Speaking before his departure from the G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump said: "I feel that Kim Jong-un wants to do something great for his people".

A rare direct flight from Pyongyang landed in Singapore on Saturday ahead of the expected arrival of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a summit with US President Donald Trump on Tuesday. "Trump, who prides himself on his deal-making prowess, said he thinks he will know 'within the first minute" of meeting Kim whether the North Korean leader is serious about the nuclear negotiations.

Kim has the "opportunity the likes of which, almost, if you look into history, very few people have ever had", Trump said.

"That takes a great deal of work, a great big commitment on the part of North Korea as well, and there'll be a parallel set of security assurances that are also big and bold and different", the top United States diplomat said. "I don't want to waste his time". Mr Xi's agenda remains hidden, and muddied by its complicated relationship with both North Korea, and the US.

The summit idea seemed to appear out of nowhere back in March, when Trump announced a meeting.

At 9am on Tuesday, numerous 25,000-strong South Korean community in Singapore will take a break from their work, errands and studies to pay rapt attention to the television for an event they thought they would never witness.

"I'm glad to say that as of now, it's all systems go", he said.

Still, the gulf between the USA and North Korea remains vast. "I felt as if I was back in time, back in the period immediately after the Second World War when global military tribunals and other investigations were conducted into the Nazi horrors". "I think that Chairman Kim Jong Un is prepared to do that as well", he said. We've had hawkish policies, we've had sanctions and so on, they don't work.

Plainclothes police and the Singapore Army's Explosives and Ordnance Disposal unit were seen working to prepare for a high-security event.

He went on to say that the objective of the summit would "be more meaningful with Russian Federation".

"At a minimum, I do believe, at least we'll have met each other", Trump said, adding later that "hopefully, we will have liked each other".

"Even if they cheat on handing over nuclear weapons, possibly cheat on freezing uranium production, there can be a certain amount of cheating and we can still be better off", Kristof says. "And I think we should make that clear".

But nothing will be fully settled until China, which sent hundreds of thousands of troops into the North to prevent a quick US victory in 1950, and South Korea also sign off.

President Trump confirmed human rights was not mentioned in his meeting with the North Korean delegation at the White House last week.

Getting a legally binding peace treaty is unlikely in Singapore because "you have to disentangle a lot of United Nations security issues, Security Council issues", said Christopher Hill, a former lead US nuclear negotiator with the North, who also noted that "as a practical matter, China has to be there".
