Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC asked his Democratic colleagues Sunday to join him in supporting military force against North Korea if the upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un doesn't end in an agreement.

"There may be an expectation for President Trump to make small, respectful bow towards Kim Jong-Un".

From Pyongyang, the North's official media Monday carried comparatively detailed reports on leader Kim Jong-un's visit to Singapore, including his arrival date and plan to hold his first meeting with Trump on Tuesday. He said he thinks "it's going to work out very well". So far, there has been little indication that Mr. Trump will raise these issues with Kim in Singapore.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore where he will meet with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un.

"Like any middle power, Kim is aiming to be independent of any great power - both China and America - and he is already a fair way towards that goal", Mr.

Earlier on Sunday, both Trump and Kim arrived in Singapore for the US-North Korean summit. The bodyguards formed a human shield around Kim's black Mercedes limousine at the Demilitarized Zone before it drove into North Korean territory.

Kim arrived in Singapore hours before Trump arrived in Air Force One. But they hope the US won't ignore North Korea's advanced chemical and biological weapons program, as well as more conventional artillery which remains a threat to the region.

Cheng said that as Pyongyang's largest trading partner and closest ally, Beijing was in the best position to ensure the safety of the North Korean regime - Kim's top priority and a precondition for his denuclearisation pledge.

Pope Francis has prayed that the summit this week between the USA and North Korean leaders succeeds in laying the groundwork for peace. Several of the reporters who accompanied Kim to Singapore had also been to the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas for the inter-Korean summit in April.

He described the meeting scheduled for Tuesday in Singapore as a "one-time shot" for Kim, and Trump said he was about to undertake a "mission of peace" as he left the Group of Seven meeting with world leaders in Canada. "We want to surprise our daughter, who lives in MI (in the US)", he said.


Kim later met Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and was seen to be smiling broadly during the encounter.

"We were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit, and I would like to thank you for that", Kim, speaking through an interpreter, told Lee.

"The summit will represent a major diplomatic win for Mr. Trump ahead of the US midterm elections later this year".

Ms Serena Lim, 58, who is in the property industry, said: "It's an honour that Singapore was chosen to host the summit".

The meeting was initially meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, but the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know-you session.

This will be the first summit of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting USA president.

Kim Jong Un and Trump have shared a rocky relationship leading up to the summit.

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile programme that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States, insisting he would swiftly achieve what previous U.S. administrations have failed to do.

Any nuclear deal will hinge on North Korea's willingness to allow unfettered outside inspections of the country's warheads and nuclear fuel, much of which is likely kept in a vast complex of underground facilities.
