Flight from Pyongyang lands in Singapore ahead of North Korean leader’s arrival

Singapore's hosting of the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will cost the nation "around $20 million", said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (10 June).

Trump arrived later in the day from a fraught G7 meeting with world leaders in Canada.

The bill for hosting the historic Trump-Kim summit will come up to about $20 million, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, adding that this is Singapore's contribution to an worldwide endeavour that is "in our profound interest".

Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan shared a photo that showed him Balakrishnan welcoming Kim Jong-Un to Singapore.

Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!

After cutting short his participation over the icy reception, Trump veered within hours from espousing a great relationship with the USA allies to tweeting that his host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, had been "Very dishonest & weak" in post-summit remarks.

The North Korean leader then traveled to the St. Regis Hotel - where he will be staying for the duration of the visit - in his armored limousine, which arrived on a separate flight.

Trump flew into Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base on Sunday aboard Air Force One.

It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

The summit between Kim and Trump will cap a remarkable turnaround in relations between two men who were trading furious insults less than six months ago. A source cited by Reuters, however, said that Kim is tentatively scheduled to leave Singapore at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday, suggesting the meeting could be a short affair.

"North Korea has no reason to believe that the USA would be willing or able to defend it from China", said Hugh White, an Australian defense strategist.

In advance of the summit, the USA president's favorability rating in South Korea rose 8 points, to 32 percent.

Security for Kim Jong Un at his first meeting with Trump is expected to be ultra-tight, with measures likely surpassing those seen at the April 27 inter-Korean summit, experts and analysts say.

Choi's fiery outburst at Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, and Vice President Mike Pence a fortnight ago was blamed for Trump suddenly, and briefly, cancelling the summit. "North Korea summit again", said Shim Nu-ri, a teacher who lives in Seoul.

The United States and North Korea have been in a technical state of war for decades after the eruption of the 1950-1953 Korean War, which pitted U.S. -led U.N. troops backing Seoul against Pyongyang's forces that were aided by China.

"We were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit, and I would like to thank you for that", Kim, speaking through an interpreter, told Lee.

After temporarily pulling out of the summit earlier, Trump has said he still is prepared to walk away if Kim is not committed to ending his nuclear program.

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile program that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States.

Both countries want North Korea's nuclear capabilities addressed.
