North Korean leader Kim Jong un and US President Donald Trump.

"The prospect for North Korea is for it to become a normal nation, to behave and interact with the rest of the world the way South Korea does", he said.

Xi's offer "may have led to Kim's judgement on denuclearization" when he met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang after his China trip, according to the Yomiuri. If the Shangri-La hotel is chosen for the Trump-Kim meeting, much of the security preparations might already be in place.

"If the North Koreans are genuine and allow these intrusive inspections, then it works", said Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra.

Relations fell to a new low in the past year as Beijing, angered by Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests, supported a series of United Nations sanctions against its ally. "And that's why it's important to test whether, in fact, North Korea has made a strategic decision to give up weapons of mass destruction".

The meeting will focus on plans to implement a declaration that emerged from an April 27 inter-Korea summit, including promises to formally end the Koran War and pursue "complete denuclearisation", the South's unification ministry, which handles ties with the North, said on Tuesday. Thus, motivated by what might have happened, China behind the scenes has brought about the meetings between North and South Korea and between Trump and Kim.

So the likely scenario would be, according to Thae, Pyongyang would agree to SVID instead-sufficient, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization-by downsizing its nuclear stockpile.

Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that his country is honoured to host the historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, while Ren Yuanzhe told Sputnik that it's a great chance for the small nation to play a big role: "Of course, Singapore can not miss such a unique opportunity to improve its position in the world ranking".

"Singapore is the best alternative option for both nations because it has maintained close diplomatic ties to the U.S. and has also established relations with North Korea with a North Korean embassy on its soil", The Straits Times quoted the Asian Institute for Policy Studies senior fellow Dr. Shin Beom Chul as saying. "If it ends up harming allies - especially Japan - but it saves the U.S. homeland, it is going to be a win for Trump". Now the moment of truth is on the horizon and with fingers crossed, every Korean as well as the entire global community is waiting for the first-ever gathering between America's sitting President and North Korea's supreme leader in Singapore in June. Since the mid-1990s, the brinksmanship has included diplomatic efforts to shutter the North's nuclear weapons program.

"If we get denuclearization, of course, there will be sanctions relief, certainly".

"Now, they have doubled, shooting up to 6,000 or 7,000 in just two weeks", the realtor said.
