Kim covered by ‘wall of bodyguards’ strolls Singapore quay before meeting Trump

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un won a cheer from the crowd as he arrived at Singapore's most famous bar for a drink.

"Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels", Lee Yun-keol, a former member of a North Korean Guard Command unit who defected, told The Washington Post.

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

"We've got a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow", Trump said at a luncheon with the Singapore prime minister on Monday. He later strolled along the harbor at the heart of the central business district with Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan, who tweeted out a selfie with Kim.

He had his first formal meeting of the summit with the prime minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong.

"When I woke up this morning, I saw the news in the newspaper that our respected marshal went to Singapore for the North Korea-US summit", said Han Il-gwang, a Pyongyang resident, displaying typical discretion.

But it is Kim's pursuit of nuclear weapons that gives his meeting with Mr. Trump such high stakes.

It initially was meant to rid the North of its weapons, to forge the "complete denuclearization" of the country.

Yet Trump wants them there, and other than his apparently desperate desire to hang out with Putin, it's hard to imagine why. Austria and other European countries, he said, have been discussed as a possible venue for a U.S. -Russia meeting.


Pompeo has disputed the notion that the president is moving the goalposts, telling reporters that Trump "has always understood that this was a process."

Kim may be interested in getting aid and eventual investment to stabilize and then rebuild a crumbling economy. Jeff Merkley, D-OR and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro on Weekend Edition Sunday. "But I think that will take a little bit of time".

"The entire world is focusing on the historic summit between the DPRK (North Korea) and the USA, and thanks to your honest efforts".

During the media interview, Mr Lee said that Singapore had committed a lot of resources to the summit's logistics and security because of the profile of the meeting and the nature of what is being discussed.

He said the spirit of the LGBT community is one that "says no to oppression". "We are all sacred and we all belong". She has also been seen on Broadway in Once, Indecent, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and The Miracle Worker .


Such a meeting was unthinkable just months ago when Trump and Kim were exchanging insults and threats that raised fears of war in the region. Mr. Trump arrived later Sunday. "Diplomacy requires a certain amount of trust and consistency".

The White House said the daylong summit would also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders.

Plans for the meeting almost foundered after Trump abruptly withdrew in May, citing North Korea's "open hostility" during negotiations. "Kim must not see American weakness".
