Trump, Kim Arrive In Singapore Ahead Of High-Stakes Summit

Singapore (June 10, 2018): North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived on Sunday in Singapore ahead of one of the most unusual and highly anticipated summits in recent world history — a sit-down with President Donald Trump meant to settle a standoff over Pyongyang’s nuclear bomb arsenal.

A few hours later, President Donald Trump also arrived in Singapore at the island city-state’s Paya Lebar Air Base, travelling from Canada, where he attended a meeting of the Group of Seven Nations (G7).Trump’s high-risk meeting with Kim is scheduled for Tuesday. The president hopes to win a legacy-making deal with the North to give up their nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying that it may take more than one meeting.This will be the first summit of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting US president. The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has the advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
