Trump Kim summit: North Korean leader arrives in Singapore

Pennews

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has arrived in Singapore for his scheduled summit meeting with US President Donald Trump, according to a BBC News report on Sunday.

The historic meeting between the two leaders will take place at the island resort of Sentosa on Tuesday. It is the first time a North Korean leader has met a sitting US president. Before setting off, Trump described the summit as a "one-time shot" at peace and said the two were in "unknown territory in the truest sense". The US president will arrive later on Sunday.

Washington hopes the summit will kick-start a process that eventually sees Kim give up his nuclear weapons. The two leaders have had an extraordinary up-and-down relationship over the past 18 months, trading insults and threatening war before abruptly changing tack and moving towards a face-to-face meeting.

Both leaders will meet Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong before their summit. UNI
