Trump arrived in Singapore calling the summit a "one-time shot" for Kim, who is being urged to abandon his weapons program and normalize relations with the rest of the world in exchange for unspecified "protections" from the U.S. North Korea has long anxious about an American invasion and justifies its nuclear buildup as a way to defend itself.

Outside the Istana, the presidential palace where Trump met Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, well-wishers displayed American flags and a boy held up a sign reading: "I love President Trump!"

One top Trump adviser cast the move as a show of strength before the Kim meeting.

Kim was accompanied at the meeting by vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the WPK Ri Su Yong, and Colonel General No Kwang Chol - one of the three promoted in a recent North Korean military shakeup.

The Singaporean delegation also surprised the U.S. leader with a birthday cake. Shortly after arriving, Kim visited with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is scheduled to meet with Trump on Monday.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un arrived in Singapore on Sunday ahead of their Tuesday meeting.

Kim's summit with Trump has captured intense global attention after a turn to diplomacy in recent months after serious fears of war past year amid North Korean nuclear and missile tests. -North Korean leaders' meeting.

Trump flew into Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base on Sunday aboard Air Force One.

The United States and North Korea have been in a technical state of war for decades after the eruption of the 1950-1953 Korean War, which pitted U.S. -led U.N. troops backing Seoul against Pyongyang's forces that were aided by China.

"It's never been done before", Trump said of a U.S.

Trump landed in the evening after a long flight from Canada and the Group of Seven meeting there, telling Singaporean officials who welcomed him that he was feeling "very good" about the summit.

It formally referred to Trump by his full name in the Monday report, including his middle initial - the first time it has done so.

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to minimize expectations, saying additional meetings may be necessary. But he cautioned that Kim "won't have that opportunity again" if the talks do not go well - describing this opportunity for diplomacy with the United States as a "one-time shot".

It also offered a list of Pyongyang's talking points, saying Kim and Trump will exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing a new relationship, the issue of building a "permanent and durable peace mechanism" and realizing the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But there are major doubts, given how hard it has been for Kim to build his program and given that the weapons are seen as the major guarantee to his holding onto unchecked power.

North Korea wants a staged approach to dismantling its nuclear weapons program and a security guarantee from the USA in return.

A second round of meetings was planned for the afternoon as officials worked to lay the groundwork for progress to be made Tuesday on substantive issues, according to the official familiar with the preparations.

The fighting ended on 27 July, 1953, but the war technically continues today because instead of a difficult-to-negotiate peace treaty, military officers for the US -led United Nations, North Korea and China signed an armistice that halted the fighting.
