Kim summit set for Singapores Sentosa Island: White House

Balakrishnan will also call on North Korea's ceremonial president Kim Yong Nam during his visit to the country, it said.

Kim Chang Son, director of North Korea's state affairs commission secretariat, and Joe Hagin, a deputy White House chief of staff, met at the hotel in late May to work out security and logistics measures.

With just two weeks out from the planned Trump-Kim Jong Un summit in Singapore, North Korea has made a few significant military changes. "We're keeping an eye on negotiations between the North and the USA on the agenda".

Under successive members of the Kim family, around whom a nationwide cult of personality is built, North Korea has regularly shown a willingness to engage in bellicose rhetoric, especially in response to insults of its leader.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un will reportedly continue their unusual bromance at the much-anticipated summit in Singapore.

The June 12 meeting will be the first between sitting leaders of each country and will focus on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The Kremlin leader said last month that his own proposed meeting with Trump was not working out for now and was beset by problems.

"It's not that our government has entered into full-fledged preparations to join the North-U.S. summit", the official told reporters.

The talks, which were cancelled by Mr Trump before being re-scheduled last week for the same day and place, are expected to focus on Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a Twitter post that the venue would be the Capella Hotel on Sentosa and thanked Singaporeans for their hospitality.

Easing sanctions under a deal would likely need approval from Congress which has passed sanctions on North Korea.

"I think it'll be a process", he said after welcoming top official Kim Yong-chol to the White House.
