Possibility of peace treaty at Trump-Kim summit offers hopes - and fears

Possibility of peace treaty at Trump-Kim summit offers hopes - and fears

In his press conference Saturday, Trump compared what he described as a lack of action on the part of past USA leaders on North Korea with the "bad" trade deals they made with key allies, including Canada and France.

Asked how long it would take for him to know if Kim was honest about giving up nuclear weapons Mr Trump said: "I think within the first minute I'll know".

When asked what he was doing to prepare, the president said he doesn't have to "prepare very much".

The leaders meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa and talks are expected to centre on ending the North's nuclear weapons and missiles programmes in return for diplomatic and economic incentives.

Chen Ziyang, 28, who was queueing for a picture, said the impersonators had "almost 99 percent resemblance to the real Kim and Trump".

"I think that very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen", he told reporters in La Malbaie, Quebec, before departing the Group of Seven industrialized nations meeting for Singapore. "What I do think, however, is that there will have to be major outreach to Congress to get their buy in for whatever the negotiated result is", she said.

New York Times op-ed columnist and foreign policy expert Nicholas Kristof says South Korean President Moon Jae-in has brilliantly manipulated both Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to get them to the same negotiating table.

"I congratulate the leaders of other countries for crazily being able to make these trade deals that were so good for their countries and bad for the United States", Trump said. "The haters, they say, "Oh, you're giving him a meeting" - gimme a break, OK?"

But with regime survival always a top concern for the North Korean leader, many analysts question whether he would ever be willing to relinquish a nuclear arsenal that helps maintain his grip on power. "When the government says, there is prosperity in terms of food and rice, we see it ourselves and see that there is a drought and there is no food for us", Kim said.

For nearly three decades, successive USA presidents, other world leaders and the United Nations have tried in vain to pressure or cajole North Korea into scrapping its nuclear weapons programme.

Outside the luxury St. Regis hotel, just beyond a busy upscale shopping corridor, construction crews hoisted concrete bollards into place around the perimeter of the five-star complex where the North Korean delegation is expected to stay. And by the way, we have worked very well with their people, they have many people now in Shanghai, our people have been - in Singapore - our people have been working very, very well with the representatives of North Korea and I think we're going to come out fine.
