He later strolled along the harbor at the heart of the central business district with Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan, who tweeted a selfie with Kim.

Meanwhile, Law and Home Affairs Minister Shanmugam is confident that security is in place for the Trump-Kim summit.

South Korean media says Kim went there with his sister Kim Yo Jong and other top deputies.

Kim is in Singapore for a historic summit with U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

Now, both sides appear prepared to let Tuesday's historic face-to-face between the sitting leaders of the US and North Korea function as more of an ice-breaker (and photo op) than a high-stakes diplomatic showdown.

The leader of North Korea has arrived to Singapore in what has been a meticulously coordinated scheme shrouded in mystery. Trump and Kim planned to meet one-on-one for most of an hour- joined only by translators.

According to FlightRadar24, a website that tracks the flights of various aircraft, thousands of people followed the progress of Kim Jong-un's plane.

The guards must be about the same height as Kim, BBC said. And the abrupt change in schedule came shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had seemed to lower expectations for the meeting, which Trump had earlier predicted could potentially yield an on-the-spot end to the Korean War. As I recently wrote, while certain sanctions on North Korea are discretionary, a key 2016 law specifically obligates the president to sanction people and entities complicit in human rights abuses in North Korea - not just those involved in weapons proliferation - and the Trump administration legally can't suspend sanctions more broadly unless North Korea implements key human rights reforms.

Later, Pompeo shared a picture of Trump speaking with the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Singapore.

Kim Jong Un has arrived in Singapore ahead of a historic summit with US President Donald Trump - and he brought his toilet.

Kim had landed in Singapore hours earlier, staying silent as he has since Trump announced he had rescheduled the once-cancelled meeting set for Tuesday morning local time (prime time Monday in the United States).

Kim began the year by declaring to the world that "a nuclear button is always on the desk of my office", which was widely interpreted as an allusion to his personal control over North Korea's nuclear arsenal. Trump had previously said the talks might extend beyond the first day.

Pompeo, who has traveled twice to Pyongyang to meet with Kim, told reporters Monday that North Korea has conveyed a willingness to denuclearize.

It's a dramatic departure for Trump, who kicked off 2018 bragging that his nuclear button is "much bigger" than Kim's.

Asked how long it would take for him to work out if Kim was serious about striking some kind of peace deal, Trump replied: "I think within the first minute I'll know".
