pace, with US and North Korean officials meeting throughout Monday at a Singapore hotel.
