Trump to depart from Singapore one day early

Trump to depart from Singapore one day early

As President Trump prepares to participate in an historic summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, progress in relations between the two countries could open investment opportunities for US companies. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters this month that the troops, most stationed on the border between the two Koreas, are "not going anywhere", adding, "It's not even a subject of the discussions".

From there, the two will engage in more talks with advisers joining them through a working lunch.

For all the upbeat talk, it remained to be seen what, if any, concrete results the sit-down would produce. I think that he's going to surprise on the upside.

A South Korean parliamentary source said negotiators from both countries "were debating over whether to put [the term] CVID" in the joint communique to be released after the summit. There was a past that grabbed our ankles and wrong prejudices and practices that at times covered our eyes and ears. "Many people in the world will think of this as a scene from a fantasy.science fiction movie".

Trump and Kim are set to meet Tuesday morning (Monday evening in the United States).

The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours.

"The picture, perhaps the first ever by the North Korean leader, was snapped during a visit to the city's Garden Dome, Vivian Balakrishnan Singapore's Minister for Foreign Affairs, and posted to Twitter early on Monday with the caption "#guesswhere?"

Trump and the North Korean leader will meet at the Capella Hotel on the island of Sentosa on Tuesday to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapon program. Kim has been accused of horrific rights abuses against his people.

One top Trump adviser cast the move as a show of strength before the Kim meeting. But he added "our hostages" are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped.

Trump, too, has recently sought to minimize expectations, saying additional meetings may be necessary.

U.S. officials scheduled to take part in Tuesday's expanded meeting will include Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

President Donald Trump has thanked the prime minister of Singapore for hosting Tuesday's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "In light of how many flimsy agreements the United States has made in previous years, this president will ensure no potential agreement will fail to adequality address the North Korean threat".

Pompeo said Trump was "fully prepared" for the talks, and was optimistic that the outcome would be "successful", while warning that there was still "lots of work left to do".

Iran said North Korea should be wary of negotiating with Mr Trump following his withdrawal from the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement.

American leaders have traditionally criticized North Korean leaders for their totalitarian rule over their country and violent suppression of dissent. He declined, however, to reveal any details of the preliminary discussions being held Monday between US and North Korean officials.

Mr Trump had earlier tweeted about the "excitement in the air".

Delegates were outlining specific goals for what Trump and Kim should try to accomplish and multiple scenarios for how key issues can be resolved.

Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get U.S. troops off the Korean Peninsula and eventually pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea.

"I can only say this, " Pompeo said.

Pompeo also says Tuesday's meeting presents a test of Kim's willingness to agree to deal his nuclear weapons away for "protections" from the United States.

Mr Pompeo said it could provide "an unprecedented opportunity to change the trajectory of our relationship and bring peace and prosperity" to North Korea.

"The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the US, say the haters & losers".
