It will be the first-ever meeting between the leaders of the USA and North Korea.

Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the US -based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, and Rabbi Abraham Cooper at the Simon Wiesenthal Center urged Trump to seek "the complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement" of North Korean political prison camps - mimicking the formulation used by the U.S.in its demand for that nation's denuclearization.

The results from previous summits and peace talks show that getting North Korea to seriously commit to denuclearization at any level is an huge challenge. The 70-year-old, who was not on the North Korea trip, was active in Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend.

"The process could be doomed before it begins", said Kelsey Davenport of the Arms Control Association, adding that a common understanding of denuclearisation was key to success. Aware that the eyes of the world were on a moment many people never expected to see, Kim said many of those watching would think it was a scene from a "science fiction movie".

Heavy security and armed police are standing guard at summit-related venues across the city state. The two are staying about a half-mile from each other.

But he added: "In the end, that doesn't matter".

HU: Now what different and unique really means, we don't know.

Kim is due to meet Trump at 9am on Tuesday.

He joined Singapore's foreign minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, who tweeted a selfie with a smiling Kim and Singapore education minister Ong Ye Kung, against a backdrop of flowers with the hashtag Guesswhere.

"China might have wanted to prevent Chinese smugglers from entering North Korea so they cracked down on smuggling organizations in the border area few days ago and arrested number of smugglers", he said.

Each one wears a red lapel pin with the image of the North Korean leader.

And he made clear that, whatever the role of diplomats and aides in setting up the meeting, it would be the personal exchange between him and Kim that would be decisive.

New details of the agenda have been released.

"I couldn't even go home".

The men were preparing in separate rooms before their 9 a.m. handshake.

What are the talks about?

In addition to discussing denuclearization with Kim, Trump has also left open the possibility of declaring an end to the Korean War.

"They have to de-nuke. If they don't denuclearise, that will not be acceptable".

The combatants of the 1950-53 Korean War are technically still at war, as the conflict, in which millions of people died, was concluded only with a truce.

How did we get here?

But there was no mentioning the previous U.S. aim of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization". Meanwhile, Mr Kim has called Mr Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard". "We will be tremendously successful", Trump said before their private session.

That's a massive shift in Kim's public persona, and it might show one of the reasons both Trump and Kim were eager for this meeting to take place: Regardless of what actually happens, global summits can be a pretty big PR boost.

Talks of this kind typically take months to prepare.

In Singapore, the entire world is focused on the high stakes summit as Kim meets with President Trump.

What do both sides want?

It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

Amateur body language analysts noted that Trump is being more physical than Kim.

The elite squad is reminding numerous cheerleaders the North Korean leader sent to the Winter Olympics in February. "If Trump gets something about this, it will boost his agenda".
