'Changed era' as Trump, North Korea's Kim gather for Singapore summit

US President Donald Trump described the talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as a

North Korea had also threatened to strike Guam, an American territory in the Pacific Ocean.

Menendez spoke Sunday on ABC's "This Week" as President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's talks with Kim.

Later, Kim met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at Lee's office in the sprawling palace known as the Istana.

While en route to Singapore later Saturday, Trump said he looked forward to meeting Kim on what he anticipated would be an exciting day.

But it was only Monday morning in North Korea that the government news agency reported that Kim was in Singapore, had met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and would meet Trump on Tuesday.

How will he know if Kim is serious?

The KCNA report was unusual in its clarity, mentioning the "historic first summit meeting and talks" between Kim and Trump.

"We'll most likely see an unprecedented scale of protection on land, sea and air as this summit is the biggest issue in the world right now", said Chae Kyou-chir, chief executive of Top Guard, a prominent South Korean security and protection firm.

The bodyguards were glimpsed flanking Kim's Mercedes-Benz limousine as it traveled to the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore on Sunday.

The leaders will meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa and talks are expected to centre on ending the North's nuclear weapons and missile programmes in return for diplomatic and economic incentives.

The Trump administration has previously insisted on "complete, verifiable, irreversible disarmament" (CVID) of North Korea, with the emphasis on unilateral steps by Pyongyang rewarded by U.S. security assurances.

"If a breakthrough is achieved, if peace comes, there will be a bountiful harvest, primarily of course within the Korean Peninsula but indeed for all the rest of us", he said.

"There is no military solution to the problem on the Korean Peninsula", he said.

He was greeted by Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan as he stepped off his plane.

Another Pyongyang report quoting Kim Yong-nam, the nominal head of state, as telling leader Kim to achieve outstanding outcomes from the summit with the U.S. has also drawn attention.

Although there are geopolitical and security interests at stake for China in the negotiations, Beijing has refrained from direct involvement in the summit between Trump and Kim.

Asked by Stephanopolous whether Trump deserves credit for brokering the first meeting in recent history between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, Menendez said he is anxious Trump "thinks this is a mano-a-mano engagement in which he can achieve the success we want". She led a North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Both were appearing in the quarterfinals on the red clay of Paris for the first time, and both handled the occasion well. Stephens has won both head-to-head encounters, including the Grand Slam final debut for each at NY in September.

Graham said he will embrace the letter and any effort to reach a good deal will need the support of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, adding that he's willing to sign a peace treaty to end the Korean War and guarantee the security of Kim's regime. North Korea saw that as a threat - Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi was ultimately overthrown and killed after doing a deal with the U.S.
