United States president Donald Trump and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un touched down in Singapore on Sunday for their historic summit, where topics like nuclear disarmament and Korean reunification are on the table.

His leading role may signify the Korea-centric view that North Korea takes of these interactions.

"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the U.S. and his safe return", the KCNA said.

Historically, Pyongyang has wanted the USA to remove its "nuclear umbrella" protecting South Korea and Japan. On the US side, Trump was to be joined by Pompeo, chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser John Bolton and US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, along with a few others.

But amid the flurry of diplomacy on the peninsula triggered by the Winter Olympics, Kim reached out to his estranged protector, appearing suddenly in Beijing in March to finally pay his respects to Xi Jinping - six years after inheriting power. By sitting down with an American president - a longtime goal of North Korea's government - Kim's regime is advancing its effort to establish its "reputation, respect, and credibility as a nuclear weapon state", Green said.

Sebastian Gorka said Monday that President Trump's historic summit with Kim Jong Un can yield two large results.

The summit represents a major gamble for each leader, a high-wire act that carries the elevated potential for risk and reward that Trump has become increasingly comfortable with.

The White House said the summit was to kick off at 9 am Tuesday. "The complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korea peninsula is the only outcome that the United States will accept".

The North has faced diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the United States and North Korea.

Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits.

Pompeo has maintained that complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization is the "only outcome" acceptable to the USA and that the Trump administration hopes ultimately to reach an agreement with the North Koreans that it can submit to Congress "so that when administrations do change, as they inevitably do, and this one will ... that Chairman Kim will have comfort that American policy will continue down the same path". "But I think something positive has to come out of the first meeting".

In short, the US wants Kim to agree to give up his atomic weapons.

Trump, nevertheless, on nearly a daily basis says and writes things that are demonstrably untrue ― sometimes doing so even though he knows what he is saying is untrue. It will be hard to live up to an April tweet in which he declared, "We haven't given up anything & they have agreed to denuclearization", as if the ultimate deal were already done. -North Korea summit in Singapore. In an op-ed, the Associated Press has expressed doubts that Kim "would fully relinquish his nuclear arsenal, which he may see as the guarantor of his survival".
