The meeting comes after a flurry of diplomatic activity on the Korean Peninsula this year, with hopes high that an understanding might be reached with Pyongyang over its nuclear program.

Singapore is 12 hours ahead of Washington, D.C.

Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get USA troops off the Korean Peninsula and, eventually, pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Sunday that Trump's public show of frustration with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other allies was part of a larger plan.

Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the U.S. and North Korea.

"No", he said, "I don't feel unsafe".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump have arrived in Singapore for an unprecedented summit.

Trump himself seemed optimistic as well.

Aboard Air Force One en route to Singapore, Trump tweeted, "I look forward to meeting [Kim] and have a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!"

He said on Thursday that he didn't think he had to prepare very much for the summit and that "it's about attitude". "We appreciate your hospitality and professionalism and friendship". But Trump has lashed out at reporters for suggesting that the meeting with Kim will result in him giving up any negotiating leverage.

The first came early in the day, showing a glimpse of his morning briefing with Ambassador Sung Kim, the South Korean-born American diplomat who is the U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines.

On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested U.S. sanctions and other global pressure will continue until North Korea takes steps toward denuclearization. His arrival followed a dramatic departure from the G7 summit in Canada.

During the meeting, the officials also celebrated Trump's birthday.

Shanmugam is Singapore's Minister for Law and Home Affairs and he has the responsibility to make sure that the summit, the first between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean top leader, goes without a hitch from the security point of view.

"The senior officials of the party and government sincerely wished Kim Jong Un good successes in the first summit meeting and talks between the DPRK and the USA and his safe return", the KCNA said.

Of this, half is on security, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Sunday.

They first met one-on-one before expanding the group for a working lunch.
