Timeline: Trump's turbulent Twitter commentary on Kim Jong Un

Former NBA basketball player Dennis Rodman and Chris Volo right arrive at Singapore's Changi Airport on Tuesday

Dismantling a secret nuclear arsenal built up over decades would take several years and be extremely hard to check, they say. Trump showed Kim the movie on an iPad during their talks.

The eccentric former reality television star is one of the few westerners to have spent time with Kim during multiple visits to Pyongyang and the two struck up an unlikely friendship over their shared love of basketball.

Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the USA -based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, and Rabbi Abraham Cooper at the Simon Wiesenthal Center urged Trump to seek "the complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement" of North Korean political prison camps - mimicking the formulation used by the U.S.in its demand for that nation's denuclearization.

President Trump has said the best-case scenario is not going to resolve all these issues.

Rodman, who was once a contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice", said he once gave Kim a copy of Trump's book "The Art of the Deal" to help him understand the U.S. president better.

After the men shook hands, they repaired inside for one-on-one talks. Only after that initial personal session will national security officials join the meeting. She also led a large North Korean art troupe sent to South Korea during the February Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. In question is Pyongyang's precise commitment to nuclear disarmament, and the security guarantees the United States is willing to offer in return.

"I am. confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification", Pompeo said, saying the initial agreement between Trump and Kim had not captured all of what had been agreed by the two sides. The language in that document has been the fraught topic of discussion at the 11th-hour negotiations. The isolated country views this summit as a sign that North Korea is a significant player on the world stage, able to hold its own against more powerful countries.

"I just think it's going to work out very nicely", Trump said on Monday, although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail. But Trump has notably avoided calling out authoritarian leaders on human rights when he wants closer ties with them, whether it's adversaries like China and Russian Federation or allies like Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. At the same time, he'd admitted he doesn't believe he requires extensive preparation to take stock of Kim. He had earlier been scheduled to leave on Wednesday.

The Trump-Hannity chat will air at 9 p.m. Tuesday on "Hannity". Before he leaves he'll sit for an interview with his friend, the Fox host Sean Hannity, and convene a media availability for other reporters.

Trump and Kim, who have traded a volley of insults and even threatened each other of nuclear war, are meeting at Capella Hotel, a five-star resort on Singapore's Sentosa Island. The official cautioned, however, that the schedule could always change if meeting goes well and there is more to discuss.

Though Mr Pompeo refused to go into details, he made it clear that the guarantees would go further than the 2005 agreement in which the USA pledged not to attack North Korea with nuclear or conventional weapons. Trump is pushing for complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation - considered the gold standard among arms control experts. "We've been waiting for one nation since we've been separated".

Trump predicted that he and Kim will have a "terrific relationship", while Kim spoke of a new start. It did not include an agreement to take steps toward ending the technical state of warfare between the US and North Korea.

Liberal South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun sought to continue the legacy of his predecessor Kim Dae-jung by pursuing friendly relations and cooperation with the North.

More than 2,500 journalists have convened here, with each leader's every movement tracked carefully.

When Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe flew to Washington last week, he delivered an urgent message to President Trump ahead of tomorrow's unprecedented US-North Korea summit: Don't forget about us. There were no specifics on this, but that will be a question that the allies will certainly be interested, especially the allies of South Korea and Japan.
