Visitors to Sentosa who are entering the island via cable cars can expect to encounter bag checks or be diverted from existing gantry lanes on the Sentosa's Gateway from Tuesday to Wednesday (12-13 June) as part of enhanced security measures for the upcoming Trump-Kim summit. "It is a historic negotiation, and there is no way this president is not going to stand strong", Kudlowsaid.
The meeting included North Korea Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son-hui and USA negotiators Allison Hooker, the National Security Council's director for Korea, and Randall Schriver, assistant defense secretary for Asian and Pacific security affairs.
The shift coincides with a shakeup on the president's national security team - the addition of national security adviser John Bolton, who has been candid about his view that the North Koreans will never voluntarily give up their nuclear weapons, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a former Kansas congressman with a hawkish reputation. Trump and Kim lookalikes held a summit of their own at a local shopping mall, while one bistro is offering a libation known as the Trump-Kim "Bromance:" Beer, tequila, diet Coke and the Korean distilled rice liquor known as soju.
Another possibility from the summit is a deal to end the Korean War, which North Korea has long demanded, presumably, in part, to get United States troops off the Korean Peninsula and, eventually, pave the way for a North Korean-led unified Korea.
USA and North Korean negotiators met in a Singapore hotel on Monday, seeking to clarify the shape of Tuesday's summit, where Trump has said he intends to guided by instinct. But any request for the U.S. to withdraw its 28,000 troops from South Korean bases would likely be rejected.
The issues on the table remain stubborn and complex for two countries that have been at odds for almost 70 years.
Late on Monday. Trump phoned Moon from Singapore. While Trump will be a guest at the Shangri-La Hotel during his stay in the City-State, Kim will be a resident of the St Regis Hotel barely a kilometre away.

Still, some experts say it's important that both leaders come into the meeting with clear, realistic goals. Despite that, "we're going in with a very positive spirit" and "I think very well prepared".
Graham said he will embrace the letter and any effort to reach a good deal will need the support of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, adding that he's willing to sign a peace treaty to end the Korean War and guarantee the security of Kim's regime.

So just what will a successful meeting between Trump and Kim actually look like? Kim visited China twice this year, but the North's media made them public only after he returned to Pyongyang.
On Monday morning, North Koreans woke up to the news that Kim had arrived in Singapore for the "historic" tête-à-tête.
The summit would discuss "building a permanent and durable peacekeeping mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, the issue of realising denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" and other issues "as required by the changed era".
After more than a day's silence on Twitter, Trump posted four tweets about trade disagreements that were the talk of the G-7 conference, followed by a quick mention of the summit he is now attending - writing "Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!" - before turning back to tweeting about trade once more.

Mr Lee also said it was "not easy" to find a location in the world that is suitable to host such a high-level meeting. Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the U.S. and North Korea.
