Trump Kim summit: North Korea sets out its Singapore agenda

Trump Kim summit: North Korea sets out its Singapore agenda

Totalitarian North Korea's governing ideology of "Juche", which champions self-sufficiency, has brought little but decades of economic stagnation, widespread poverty and, at times, starvation.

Who are the key players in the North Korea regime and how are they related to the Supreme Leader? Now North Korean officials will nearly certainly emphasise preventing any sudden mishaps in Kim Jong Un's first visit to a foreign country other than China or South Korea since taking power, said Kim Doo-hyun, professor of protection politics at Korea National Sport University.

North Korea is one of the most insular states in the world and command and control of its nuclear facilities is kept within a tight, impenetrable circle.

"The biggest nightmare for Japan is that Kim declares his intention to relinquish the intercontinental ballistic missiles that he quickly developed previous year and Trump simply hails the offer as 'great, ' making no further demands", said Matake Kamiya, a professor of worldwide politics at the National Defense Academy.

The US president hopes the summit will kick-start a process that eventually sees Mr Kim give up nuclear weapons. Kim is, essentially, upsetting two decades of carefully choreographed North Korean statecraft and stepping into the unknown. "But it is something that we absolutely will do because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around". Trump has expressed some concern about China's influence.

Kim, one of the world's most reclusive leaders, made an evening tour of sites on Singapore's waterfront, on the eve of the summit that is due to get underway on Tuesday morning at a nearby resort island.

On several occasions in May, the United States had said it was likely that the meeting would be delayed, but the biggest hurdle was when the U.S. had called off the summit. "And, number two, Trudeau should have known better". "And you can be sure that President Trump will not stand for a bad deal".

Singapore summit: Kim's running bodyguards back in action

Police officers escorting the motorcade of North Korea leader Kim Jong Un park after he arrives at the Istana, or Presidential Palace, in Singapore on Sunday, June 10, 2018, to meet Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

The rhetoric earned stiff rebukes from other G-7 attendees.

Mr. Pompeo on Monday declined to respond to a question about whether there was a "special place in hell" for Mr. Trudeau.

The feud threatened to overshadow one of the most highly anticipated diplomatic meetings in recent memory, as the president spent his first full day in Singapore with a relatively light public schedule.

But after Mr. Trump left the summit he announced he was pulling out of the statement, citing statements by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a post-summer press conference, where Mr. Trudeau said Canada had been "insulted" by Mr. Trump justifying his tariffs on national-security grounds. "We will be sure to be cost conscious, and we will also be sure that we will do what is necessary to make this a safe meeting", he said.

He teased forward to Tuesday's "very interesting" meeting and predicted a good outcome. He described it as a "get to know you plus" meeting. "I think things could work out very nicely", he said.

He was greeted by Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan as he stepped off his plane.
