  • Dennis Rodman to Travel to Singapore for North Korea Summit

Two Indian-origin ministers in Singapore, Vivian Balakrishnan and K Shanmugam, are playing a key role in facilitating a hassle-free summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un on Tuesday.

A Trump administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USA side was entering the talks with a sense of optimism and an equal dose of skepticism given North Korea's long history of developing nuclear weapons.

Hosting the Trump-Kim summit will give Singapore publicity and says something about the country's standing in the worldwide community, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Sunday (Jun 10).

Asked if he would meet Kim in Singapore, the ex-basketball player said he thinks the North Korean leader "has bigger things to worry about than seeing me right now".

Israel said its troops were defending its border and accused Hamas of trying to carry out attacks under the cover of the protests. Israel frequently accuses Iran of fueling weeks of Gaza protests by supporting the enclave's Islamist rulers, Hamas.

The president is now in Singapore, just hours away from his historic meeting with Kim.

But on the eve of the summit, the White House unexpectedly announced Trump would depart Singapore by Tuesday evening, meaning his time with Kim would be fairly brief. It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

The two will huddle alone for roughly 45 minutes before being joined by aides for a larger meeting and working lunch.

Trump and Kim have embarked on a dramatically different approach, eschewing the bottom-up process of the past for a top-down start that the president suddenly and surprisingly agreed to when offered by the North Koreans. The North Korean leader's sister and close confidante Kim Yo Jong was among the lunch party.

Now he's in Singapore, ready to negotiate with U.S. President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump "gets along so well with ruthless, brutal dictators, but you have this acrimonious, hostile relationship with the Canadian Prime Minister?" "We're going to have to see what comes out".

Mr Trump's delegation at the luncheon included US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Laboriously negotiated past nuclear deals, considered breakthroughs at the time, broke down on North Korea's extreme sensitivity to allowing in outsiders to look at whether they're dismantling their nuclear facilities, many of which are thought to be hidden.

Tokyo's long-standing position - which it has repeatedly conveyed to Trump - is that the North should get rid of not only its ICBMs, but also its shorter-range missiles, which include hundreds of Rodongs, that can strike Japan. Kim had his own harsh words, calling the president a "mentally deranged US dotard". Trump tweeted earlier in the day. "He's one of the best negotiators of all time and I'm looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit", Rodman said.

A US official cited by Bloomberg predicted the meeting will go into the evening and potentially end with a joint resolution. Since then, the path to the summit has been rocky, with Mr Trump at one point calling it off completely.
