Donald Trump And Kim Jong Un Arrive In Singapore Ahead Of Landmark Talks

The stage is set for a landmark summit to take place on Tuesday, with US President Doanld Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un touching down in Singapore on Sunday.

The summit aims to bring a peaceful relationship between the Washington and Pyongyang, which have effectively been at war for more than six decades. 

The summit, which will begin on Tuesday morning,will take place at the Capella Hotel on the Singaporean resort island of Sentosa. The talks will be the first between a US and North Korean leader.

Mr Trump touched down in Singapore on Air Force One, just hours after Mr Kim, who has only publicly left his country three times while head of state.

The US President has said he will “know within a minute” if the meeting is to be a success. The meeting is aimed at ending a nuclear stand-off that has threatened to escalate into armed conflict, with the two leaders continually insulting each other throughout 2017.

The meeting will take place amid high security, with a special secure zone being declared for all of Sentosa.
