Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The North Korea-USA Summit In Singapore

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore for their historical meeting.

Since the success of the North and South Korea peace summit and the announcement of a summit between North Korea and the U.S, the world has been holding its collective breath waiting for the meeting to take place.


In anticipation of the event, press from all over the world descended upon Singapore on Saturday.

Notably, North Korean camera crews were swamped by other reporters!


After the attention of the North Korean camera crews, the following day had its own exciting moments. A private Chinese jet made a stop in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, before heading to Singapore. This led many to speculate that the craft was carrying North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

A flight tracker caught sight of this private jet heading to Singapore.


A few hours later, Kim Jong Un touched down in Singapore and was greeted by Singapore’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan.


Following his arrival, he met with Singapore’s Prime Minster Lee Hsien Loong. The two held their own bilateral meeting during this time.

Kim reportedly praised the host country saying, “For this historical summit, Singapore has provided the necessary conditions for it to take place.


The North Korean leader’s arrival and subsequent meeting weren’t the only events to take place. Five hours after the Kim Jong Un landed, U.S. President Donald Trump made his own arrival on the island country.

He was also greeted by Vivian Balakrishnan.


Previously President Trump had tweeted on his anticipation for the meeting.


While it seems that the excitement for the day would have ended with the arrival of both leaders, it wasn’t going to be that way. Two reporters for KBS were expelled from Singapore after being accused of trespassing on a North Korean ambassadors residence.

Two others are currently being investigated.


With that, the excitement has ended for Sunday but President Trump will be having his own bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Lee on Monday.

The two previously met in 2017.


Following his meeting, Trump and Kim Jong Un will be holding their meeting on Tuesday in the hopes of reaching a deal on dismantling North Korea’s nuclear weapons program in exchange for a security guarantee.

Now we just have to wait and see what will happen!
