Excitement high, expectations lower on Trump-Kim summit eve

Analysis: Why wit and wisdom are the most likely tactics from Kim Jong Un’s playbook

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "could work out very nicely", as both sides sought to narrow differences over how to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.

Around this time previous year, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was getting ready to test his country's first intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the USA mainland.

Staff-level meetings between the United States and North Korea were going "well and quickly", Mr Trump said in a message on Twitter on Tuesday.

Trump needs to walk away from the meeting "with some sort of document", says Joel Wit, a former State Department official who's negotiated with Kim's representatives - and it must include the word "denuclearization".

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new US-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. Them he departs for the U.S.in the evening.

South Korea's presidential office says Trump filled Moon on the details of the pre-summit negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang.

At 4pm Singapore time the US President will hold a press conference on the day's events. "Tomorrow, we will get our clearest indication to date whether Chairman Kim Jong-un shares this vision", Pompeo said. "We have developed a special bond", he said.

The main goals of the summit, Pompeo said, are establishing diplomatic relations with North Korea and the termination of the North Korean nuclear program. Analysts say Kim's diplomatic outreach in recent months after a flurry of nuclear and missile tests in 2017 indicates he is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and the worldwide legitimacy the summit with Trump would provide.

And President Trump has plenty of good reasons to put on a good show in Singapore.

Trump will meet Tuesday morning with Kim, with only translators present.

North Korea has said it is willing to commit to denuclearisation, but that term is open to interpretation.
