Lasting peace has obvious benefits for China, especially in bolstering the development of its rust-belt and landlocked northeast which borders North Korea and would suffer in the even of conflict.
The historic first meeting between a sitting us president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room.
Setting out the U.S. position before the summit, Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North. "They are tough-minded and come prepared".
North Korea expert Zhang Liangui, a professor of worldwide strategic research at the Communist Party's Central Party School, told The Straits Times Mr Kim might have sought help from the Chinese because of safety concerns about the condition of his jet.
"We will be doing something on it", Trump said.
When pressed for a breakdown on the summit expenses, he said, "I think if you calculate the price of everything in this world, you will miss out the really important things".
He said the Canadian leader must not have realised that Trump had televisions on Air Force One, allowing him to monitor Trudeau's news conference at the end of the G-7 summit.
Trump, tweeting hours before the historic face-to-face, said: "Meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly".
Asked whether he would invite Kim to the White House, Trump said: "Absolutely, I will".
Critics of the summit leapt at the leaders' handshake and the moonlight stroll Kim took Monday night along the glittering Singapore waterfront, saying it was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimize Kim on the world stage as an equal of the US president.
The two men spoke privately before a backdrop of red, white and blue flags, North Korea's single star interspersed with the stars and stripes of the American banner.
"These discussions that will take place tomorrow between Chairman Kim and President Trump will set the framework for the hard work that will follow".
Mr Trump also expressed the US' continued commitment to engage the region and his support for Singapore's chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Pompeo also said that Trump had called Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean president Moon Jae-in.
Trump said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is destroying a major missile engine testing site. Trump and Kim sat across from each other near the center of a long table. I said, boy, look at that view.
