Donald Trump to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore

Gold Silver Reports (GSR) – Donald Trump to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore, he had Said.

“We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” the US leader tweeted. In March, Mr Trump stunned the world by accepting an invitation to meet Mr Kim for an unprecedented sit-down.

The pair had previously exchanged insults and threats. The breakthrough came after landmark talks between North and South Korea. Mr Trump’s announcement came hours after he welcomed home three US detainees released by North Korea.

Their release came during a visit to Pyongyang by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to arrange details of the meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Kim.

So, why Singapore?

Well, the biggest advantage is that it’s a neutral location. These are the other considerations in its favour:

📌 It’s not too far for the little travelled Mr Kim to go

📌 It’s a trusted US partner

📌 It has modern amenities

📌 It’s got very effective security apparatus, which is obviously key in these circumstances

Singapore is also familiar ground for North Korea, with the two countries having diplomatic relations since 1975. The country also has its embassy in Singapore’s central business district.

Nuclear and proliferation expert Tom Plant from London’s Royal United Services Institute told the Associated Press the city is a “great location” for the summit.

The US and Singapore have a close relationship. Singapore has diplomatic ties with North Korea but suspended all trade with the country in November last year as international sanctions were tightened.

Other locations which had been considered for the Trump-Kim summit included Mongolia and the Korean border’s demilitarised zone (DMZ).
