A one time shot, Trump says of summit with N Korea

Kim Jong Un impersonator held by Singapore immigration Trump-Kim summit: What to expect when the U.S., North Korean leaders come face to face

But the first-ever meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader will surpass them all in the sheer spectacle, a summit of global significance timed to begin squarely during prime time in the United States on Monday evening, a strategic decision by the ratings-conscious president.

Sean Kim can't wait for the summit. "I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said of the scheduled Tuesday meeting in Singapore.

Oh Ei Sun, who studies regional foreign policy, said it was such self-effacement that made Singapore the top pick for the talks.

"We'll raise every issue", he said.

It's a life-changing event.

Mr. Kim has taken only one known overseas trip by air since becoming leader in 2011 and the Ilyushin-76 cargo plane accompanied his personal Ilyushin-62M jet to Dalian in China in May.

While Trump's allies have called his unpredictability a negotiating strength that keeps his opponents off balance, some White House aides have expressed concern that the president will not heed talking points in his briefing materials.

"We might see a similar scale of security personnel from North Korea and safety protocols as we did in April, but they'll also have help from Singapore like special vehicles and agents", said Cho Seong-ryoul, senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Strategy.

He paid tribute to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is pro-unification, for bringing the unconventional leaders together.

There's just no recent precedent for the gamble Kim Jong Un is taking.

The North agreed to scrap its nuclear programme, rejoin the NPT and accept foreign nuclear monitors in exchange for food and energy aid- plus the eventual normalisation of relations with the United States and a peace deal formally ending the Korean War. "It's a one-time shot", he said at a press conference, adding that the North Koreans had been working "very well with us" ahead of the summit.

The North invaded the South in 1950 and the ensuing war saw the US-led United Nations troops backing Seoul fight their way to a stalemate against Pyongyang's forces which were aided by Russian Federation and China, before the conflict ended in stalemate and an armistice which sealed the division of the peninsula.

"I think within the first minute I'll know", Trump said.

"As well as that there are public executions, there are chronic food shortages, people actually starve to death".

While running for president, Trump repeatedly said that he believed marijuana legalization should be up to states. That forces a multibillion dollar industry to operate all in cash. "That's bad for business and bad for safety".

His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next. He had 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, which isn't bad when you consider he was playing with only one hand.

"Even if they cheat on handing over nuclear weapons, possibly cheat on freezing uranium production, there can be a certain amount of cheating and we can still be better off", Kristof says.

Raymond Ferguson can't wait for the leaders to meet.

"That's a ideal deal for North Korea. It was fun to see them", he said. "The people of Canada are wonderful, and it's a great country, and a very attractive country". After being placed on the list, designated persons are typically unable to use most worldwide financial systems and are forbidden from traveling to the United States.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated USA calls for North Korea to completely rid itself of all remnants of its nuclear weapons program before global sanctions are lifted on the pariah nation.

"It gives me an indication that the hostility by the average Australians against the DPRK is reducing and there's more interest in learning about the country".

Trump and Kim could announce an agreement on a peace treaty, something that was mentioned in a then-landmark 2005 nuclear deal that later fell apart.

Each year, talented North Korean refugees living in South Korea vie for a scholarship to study English as part of 22-week intensive course run by the University of Technology Sydney.

North Korea's secrecy would make it hard to end its nuclear program quickly, said Robert Einhorn, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

Engagement is the only option.
But it's unclear what the USA will get out of it. President Trump has said his goal is to get North Korea to agree to a complete denuclearization, and if not, he's prepared to impose harsh sanctions. We have a great relationship.

Matt Kulesza has worked as a tour guide at Young Pioneer tours for the last two years, helping scores of tourists satisfy their curiosity about the mysterious North Korea.

Asked how he would be able to make such a distinction, he said: "My touch, my feel".

Mr Kulesza said he was excited about Tuesday's summit and the potential it has to improve the lives of North Koreans.

But classmates of the future president said that while there, he got a firsthand taste of the terrors of the atomic age.

While he famously attended school in Switzerland, traveling this far as supreme leader is an entirely different matter for someone used to being the most revered, most protected, most deferred to human in his country of 25 million.
