Kim arrived with his notorious running security detail

It was reported last month that South Korean President Moon Jae-in might join in the talks between Kim and Trump if their summit in Singapore proves successful.

Kim added that "if the summit produces positive outcomes, then the Singaporean government's effort will be recorded in history forever".

But it's Kim's pursuit of nuclear weapons that gives his meeting with Trump such high stakes.

The area includes the summit venue, Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island and the places around Shangri-La Hotel and the St. Regis Hotel where Trump and Kim are expected to stay, respectively.

Despite an enormous level of excitement amongst the general population both on the ground in Singapore and across the world at the prospect for nuclear disarmament and an end to the war between North and South Korea, expectations have been tempered by those involved.

He said he did not discuss a possible meeting venue with Trump but "many" countries including Austria were keen to help in organising such a summit.

Muguruza dominates Sharapova, Halep also into French Open semifinals
Keys will have to be patient in this semi-final, and only pull the trigger when she's ready to finish off the point. She is one of two semi-finalists - alongside Garbine Muguruza - who are yet to drop a set this fortnight in Paris .

Richardson, who has extensive experience negotiating with North Korea, advised Trump to take Kim aside during their meeting and talk to him one on one.

They were given a "stern warning" before being expelled on Saturday, police said in a statement soon after North Korean leader Kim landed in the city-state.

Meanwhile, Trump left the G7 summit in Canada earlier than scheduled and arrived at Paya Lebar Air Base in Singapore at 8:22 p.m. local time on Air Force One.

Ambassador Sung Kim, the State Department's top Korea expert, met Choe Son-hui, the North's vice foreign minister, at the Ritz Carlton hotel in the morning.

"We have a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I think things can work out very nicely", he said.

North Korea has so far presented Kim's sudden diplomatic overtures to his neighbors and to the United States as a logical next step following what Kim has claimed is the completion of his plan to develop a credible nuclear deterrent to what Pyongyang has long claimed is a policy of hostility and "nuclear blackmail" by Washington.

Rafael Nadal reveals ‘suffering’ ahead of Dominic Thiem French Open clash
Everybody, including Thiem on Friday, chatters about what a awful chore it must be to beat him in best-of-five. Nadal saved three break points at 1-all in the opening set and another three at 4-all.

Officials remain uncertain what will come out of Tuesday's unprecedented summit, the first of its kind between a sitting US president and the leader of North Korea.

But in early 2018, North Korea began attempts to improve relations with South Korea by sending a team and delegates to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

But many say this is highly unlikely, given how hard it has been for Kim to build his program and given that the weapons are seen as the major guarantee to his holding onto unchecked power.

There is also the question of what will become of North Korea's short and medium-range ballistic missiles, which has been a great concern for North Korea's neighbors, including Japan.

Kim held summits with Chinese President Xi Jinping in March and May ahead of the meeting with Trump.
