Kim Jong-un arrives in Singapore on an Air China flight two days before historic summit

A jet carrying Kim landed at Changi airport on Sunday amid huge security precautions on the city-state island

Kim Jong-un arrived in Singapore on Sunday ahead of his historic summit with President Donald Trump.

When Trump and Kim meet at the five-star Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa on Tuesday, they will be making history even before they start.

Enemies since the Korean War, the leaders of North Korea and the United States have never met previously – or even spoken on the phone.

Kim arrived at Singapore’s Changi Airport on an Air China jet on Sunday afternoon, local time, after his longest trip overseas as head of state amid huge security precautions on the city-state island. Two decoy flights were also dispatched.
