G7: Trump leaves summit prematurely for meeting with Kim Jong

Trump said the talks would establish dialogue between the two nations, with an ultimate goal of North Korea's denuclearization.
On his flight to Singapore, Kim Chang Son was filmed by Japanese broadcaster TBS looking at documents that read: "To guarantee success of the (US-North Korea) summit, the first and second priorities will be to ensure the safety of Chairman Kim Jong Un".

U.S. policy since the Obama Administration was that Washington would not negotiate with North Korea unless the Pyongyang government agreed beforehand the topic would be denuclearisation.
President Trump has spent the past week tamping down expectations, calling it a "get acquainted meeting, plus", and saying "it's a process".
His two friendship medals from the rogue state are among his most prized possessions.
An article on May 29 in the Rodong Sinmun, the official party newspaper, slammed USA media reports that North Korea is seeking major "economic aid" from the United States. I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast.
"But it's an bad lot better than firing missiles at each other". President Trump can not fully suspend sanctions on North Korea unless North Korea agrees to key reforms. He also suggested South Korea, China and Japan would be prepared to help the North's economy.

The summit has been portrayed as a "get to know you" meeting. "Again and again when I speak on panels in South Korea now, I am the lone hawk or skeptic".
What is achievable is really anyone's calculated guess. The 1950-53 conflict ended with an armistice, but not a formal peace treaty. The negotiation would be over the price America would pay North Korea to give up its missiles and nuclear bombs.
"It's the formative experience in their life and they're committed to the Australia-Korea relationship in a much deeper way to the more cosmopolitan South Korean who goes skiing in America", Dr Dalton told SBS News.
Given North Korea's systemic threat to the region and the world, reasonable minds should agree that a Trump-Kim deal is a good thing, even if it slows, but does not stop, North Korea's dark ambitions.
North Korea's catastrophic human rights record is inextricably linked with the threat of its nuclear weapons, and addressing those abuses can not be avoided.
Kim previously used an IL-76 to transport his armored stretch Mercedes Benz limousine to Dalian, suggesting Sunday's flight to Singapore may be carrying the same auto to Singapore.
Thae Yong Ho, a former senior North Korean diplomat who defected to the South in 2016, said recently that the idea that the North will completely denuclearize is a "fantasy".
US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are expected to land in Singapore on Sunday within hours of each other in advance of a historic summit over the reclusive country's arsenal of nuclear weapons. That's my touch, my feel, that's what I do. "I felt as if I was back in time, back in the period immediately after the Second World War when worldwide military tribunals and other investigations were conducted into the Nazi horrors".
"But we have to, I think, remind people there are a couple of hundred thousand people in brutal death camps".
"At a minimum, I do believe, at least we'll have met each other", Trump said, adding later that "hopefully, we will have liked each other".
"The U.S. press is very dishonest", Trump said. "They pocket all of it and lose essentially nothing", said Christopher Hill, President George W. Bush's lead nuclear negotiator with the North.
Like the real-life leaders, fake Kim and Trump are no strangers to controversies of their own.
In any case, raising the topic of North Korea's human rights abuses will be necessary as a practical matter. "From what I can tell from (Trump's recent comments at the White House), they're not going to be asked to do much".
