Trump and Kim set to arrive for summit

Singapore is ready for the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jog Un

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are due to arrive in Singapore on Sunday ahead of a historic summit aimed at denuclearising North Korea.

After arriving, the two leaders - coming from Quebec and Pyongyang respectively - will meet separately with the host country's prime minister, Singapore's Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong would meet Kim on Sunday and Trump on Monday, the statement said.

The announcement comes as the country ramps up preparations for Tuesday's meeting, which will see a sitting US president meeting with a North Korean leader for the first time.

The talks aim to reach an agreement on Pyongyang's denuclearisation in exchange for the easing of diplomatic and economic sanctions.

Trump appeared confident about the upcoming talks with Kim, tweeting on Saturday after leaving the G7 summit in Canada that it was a chance to "achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World".

"I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before... create peace and great prosperity for his land!" he wrote.
