    According to Reuters, the DPRK's Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump will discuss a "permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism" on the Korean Peninsula, as well as denuclearization.

    According to Bloomberg, Trump will attempt to conduct a one-on-one meeting with the North Korean leader at the beginning of the historic summit. According to the media outlet, citing sources, the US president has asserted that this would be a crucial moment of whether a deal with Pyongyang is likely.

    Kim Jong-un is reportedly accompanied by his foreign minister Ri Yong Ho, defense minister No Kwang Chol and sister Kim Yo Jong.

    According to South Korean media reports, the South Korean President Moon Jae-in has dispatched his senior officials to Singapore in a bid to aid the upcoming summit.

    South Korean officials were engaged as mediators in talks between Washington and Pyongyang devoted to preparations of the long-anticipated meeting between the US president and the North Korean leader.

    Earlier on Sunday, both Kim and Trump arrived in Singapore. The summit is scheduled to kick-off on Tuesday at 9 a.m. local time.
