Ditching entourages, Trump and Kim Jong Un to meet 1 on 1

The US insists it will accept nothing less than complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.
Success in Singapore would see Kim making a bold decision to exchange his nukes for economic support and security assurances, according to Ryan Haas, an Asia expert at the John L Thornton China Center. Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders.
Yet the top U.S. diplomat added Trump is ready to offer "unique" guarantees to ease the regime's concerns about giving up a nuclear arsenal that provides a deterrent against foreign adversaries while also serving as a key point of national pride.
South Korea media outlets reported that Kim will likely stay at the St Regis, where his close aide has been based as he leads a North Korean advance team arranging security and logistics details.
This is a very high bar and probably unrealistic after one meeting.
Just hours before what could be the most important meeting of his life, a seemingly relaxed and confident Kim Jong Un took a night on the town in Singapore, taking selfies and being greeted by cheering onlookers. He implied to White House reporters last month during a background briefing that reinstating the summit after Trump canceled it would have been almost impossible.
"Despite his young age, he seems to be shrewd", he said, adding that he believes Kim realises his crusade to develop a nuclear arsenal to ensure his regime's survival has "hit a dead end" under intensifying sanctions.
In tamping down expectations, Trump himself has described this initial meeting as the start of a process. The Korean War of the early 1950s ended with a ceasefire, not a treaty.
Less than two days before his tête-a-tête with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the president who initially welcomed the idea that his efforts might net him a Nobel Prize was downplaying the possibility that Tuesday's meeting would lead to any major breakthroughs. How long will it take to figure out whether or not they're serious? -North Korea summit with President Moon, Kim said.
Even so, the summit continues to be a sensitive topic in North Korea and it is hard - even more so than usual - to get people to express opinions about it. "They see denuclearisation as a collective suicide (and they are probably right)". He most recently traveled there a year ago as a private citizen.
But a failure Tuesday doesn't necessarily mean a return to the animosity of 2017.
Singapore is one of the few countries that have diplomatic relations with both the USA and North Korea.
The sudden change in schedule added to a dizzying few days of foreign policy activity for Trump, who shocked USA allies over the weekend when he used a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized economies in Canada to alienate America's closest friends in the West. Lashing out over trade practices, Trump lobbed insults at his G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
