Singapore: NKorea outlines its summit agenda

 

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will discuss a “permanent… peace-keeping mechanism” with US President Donald Trump when they meet on Tuesday, the North’s KCNA news agency says.

Both leaders have arrived in Singapore in preparation for their much anticipated, historic first encounter.

Mr. Kim said “the entire world [was] watching” while Mr. Trump said he had a good feeling about the summit.

According to a statement released by the KCNA, the two leaders would discuss a “permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism” for the Korean Peninsula, the “denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern.

A “changed era” had come about, it said.

The US has always said it wants North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons but it is not clear what Pyongyang might want in return.

The BBC has confirmed that the two leaders are staying in separate hotels, not far from each other, on Singapore’s resort island of Sentosa.

Mr. Kim is staying at Singapore’s five-star St Regis hotel, while Mr. Trump is staying about half a mile away at the Shangri La.
