Visitors to Singapore island face increased scrutiny

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says special counsel Robert Mueller's team is trying to frame President Trump.

Yesterday morning, the President tweeted, "Meeting in Singapore with North Korea will hopefully be the start of something big...we will soon see!"

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.

Rodman last visited North Korea in June 2017 on one of his so-called "basketball diplomacy" trips.

"We're not going to go in and sign something on June 12th and we never were".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday a decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to set up a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was "brave and mature", and said that he was expecting a "positive outcome".

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un will discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula at a luxury, five-star resort on the southern Singapore island of Sentosa.

Trump said last week he'd avoid using the phrase because of improving relations between the two countries.

The White House late Tuesday night confirmed the selection of the Capella Hotel, located on a resort enclave accessible to Singapore's main island by a single causeway. "We are talking about the installation of a gas pipeline", the Russian president said.

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 USA and North Korea.

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders made the announcement during a regular press briefing, adding that significant progress had been made in discussions between USA representative and their North Korean counterparts.

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