North Korean state media said Monday that leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump will discuss "a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula", as well as the denuclearization of the peninsula, normalizing bilateral ties and other "issues of mutual concern" at their historic summit Tuesday in Singapore.
The summit, the first time a sitting USA president meets a North Korean leader, was almost called off just two weeks before the event.
Choi's fiery outburst at Trump's national security advisor John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence had a fortnight ago been blamed for Trump suddenly, and briefly, cancelling the summit.
It "would instead lay out practical steps with requisite commitments from North Korea that demonstrate that it understands, accepts and is committed to achieving denuclearisation as the United States defines it", said Enos, who is also in Singapore to watch the proceedings.
"Welcomed Chairman Kim Jong-Un, who has just arrived in Singapore", Balakrishnan tweeted.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore Sunday afternoon, while US President Donald Trump flew in hours later in the evening.
Trump has had recent discussions with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping - who all have vested interests in the outcome - about matters he plans to raise. "We have to get denuclearisation, we have to get something going".
Trump and Kim touched down on a sweltering early summer day in Singapore, the city-state founded in the early 19th Century as a British colony because of its position at the intersection of sea lanes between Europe and Asia.

Security is tight ahead of the summit between two unpredictable men who in the past have threatened to destroy the other's country during the stand-off over North Korea's nukes.
While the main attraction of the summit will inevitably be the historic meeting between Trump and Kim, that wasn't the first world leader he met with on this trip.
"It's never been done before", Trump said of a U.S.
During the flight from Canada to Singapore, the president spent time meeting with his staff, reading materials, and preparing for his meetings in Singapore.
Despite the initial high stakes of a meeting meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know meeting. Last week, Trump expressed his hope for the normalization of relations with Pyongyang following the summit and did not rule out the signing of a peace treaty between the two countries. But many say this is highly unlikely, 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.
The tone heading into the meetings is positive, but the risk that things will go awry is also very real. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.
Perhaps he'll offer to withdraw the 28,000 American troops stationed in South Korea, Haenle said, or to pull back the so-called nuclear umbrella of protection Washington offers allies South Korea and Japan.
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.
