Kim Jong-un's 'running bodyguards' back in action again

11 June 2018

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying that it may take more than one meeting.

Pyongyang has taken some steps to show sincerity, returning three USA detainees and blowing up the entrances to its nuclear test site.

The two leaders are staying in separate hotels, not far from each other.

The talks between the United States and North Korean leaders, which will be devoted to de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, will be held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

The art of the unconventional deal?


"No doubt that Mr Trump and his team prepared with cultural coach and will rely on the assistance of professional interpreters to help making their point respectfully and efficiently".

"All I can say is I am totally prepared to walk away", he said on Thursday. There was no need to.

"There is no military solution to the problem on the Korean Peninsula", Markey said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

You can imagine the drumming of fingers in anterooms as officials wait to be told if there will be peace in our time, or whether it's all fallen apart and we're heading for the airport.

"Sorry, we can not let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on trade anymore", Trump wrote in a tweet. "We appreciated it", Mr. Trump said.

But they hope the US won't ignore North Korea's advanced chemical and biological weapons program, as well as more conventional artillery which remains a threat to the region.

A "changed era" had come about, it said.

Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore where he will meet with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un. "And so let's see what that brings us, first and foremost", he added.

Arriving on a plane loaned by China, Kim was also greeted by Balakrishnan.

Later on Sunday, Kim left the St Regis hotel in central Singapore in a motorcade that included his stretch Mercedes Benz limousine and travelled to the presidential palace, known as the Istana, where he met Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Even if brief, the meeting could potentially be the start of a broader dialogue between Trump and Kim.

North Korea, many experts believe, stands on the brink of being able to target the entire USA mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the US and the North.

The US president vowed to unleash "fire and fury" if Pyongyang kept threatening the US.

The North Korean leader is also likely to be served food prepared by a travelling chef from the North, Chae added.

Rodman has developed a relationship with Kim over the years, coming to call him "Marshall". This isn't like the United States and Iran.

The comment can be dismissed as casual optimism characteristic of the U.S. leader, but the watchers interpreted it as suggesting that the atmosphere in their last-minute negotiations on denuclearization may not be discouraging.

The U.S. also wishes to win agreement on tangible denuclearization commitments from the North.

But then again, nothing about this summit is routine.
