US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet in Singapore for the first time at 9 am in Singapore on June 12, the White House has announced.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, announcing the timing of the meeting, said the White House "advance team" , including military, security, technical and medical staff, were already in Singapore. They were "finalising preparations and will remain in place until the summit begins", she said.
President Trump is getting daily briefings on North Korea from his national security team in the run-up to the meeting, she added.
At the summit, President Trump is expected to urge North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme.
North Korea is believed to have developed a miniaturised nuclear device that could be placed on a missile that could strike the United States.
