Putin to MEET Kim Jong-un as Russia invites North Korean dictator | Daily Star

That is certainly the case for the Capella Hotel in Singapore, which was chosen as the location for talks between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The June 12 summit is set to take place at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island, the White House announced Tuesday.

In April, South Korean adviser Chung-in Moon was even more specific, saying North Korea might be interested in welcoming a McDonald's if tensions between the US and North Korea ease, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I think it is right not to turn down the opportunity but it's also right to be very conscious of what you're doing and the risks", she said.

Kim Chang Son, the de facto chief of staff for the North Korean government, was seen at The Fullerton five-star hotel in Singapore last week during a visit to meet U.S. officials to work out the logistics for the summit.

The announcement came a day after the White House revealed that the historic June 12 meeting between the United States and North Korean leaders will take place in a luxury hotel on Singapore's resort island of Sentosa.

The exact venue of the Trump-Kim summit has yet to be confirmed, although Singapore has declared a special event zone including its foreign ministry, the US Embassy, and several large hotels, such as the Shangri-La. "They're just excited; if we can make it happen, it's great", Hentschel said.

Sanders said that the White House "advance team" - which features military, security, technical and medical staff - were already on the ground in Singapore.

Speaking to reporters afterwards, Mr Trump said the meeting had been a "getting to know you kind of situation" and that "the relationships are building and that's very positive".

Kim Yong Chol, a top aide of Kim handed over to Trump a letter from the North Korean leader. "I think that has resonated to this whole point now". "We are talking about the installation of a gas pipeline", the Russian president said.

Trump has tamped down expectation that the decadeslong standoff over North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles will be resolved in one go.
