North Korea media breaks tradition to report summit

Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan (Bal-a-krish-nan) says Kim went to the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore on Monday night. Shortly after arriving, Kim visited with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is scheduled to meet with Trump on Monday.

You would never know something as historic as the Trump-Kim summit was about to happen in the city state of Singapore.

Kim Yo Jong, believed to be 30 and one of the North Korean leader's closest confidants, reportedly arrived at Singapore's Changi Airport about an hour after the despot's Chinese charter plane touched down.

Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the United States and North Korea.

The official did not rule out the possibility that additional activities could be added to tomorrow's schedule, beyond the two planned meetings with Kim, ABC News' Jordyn Phelps reports.

When the two meet in Singapore for high-stakes nuclear negotiations, Trump will be accompanied, as always, by a staffer carrying his "button" in the form of the "nuclear football" containing equipment used to authorize a strike.

"It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before".

On the summit's eve, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo drew a firm line, saying the USA plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.

Donald Trump has made a decision to leave his historic summit with Kim Jong-un 15 hours earlier than expected, flying back to Washington on Tuesday night instead of Wednesday morning.

Olivia Enos of the US -based Heritage Foundation is urging Trump to not ignore rights concerns. Its outcome could prove pivotal in determining whether the two nations pursue a lasting peace or a fresh military conflict.

Authorities imposed tight security around the summit venue and related luxury hotels - including installing extra pot plants outside Kim's expected accommodation to obstruct reporters' views.

Authorities have beefed up security around the hotels where Trump and Kim (Saint Regis) will be staying in central Singapore.

Larry Kudlow, Trump's economic adviser, said Sunday on CNN that Trudeau's criticism had damaged Trump's prestige before the summit - and that's why Trump reacted so strongly. Mr Kim is reported to be flying out even earlier, at 2pm local time.

In a statement Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said: "I want to pay a particular tribute to Prime Minister Trudeau for his leadership and skillful chairing".

"I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World", Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.
