5 latest North Korea summit developments: What you missed overnight

The jet carrying Kim landed at the airport Sunday afternoon amid huge security precautions on this city-state island. It will be the first time a sitting US president has met with a North Korean leader.

The US President is at Singapore's government house with the country's leader Lee Hsien Loong finalising preparations before the historic Trump-Kim summit.

"The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected", the White House said in a statement.

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore Sunday ahead of a highly anticipated summit.

As the leader of a newly minted nuclear state, much less is known about how Kim maintains control of his nuclear arsenal while he travels.

Part of the interest in Tuesday's summit is simply because Kim has had such limited appearances on the world stage.

"The Police seek the understanding and cooperation of the public as these measures are necessary to ensuring the security of the summit", it added.

French chef recounts serving Anthony Bourdain before his death
The mixed martial arts fighter was married to Anthony for nine years before they split in 2016 because of his busy schedule. Just days before the " Parts Unknown " host's death, fashion designer Kate Spade committed suicide in NY .

But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

Sentosa, where the meeting between Trump and Kim will be held, is a former British military fort and now, a tourist attraction with a Universal Studio theme park. He has also raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement ending the Korea War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty.

"Trump will hype this relentlessly, no matter what comes of it", tweeted Robert E Kelly, a political science professor at Pusan National University in South Korea who is town to comment on the summit for the BBC.

North Korea is one of the most insular states in the world and command and control of its nuclear facilities is kept within a tight, impenetrable circle. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.

The two are due to meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa for their high-stakes summit, the first-ever talks between a US and North Korean leader and the culmination of a head-spinning diplomatic dance.

On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested U.S. sanctions and other worldwide pressure will continue until North Korea takes steps toward denuclearization. "Kim must not see American weakness". The ensuing recognition as a "normal country" could then allow sanctions relief, and later global aid and investment.
