Flight from Pyongyang lands in Singapore ahead of North Korean leader’s arrival

Kim Jong Un impersonator held by Singapore immigration Trump-Kim summit: What to expect when the U.S., North Korean leaders come face to face

President Trump said he'll know "within the first minute" if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is taking their Tuesday summit seriously from "my touch, my feel".

Historically, North Korea hasn't shied away from signing agreements, but in the implementation of the agreements, things fall apart.

Trump has left for Singapore from Canada after attending the two-day Group of Seven (G7) meeting that ended Saturday.

With the world's "centre of gravity" in terms of power and influence moving towards Asia, Singapore is likely to begin sharing the stage with Switzerland and Norway as neutral places for diplomatic arbitration, said Oh, the foreign policy observer.

USA defence and intelligence officials have assessed the North to be on the threshold of having the capability to strike anywhere in the continental US with a nuclear-tipped missile - a capacity that Trump and other US officials have said they would not tolerate. It also successfully tested missiles that had enough range to reach the US mainland.

Trump and Kim are due to have the first ever US-North Korea summit in Singapore on Tuesday, with the American leader hoping his counterpart will scrap his nuclear weapons program in return for security guarantees. PSCORE is a nonprofit that promotes reunification, raises awareness about human rights issues in North Korea, and helps defectors adjust to life in South Korea.

The North Korean leader's 39-year-old IL62 P-885 appeared over northeast China for a brief time on the flight tracking website, though disappeared from view shortly after entering Chinese airspace.

"He might as well have said, 'Carry on, '" Lee said. Kim, up until his recent high-profile summit with South Korea's president on the southern side of their shared border, has usually hunkered down behind his vast propaganda and security services, or made short trips to autocrat-friendly China.

Despite occasional eruptions of bloodshed, the war has been dormant for 65 years, so any treaty would be mostly symbolic, said Bong Youngshik, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Yonsei University. North Korea "has numerous facilities involved in the development, production, and testing of nuclear weapons and missiles, some of them located at the known nuclear complex at Yongbyon, but many located at undeclared sites elsewhere in the DPRK".

"Id like to accomplish more than that", Trump said. I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast.

Given the current state of extreme partisan politics, and the apparent lack of consultation between Congress and the administration on the negotiations, there surely will be critics whatever the outcome is, she added.

Haas offers a useful warning, though, as people around the world settle in to watch the show in Singapore: "Virtually no North Korea analyst inside or outside of the United States government" expects Kim to actually give up his nukes.

Japan's government is anxious that Trump, with his "America First" focus, may accept a deal that eliminates the threat from North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles that could strike the USA mainland, without dealing sufficiently with medium-range missiles that could strike Tokyo. "That's what I do", Trump continued.
