Trump Takes Lead on North Korea Denuclearization

The Southeast Asian city-state is set to host an historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un will meet on the morning of June 12 for talks

Trump's meeting with Kim was tentatively scheduled for 9:00 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) on June 12.

Abe doesn't want Trump to strike a compromise that would leave Japan exposed to shorter-range missiles that do not threaten the USA mainland or that relieves pressure on North Korea before it takes concrete steps toward complete denuclearization.

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

The Senate Democrats also called on North Korea to end production and enrichment of uranium and plutonium for military purposes, destroy test sites, eliminate ballistic missile programs, and submit to "robust compliance inspections".

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) said it was willing to help resolve the impasse by bankrolling Kim's delegation, using part of the $1.1 million cash prize it received for winning last year's Nobel Peace Prize.

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 global diplomacy. The official handed him a letter from Kim Jong-un.

North Korea has an embassy in Singapore, but that is unlikely to be good enough to meet the logistical and security demands of a full-on summit.

On Tuesday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a Twitter post that the venue would be the Capella Hotel on Sentosa and thanked Singaporeans for their hospitality. We can go fast, we can go slowly. We are going to start a process.

Madden said any similar attempt to wrest power during the North Korean leader's absence was unlikely, pointing to Kim's previous trips to Beijing and Dalian in China, which went off without a hitch.

Some Singapore residents were concerned that the arrival of a number of leaders and diplomats could put their lives in convenience because of the summit but others remained indifferent towards it, the Global Times report said.
