“Singapore is pleased to host the meeting between President of the United States Donald J Trump and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea State Affairs Commission Chairman Kim Jong Un on 12 June 2018,” MFA said in a statement.

POTUS Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un are to discuss North Korea’s denuclearization and nuclear weapon testing programme.

The official declined to say how long the first meeting is expected to last, but said it will take place prior to an expanded meeting where U.S. and North Korean officials would be in attendance.
