Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has described Kim as a confident young leader as the two leaders prepare to meet each other later today.

Kim and Trump arrived in Singapore yesterday to allow time to prepare for their meeting, the first‑ever between a sitting US President and North Korean leader and one that North Korea hopes will forge new relations between the two countries.
