Kim Jong-un will discuss a "permanent. peace-keeping mechanism" with US President Donald Trump when they meet on Tuesday, North Korea says.

A man rides an electric unicycle as policemen patrol along Orchard Road in Singapore, Sunday, June 10, 2018, ahead of the summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The two leaders are finally set to meet Tuesday morning (Monday night in the U.S.) at a luxury island resort in Singapore, the climax of a diplomatic roller-coaster rivaling any at the nearby Universal Studios theme park.

Many analysts have suggested that the discussion about denuclearization means very different things to North Koreans than it does to American officials. Would conventional politics have even taken us this far?

Pompeo said in an earlier tweet that Washington was "committed to the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

"We're prepared to take actions that will provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization isn't something that ends badly for them", he said.

Such characteristic caution when speaking in public notwithstanding, there is no doubt the prospect of the summit is generating a good deal of interest, and probably astonishment, among average North Koreans. It's a Short List.

At the conclusion of the summit, President Trump will participate in a media availability before departing tomorrow at approximately 8 p.m. for the United States.

In response Pyongyang said it was considering firing missiles towards the Pacific US territory of Guam.

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

At issue is whether Kim would be willing to abandon a nuclear weapons program that has advanced rapidly in recent years, posing an increasing threat to the US and its allies. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders. He credits his administration's "maximum pressure" campaign with getting Kim to the table.

Pope Francis said on Sunday he hoped a forthcoming summit in Singapore between Trump and Jong Un will lead to peace for Korea.

Meanwhile, U.S. and North Korean officials huddled at the Ritz-Carlton hotel Monday ahead of the sitdown aimed at resolving a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

Kim smiled as he took a selfie with Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan at the scenic waterfront Gardens by the Bay. "And while the countries disagreed on trade, they did seem to show a unified front on the North Korean issue, so there is also a positive element from the G7 affecting risk sentiment", said Masahiro Ichikawa, senior strategist at Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management.

Just a few months ago, Kim was an global pariah accused of ordering the killing of his uncle, a half-brother and scores of officials suspected of disloyalty. He has also said that North Korea would benefit economically after sanctions are lifted.

He added in addition to using bulletproof vehicles, North Korea's security detail would likely deploy layers of protection surrounding the summit venue and try to divert attention from Kim Jong Un's auto whenever he moves.

Many experts on North Korea, one of the most insular and unpredictable countries in the world, remain sceptical Kim will ever completely abandon nuclear weapons.
