North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S President Donald Trump arriving in Singapore

U.S President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are staying less than a kilometre away from each other in five‑star hotels, and will meet today at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore at 2pm today.

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.

North Korea state media has reported that leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump will discuss denuclearization and establishing a "durable peace‑keeping mechanism" on the Korean Peninsula during their historic summit 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.

Trump tweeted yesterday "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air".

Security is tight throughout Singapore, with armed police roaming the streets and motorcades of the international delegations bringing traffic to a standstill.
