By Law, Trump Must Discuss Human Rights with Kim

The law imposes a financial ban and asset freezes on the government and its component parts, and the Workers Party of Korea, of which Kim is the chairman. North Korea has previously used the term to demand the USA pull thousands of troops out of South Korea and end its so-called "nuclear umbrella" agreement to protect South Korea, which lacks nukes.

The Trump administration is hoping that the talks will jump-start a process that eventually sees Kim give up his nuclear weapons.

Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Trump receives daily intelligence briefings on North Korea.

Trump is probably "talking about a statement of intent, not about signing an actual peace treaty, which would require a number of time-consuming steps and negotiations to complete", Ferial Saeed, a former State Department official, wrote recently.

Trump insisted Saturday that the meeting was not contentious, saying that his relationships with allies remained strong, but continued to say that the US had been "taken advantage of for decades and decades" on trade. And he may have achieved this under false pretences.

"Thank you for all the donations you have been making to North Korea, well, me".

Brisbane retiree Raymond Ferguson is secretary for the Australia Democratic Republic of North Korea Friendship Association.

"As far as the "economic aid" advertised by the U.S.is concerned, the DPRK has never expected it", the article said, using the initials for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

It wasn't a departure from this policy for Trump to agree to meet Kim.

The U.S. and North Korea have disagreed about what "denuclearization" would actually entail.

"It's about attitude", Trump said.

Since then, however, Pyongyang has appeared less willing to denuclearise than the South Korean intermediaries indicated.

"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.

"When the two sides asked us to host the meeting, we couldn't say no".

The summit is set to mark the first meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader and comes after Trump and Kim previously engaged in a war of words over the North Korean nuclear program and each nation's military capabilities.

"I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said during a free-wheeling press conference before he departed the ongoing G-7 talks for the Singapore summit with Kim.

"If I think it won't happen, I'm not going to waste my time". (Carlos Barria/Reuters) North Korea handing over its nuclear weapons, however, is nearly certainly not going to happen at this meeting. "We are looking for peace in the world, we are not looking to play games", he added.

In sum, it is far from clear that Pyongyang has really committed to anything like the American conception of denuclearisation.

Sorry. Those famous Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump impersonators, Howard X and Dennis Alan, were the ones seen bro-ing it up in Singapore on Saturday, ahead of a meeting between the real world leaders. The ensuing recognition as a "normal country" could then allow sanctions relief, and later worldwide aid and investment.
