THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: First Trump-Kim summit scheduled

The White House said that a first meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place at 0900 hours in Singapore on June 12.

“We are actively preparing for the June 12th summit between the president and the North Korean leader,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in announcing the timing of the meeting.

“We feel like things are continuing to move forward, and good progress has been made.”

Sanders said that the White House “advance team” — which features military, security, technical and medical staff — were already on the ground in the Southeast Asian state.

They are “finalizing preparations and will remain in place until the summit begins,” said Sanders.

She added that Trump is getting daily briefings on North Korea in the runup to the landmark meeting.

“I can tell you the president has been receiving daily briefings on North Korea from his national security team,” said Sanders.
