North Korea delegation enjoys fruits of Singapore's capitalism

Mike Pompeo draws firm line on North Korea as summit hangs in balance

The unraveling of the Canada summit meeting increases the North Korean leader's incentive to "up his asks and limit his compromises and for Trump to do the opposite", Richard Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said on Twitter, adding, "Hardly the ideal context". Ghasemi said US President Donald Trump's actions in abandoning the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and other worldwide agreements, had shown he was an unreliable partner.

North Korea tends to keep its official government commentary on the pages of Rodong Sinmun, which routinely threatened nuclear annihilation of the American mainland a year ago.

Watching Trudeau's press conference from Air Force One on his way to Singapore, Trump took umbrage at the Canadian leader's voter-tailored message and angrily rejected the communique.

President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un, the White House said Monday, declaring that nuclear talks with North Korea have moved "more quickly than expected". "But they did [on Monday]", the source said, forecasting that the Singapore summit is likely to be declared a "success".

Discussions would focus on "the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean peninsula, the issue of realising the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern", KCNA said.

The national security adviser's previous remark that disarmament should follow the "Libya model" embraced by Moammar Qaddafi - who after giving up his nuclear weapons was later overthrown and killed in a US-backed uprising - prompted an angry reply from Pyongyang.

Earlier today, Trump met with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Istana house.

Stating that the United States would not again be duped by North Korea, Pompeo said the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation.

Aquarius: What's happening to the migrants on the rescue ship?
He added: "It will be necessary to sit down and discuss how to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future". The migrants were rescued in six separate nighttime operations in the central Mediterranean on Saturday.

The North Korean delegation is staying at the five-star St. Regis hotel where the lobby has a cream-colored marble floor, chandeliers and large art works on the walls.

For the US president, the reality show-like pageantry of the Singapore summit is the chief concern.

"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearise and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", he said. After greeting each other - an image sure to be devoured around the world - the two leaders planned to sit for a one-on-one meeting that a USA official said could last up to two hours, with only translators joining them.

Asked whether he would invite Kim to the White House, Trump said: "Absolutely, I will". He described it as a "get to know you plus" meeting.

The working-level talks resumed late at night after the two sides left the hotel earlier in the day following less than five hours of negotiations.

They had appeared cautious and serious when they first arrived for the summit at the Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa, a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, man-made beaches and a Universal Studios theme park. North Korea may or may not be able to hit Washington with a nuclear-tipped ICBM.

Trump and Kim will be making history here on Tuesday morning when they shake hands for the first time.

United States planes dropped approximately 635,000 tons of explosives on North Korea (more in three years than they did in the entire Pacific theater of World War II), including 32,000 tons of napalm, according to historian Charles Armstrong.
