Trump-Kim summit to be held on Singapore's Sentosa island
SINGAPORE 6 Jun (ANA) - The much-anticipated meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place at a hotel on the Singaporean island of Sentosa, the White House has confirmed.
The 12 June summit was called off two weeks ago by Mr Trump but has since been salvaged after a flurry of contacts between the two sides.
Mr Trump said on Tuesday that plans were "moving along very nicely".
The US wants Mr Kim to commit to giving up his nuclear weapons.
But it is unclear exactly what is on the table for the discussions in Singapore. Mr Trump has suggested the first meeting will kick off a longer process of negotiations, calling it a "get-to-know-you situation".
"A lot of relationships being built, a lot of negotiations going on before the trip," he told reporters on Tuesday. "It's very important - it'll be a very important couple of days."
The summit would represent the first ever meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting US president.(ANA)
