State Department: U.S. Won’t Pay for North Korea’s Accommodations in Singapore

The meeting would be the first time Mr Kim has hosted a fellow head of state

The meeting is being hailed as the summit of the year.

Kim Jong-un will reportedly be staying at the Fullerton Hotel. They have had exchanges that were considered "unsuitable" for their respective public offices.

"We are actively preparing for the 12 June summit between the president and the North Korean leader", Sanders said on Monday.

Kim has completely changed his tone towards the United States, which he threatened to destroy with a series of missile strikes previous year. Trump responded by calling Kim "Little Rocket Man" and threatening to "totally destroy" his nation.

Of course, that possibility supposes that Kim truly is approaching these talks with the honest intent to broker peace, and in the minds of many, that may be too far a stretch.

This could be a sign that the North Korean leader is "pursuing a new policy to become a developing country without nuclear weapons, rather than a poor country with nuclear weapons", he said.

The young leader was seen to have been overseeing Kim Yong-chol's USA visit last week, as well as monitoring the talks between American and North Korean diplomats to finalize an agenda for the summit, ongoing at the Panmunjom, the truce village at the inter-Korean border.

Experts have voiced concern that despite Trump's claim to be the world's greatest dealmaker, he knows little about North Korea, arms control or worldwide diplomacy. North Korea has demanded a "phased and synchronized" approach. Trump administration is so confident of a favourable outcome that it is understood to have conveyed its message to the UN's nuclear watchdog, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Lee said Kim's father and grandfather would be "incredibly proud" to see their progeny establish North Korea as legitimate state on the world stage. Ri was thought to be a confidant of Kim's father, the late leader Kim Jong Il. Trump says the goal for the summit is denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

The cost of denuclearization, however, will not end with dismantling North Korea's nuclear weapons program. However, the possibility of North Korea holding such a trilateral or bilateral summit is being kept open.

What Does Kim Jong-un Want?

Syria and North Korea have maintained close relations for decades.

But Kim has also conducted his own parallel outreach - holding two meetings with South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, and sending envoys to meet with teams from the South on other initiatives such as possible gatherings for families separated by the Korean War more than 60 years ago.

After the meeting with Kim on Friday, Trump said to reporters, "We did not talk about human rights, no". "This is not blackmail but reality".

Rodman has a connection to Trump, who hosted NBC's reality TV show, "The Apprentice".
