Kim Jong Un has arrived in Singapore ahead of his meeting with President Donald Trump.

The historic meeting will be the first time a North Korean leader meets a sitting US president and will take place on Sentosa island on Tuesday.

Singapore’s minister for foreign affairs Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted a photo of the two to welcome Kim to the city-state.

Trump and Kim are set to meet in two days at the Cabella Hotel to discuss denuclearisation of North Korea, in exchange for economic help.

As he headed to Singapore following the G7 meeting in Canada, Trump said: ‘It is going to work out very well.

‘I really feel confident. I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity and he won’t have that opportunity again.’

He added: ‘I think within the first minute I’ll know’ if North Korea is serious about a deal.
