The location and date of the landmark meeting - the first ever between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader - were announced by presidential tweet just hours after North Korea released three American prisoners.
The United States and North Korea are technically still at war - a stop-gap armistice ended the brutal three-year Korean war in 1953 and around 30,000 American troops remain in neighboring South Korea, which the U.S. supported in the conflict.
Among the biggest concerns is a question of sequence: The U.S.so far has insisted that North Korea completely abandon its nuclear program before the Trump administration eases its "maximum pressure campaign" of sanctions and diplomatic isolation.

Kim had revealed plans to shut down the nuclear test site during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month.
Journalists asked Pompeo what such a denuclearization would look like and if it meant carrying out inspections in North Korean nuclear plants.
North Korea's state news agency criticized the Japanese government Saturday for urging a resolution to the issue of Pyongyang's abductions of Japanese nationals, claiming that the issue has already been resolved. The breakthrough came after landmark talks between North and South Korea.
But he added: "I'm confident that we have a shared understanding of the outcome that the leaders want - certainly President Trump and chairman Kim, but I think president Moon as well". Mongolia was considered but was seen as too close to China, they said.
