Why does the Singapore summit matter so much?

The North Korean leader, per South Korean intelligence, even ordered the killing of his own half-brother.

Mr Trump accepted North Korea's invitation for direct talks after more than a year of heated rhetoric and with global concern that hostilities might escalate into military confrontation.
