The Trump-Kim summit, which will be held at the Capella Hotel on Tuesday morning, will mark the first time a North Korean leader has met with a sitting USA president. The article also stresses the need for confidentiality - meaning Trump will have to resist tweeting the minutes of the meeting.
On June 9, the day before Kim embarked on the 3,000-mile journey to Singapore from Pyongyang - the farthest he's traveled since taking the helm as leader of North Korea - state media published reports about Kim's visit to a newly opened seafood restaurant.
Although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail, Trump sounded a positive note in a lunch meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee.
Trump, asked last week if Rodman had been invited to Singapore, said: "No, he wasn't".
South Korean officials are hopeful that the meeting between the USA and North Korea will set the stage for an end to the world's last remaining cold war and the division of the Korean peninsula.

'Cheating Every Time' North Korea has previously promised to denuclearize, only to continue its nuclear program after receiving concessions from the U.S., said Michael J. Green, senior vice president for Asia and Japan Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
"I know Singapore is a very hot country, so I wish that our respected marshal stays healthy and comes back in good health".
Earlier in May, North Korea, too, had threatened to cancel the meeting in protest against the joint military exercise the United States had conducted with South Korea.
Some hope for an end to Cold War confrontation and that the North will eventually give up its nuclear weapons, others are sceptical about Pyongyang's intentions - and some say they have too many economic problems of their own to pay much attention. "This is not the fault of either Trump or Kim, but rather a reflection that intractable, decades-long strategic challenges rarely-if ever-get resolved in single encounters", Haas writes.
The relationship between the USA and its allies was already off-balance after Mr. Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada.
"These discussions that will take place tomorrow between Chairman Kim and President Trump will set the framework for the hard work that will follow". "He's one of the best negotiators of all time and I'm looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit".
All eyes are on Singapore for this event, with 2,500 journalists from all over the world descending onto the city-state to cover the summit. Forging a peace treaty involving South Korea may be another topic of the Trump-Kim meeting.

Trudeau, much like Macron, also attempted to take a gentler approach to Trump in the early days of Trump's presidency. But Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was more than a match for Trump in his first meeting with the U.S.
