Share this article


The US President and North Korean leader have arrived in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's historic summit.

The country's foreign minister welcomed Kim Jong Un earlier.

Mr Kim has since met with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Donald Trump arrived several hours later, having travelled from the G7 summit in Canada.

The US side will be seeking a deal on Pyongyang's denuclearisation, with North Korea likely to be hoping for an easing of crippling international sanctions.

Speaking as he left Quebec for Singapore, President Trump said he was feeling 'really confident' about his meeting with the North Korean leader.

He said: "I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. And he won’t have that opportunity again."

Tuesday's summit is set to take place at a hotel on the small tourist resort island of Sentosa.

It comes following weeks of uncertainty over the summit.

It was ultimately confirmed last week that the meeting would proceed as planned following a flurry of diplomacy - culminating with a senior North Korean official visiting the White House.
