Dennis Rodman to Travel to Singapore for North Korea Summit

U.S. President Donald Trump flanked by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly attend a lunch with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and officials at the Istana in Singapore

"I'm very confident that relationships between our countries, the United States and those G-7 countries, will continue to move forward on a strong basis", Mr. Pompeo told reporters, speaking in advance of Mr. Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. The intimate huddle will precede a larger meeting and a working lunch attended by Trump's chief of staff, national security adviser and secretary of state, the White House said, along with some of their North Korean counterparts.

Dennis Rodman doesn't have an invitation, but he's obviously still excited to be part of President Trump and Kim Jong-un's historic summit - he just touched down in Singapore.

President Donald J. Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. Both leaders would offer "clear, specific, unequivocal statements" outlining a dismantlement of North Korean weapons, an inventory and removal of all nuclear fuel and an opening up to United Nations nuclear inspectors.

Flattery and Threats Trump, a former real-estate developer, has approached his meeting with Kim like a business negotiation - with flattery, flashy promises and flexible terms juxtaposed with constant threats to walk away from the table.

Trump and Kim will first pose for a handshake, followed by a private one-on-one meeting, the White House said on Monday.

In 2014, Tokyo-based Mt Gox, which once handled 80% of the world's bitcoin trades, filed for bankruptcy after losing bitcoins worth around half a billion dollars.


Kim Yong-chol worked in North Korean intelligence for 30 years and is now in charge of relations with South Korea and the United States.

Any change to North Korean media's day-to-day routine usually signifies that something important is happening. "To all Americans and the rest of the world I'm honored to call President Trump a friend", he said. He said last week that he expects to know "within the first minute" of their meeting if Kim is serious about giving up his weapons.

Tuesday's summit in Singapore is unlikely to be a "momentous event", Kirk Wagar tells CNBC. It brings the president more in line with veteran diplomats who have dealt with North Korea and know firsthand the difficulty of extracting verifiable concessions, and it helps ensure that - whatever happens on Tuesday - the president can tout it as a win.

Widely-known as a hawk on North Korea, his comments comparing negotiations with to the "Libya model" angered North Korean officials, as well as Trump, almost derailing the summit.

But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang.

Merkel: Trump's Twitter Withdrawal From G-7 Statement 'Sobering' And 'Depressing'
Seibert told reporters in Berlin Monday that his office "is connecting no interpretation" with the picture. The summit did not mark the end of the transatlantic partnership between Europe and the U.S., Merkel said.


It is also unclear what concessions Pyongyang could demand in return - which makes the summit very hard to predict, according to analysts.

Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement ending the Korean War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty.

"The nuclear testing has got them to the point where they now get this meeting", he said.

The rare public appearance of Kim, waving and smiling to onlookers, adds to the more affable image of the young leader that has emerged since his summit in April with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in. Forging a peace treaty involving South Korea may be another topic of the Trump-Kim meeting.
