Trump and Kim meet where fantasy castle built on the hill

In this handout provided by Ministry of Communications and Information of Singapore North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives in Singapore

A White House statement confirmed that Trump and the reclusive North Korean leader will meet at 9 a.m. local time on Tuesday (9 p.m. ET on Monday) in Singapore.

Rodong said Kim is in Singapore to work on 'establishing new DPRK-U.S. relations... building a durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula...realizing the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern'.

Singapore, doing its bit to promote peace, has said it expects to spend about S$20 million ($15 million) on hosting the summit, including the North Koreans' hotel bill, Singapore's foreign minister told the BBC.

"People call it a historic summit but.it is important to understand that this summit was available to any USA president who wanted to do it and the point is no US president wanted to do this, and for good reasons", said Christopher Hill, a former lead US nuclear negotiator with North Korea.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will shake hands for a photo-op unimaginable only a few months ago.

Trump hopes the landmark talks will kick-start a process that eventually see Kim give up his nuclear weapons in an irreversible manner that can be verified internationally.

In the United States created the world’s most powerful supercomputer, Summit
According to Tech Crunch, the computer will feature 4,608 compute servers, 22 IBM Power9 chips andsix Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs each. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the supercomputer elevates its ranking to the top of the list.

The guards must be about the same height as Kim, BBC said.

Pompeo said the United States is prepared to take actions to provide North Korea with "sufficient certainty" that denuclearization "is not something that ends badly for them".

In his debut speech at the United Nations last September, Trump derided Kim as a "rocket man" on a "suicide mission for himself and for his regime".

That could precede a full treaty which would raise complex issues needing extensive negotiation, and would need to involve China, which backed the North during the conflict and is a signatory to the armistice.

Mr Trump has said he has a "good feeling" about Tuesday's much-anticipated summit.

President Trump's first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be held one-on-one, according to a White House official.

He may be staying at the St. Regis Hotel, where China's President Xi Jinping once stayed.

Kim also gets an "obvious and immediate win" by simply meeting with Trump, writes Joseph Yun, who was the top USA diplomat on North Korea until March.

Kim has shown surprising diplomatic skills in his meetings with overseas leaders this year. "You would start at least a dialogue, because, you know, as a deal person, I have done very well with deals". "North Korea's nuclear command, control, communications and intelligence is configured to promote a high degree of centralisation in Kim's decision-making, it beggars belief that Kim would not be within secure reach to authorise a possible launch if required", O'Neil added.

A defiant North Korea carried out its sixth nuclear test in September 2017.

The insult, equivalent to calling Trump an "old lunatic", was a response to Washington's threat to "totally destroy" North Korea and came at the height of the war of words between the two foes.

"If you just look at it as, 'Give up your stuff, ' that framework is why we've been banging our head against the wall for so long", said John Delury, a North Korea scholar at Yonsei University in Seoul.
