American and North Korean officials are holding intensive talks in Singapore to prepare the ground for an historic first meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.

American and North Korean officials are holding intensive talks in Singapore to prepare the ground for an historic first meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.

The leaders arrived late on Sunday and both were received at the airport by Singapore’s foreign minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, before heading to their respective luxury hotels.

“Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!” Mr Trump tweeted on Monday morning. He went on to have lunch with the Singaporean prime minister at the Istana, the country’s presidential palace, where he was given an early birthday cake (Mr Trump turns 72 on Thursday) and said Tuesday’s meeting would be “very interesting”.

Mr Kim has no official agenda for Monday, having already met prime minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday, hours after arriving on a plane loaned to North Korea by China.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim will meet in front of the world’s media at around 9am local time on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump spoke to South Korean president Moon Jae-in by telephone today ahead of the US leader’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-un.

Their conversation was confirmed by South Korea’s presidential office, known as the Blue House, which did not give further details but said it would give a briefing later.

South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said the two leaders discussed denuclearisation.

North Korean state media has raised the prospect that the nation could “establish a new relationship” with the United States as leaders of the two countries meet.
