North Korea leader Kim arrives in Singapore ahead of Trump meeting

Singapore pays for Kim Jong Un's hotel during Trump summit

Dennis Rodman to Travel to Singapore for North Korea Summit

But just a year ago, Trump described the North Korean leader as "little rocket man", and warned of a USA military attack full of "fire and fury".

He accompanied the young leader at all four of his recent summits, twice with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and twice with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Highly unusually, North Korea's state-run media are already reporting on Mr Kim's trip to Singapore to meet Mr Trump.

As the final preparations for the summit were being made, some veteran diplomats warned against an all-or-nothing approach from the U.S. Previously, he served as intelligence chief and is believed to have been behind two attacks in 2010 that killed 50 South Koreans.

The only logical explanation for Rodman's visit to Singapore would have to do with the fact that he has been closely associated with Jong Un and Trump in the past.

About 100 reporters and Singapore residents shouted his name and took pictures with phones as Kim visited Marina Bay Sands resort, famed for its rooftop infinity pool overlooking the city. When asked about the "violence" and "negativity" perpetuated by Kim in North Korea, Rodman countered that he's "not a politician". Some observers insist that it's the beginning of the complete denuclearisation of North Korea. Trump said earlier he would know whether the summit would succeed within the first few minutes of meeting with Kim. On Monday, she met senior USA diplomat Sung Kim at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to make final preparations for the summit.

His powerful sister Kim Yo Jong, who he promoted to his regime's top decision-making body in October 2017, was also pictured outside the hotel.

What is unclear whether the summit will lead to any type of substantive outline of an agreement in which North Korea will halt its program and agree to denuclearize, and what kind of verification procedure it would accept.

The White House and State Department have said little about those talks, though people briefed on them said American negotiators found it difficult to make significant headway with the North Koreans, in part because the White House did not back them up in taking a hard line. She also attended Monday's meeting at the Ritz-Carlton hotel.

In part, these lowered expectations are a reflection of the extreme skepticism among many that the North can be persuaded to give up a nuclear programme it has stubbornly built over the decades, often in secrecy and despite intense sanctions, global condemnation and widespread suffering among its people.

Trump and Kim will meet on Singapore's Sentosa Island for roughly 45 minutes while their entourages wait nearby.
