"The complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear programme is the only outcome the United States will accept", he said.

He insisted the USA would accept nothing less than complete denuclearisation.

There have been failed diplomatic attempts by US presidents for decades to stifle North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

A U.S. official confirmed to CNN Trump's departure was moved up by more than 12 hours because Kim set his own departure for shortly after the summit, as first reported by Bloomberg.

Washington hopes the summit will kick-start a process that eventually leads to denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

"The ultimate objective we seek with diplomacy with North Korea has not changed", Pompeo said.

He would not be drawn on what might be on offer.

Top members of Trump's administration have said that the North Koreans wouldn't receive any benefits before taking steps to denuclearize - wary of falling into the same predicament that doomed previous agreements with the rogue regime.

Kim Jong Un has arrived in Singapore ahead of a historic summit with US President Donald Trump - and he brought his toilet. But in the unpredictable Trump era, their Tuesday morning summit in Singapore seems a fitting next chapter for the two heads of state. It wants a reciprocal step-by-step process in which North Korean concessions are met with substantive United States commitments in other related areas. The article titled 'Trump and Kim - The meeting the world's been waiting for' also noted one subject that went untouched by other media houses - "What will nearly certainly NOT be talked about is North Korea's human rights record". As a rule, they would only report on the leader's movements after the event.

Kim held a meeting with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong ahead of the planned summit.

For decades the USA has been a sworn enemy. But at Pompeo's two meetings with Kim in Pyongyang earlier this year, the translator role was filled by Andrew Kim, a Korean-American and former CIA Seoul station chief. And that was some of its milder language. "[South Korean] "decapitation" military exercises, and support for important cooperative efforts such as vital humanitarian assistance, parliamentarian dialogue and exchanges, reunions between Koreans and Korean American families, and the repatriation of US service member remains", they wrote. North Korea has spent decades building up a nuclear arsenal at great cost.

According to FlightRadar24, a website that tracks the flights of various aircraft, thousands of people followed the progress of Kim Jong-un's plane. "We'll see how far we get". Trump had earlier tweeted about "excitement in the air!" "We have the potential now to go from "fire and fury" with regards to this issue to potentially peace and prosperity". Meanwhile, Mr Kim has called Mr Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard". Soon after, Mr Kim declared that his country had achieved its mission of becoming a nuclear state, with missiles that could reach the US.
