North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reached Singapore on Sunday for a historic summit with United States President Donald Trump on June 12. Trump is scheduled to reach the island nation at 8.35 pm (6.05 pm Indian time) on Sunday. The leaders will meet on the resort island of Sentosa on Tuesday morning.

This is the first time that a North Korean leader is holding a meeting with a sitting US president. Since the Korean War in the 1950s, the leaders of the two countries have never met or even spoken on the phone, Reuters reported. Trump and Kim will discuss the denuclearisation of North Korea and the formal ending of the Korean War.

Singapore Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan welcomed Kim at Changi Airport after his longest trip overseas as head of state.

Trump will meet Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday. His meeting with Kim will start at 9 am on Tuesday.

Singapore has restricted its airspace temporarily for parts of June 11, 12 and 13. All aircraft arriving into Singapore Changi Airport will be required to reduce speed and face some restrictions on runway use “for reasons of national security”, a government notice said.

Trump has said that the formal ending of the Korean War is on the agenda. The 1950 to 1953 conflict had only ended with a truce but no final peace treaty was signed.

The summit comes months after the tensions between the US and North Korea escalated after Pyongyang stepped up efforts to boost its nuclear weapons programme. The two leaders began to frequently trade ridicule, insults and threats against each other, and the United Nations strengthened sanctions against North Korea. In March, however, Trump accepted an invitation from Kim to meet him.

    On one hand, North Korea must pay the price of a Kim meeting with Trump or any American representative, in this 21st century world international order under Southern Countries Union- SCU which comprises Asia, Africa, South America and parts of Europe led by Russia, Turkey representing Europe, China, India, Japan, Indonesia representing Asia, Brazil, Mexico representing South America, Egypt, South Africa representing Africa. On the other hand, any North Korea agreement with Trump or America is null and void in this 21st century world international order under Southern Countries Union- SCU under which North Korea exist. America occupation of South Korea under 20th century world international order is dead and gone forever. South Korea is a free country under Southern Countries Union- SCU in 21st century world international order. America has to move American occupation instruments out of South Korea. If America hesitate to move American occupation instruments out of South Korea, they will become South Korea properties in this 21st century world international order in which America has no power, has no legitimacy, has no say. 20th century world international order is dead and gone forever with the fallen America, the dead fraudulent UN etc. God Is With Us!!!
