Kim may meet Xi, Putin ahead of US summit

Kim may meet Xi, Putin ahead of US summit

But Sentosa island - where the United States president and the North Korean leader will meet on 12 June - has a dark past.

Officials had also considered the Shangri-La Hotel, which hosts an annual worldwide security summit and was the venue for a 2015 meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.

Sources familiar with the arrangements said U.S. diplomats had picked the island resort, which is connected to the Singapore main island by a single causeway that can be easily closed off to traffic.

Other than announcing that the two leaders will first meet at 9 a.m. Singapore time June 12 at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island, the White House has described no schedule for the summit.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post had earlier reported that North Korea had expressed concerns over a possible coup back in Pyongyang while Kim travels to Singapore-and some saw the moves as meant to consolidate Kim loyalists at the top of the military.

Still, he left the door open to the possibility of holding the meeting as scheduled or at a later date, and U.S., South Korean and North Korean officials spent the last week of May scrambling to salvage it.

Kim Jong-un has shown similar patterns in the past from refraining from public activities as he prepared for major summits. One, on customs and protocol, primarily is assembled by the State Department and shared with much of the USA delegation.

If Trump moves forward in recognising North Korea as a nuclear power, Kim may let the IAEA inspectors visit country's atomic power units and agree to halt nuclear weaponisation programme.

The decision to hold the summit on Sentosa makes logistical sense.

In a letter to the president, seven influential Democrats warned that any outcome that would ease sanctions without a verification of Pyongyang's efforts to dismantle its nuclear and missile arsenal was "a bad deal".

National security advisers are briefing Mr Trump daily about the summit, which he wants to use as a vehicle to persuade Mr Kim to shut down North Korea's nuclear weapons program. South Korean government ministries did not confirm or deny it.

The KCNA report said Assad made the comments about a possible trip to North Korea last Tuesday while receiving the credentials of the North Korean ambassador. North Korea's state affairs commission secretariat Kim Chang Son also met Hagin at Capella after arriving in Singapore in late May to hash out details for the summit.

Most recently, he visited North Korea previous year on a "peace" mission on behalf on PotCoin, a website that facilitates legal cannabis transactions.

Russian Federation said it did not want to interfere in the diplomatic efforts of the US.
