President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un Tuesday morning, Singapore time, on the island of Sentosa.
Trump arrived in Singapore Sunday and spent approximately two days preparing for the summit while lower-level delegations of Americans met North Korean officials for talks preceding the meeting between the two world leaders.
The White House issued official guidance for the summit Monday that reads, “The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected,” before revealing further details about the event.
Trump will take part in an official meet-and-greet with Kim Jong-un before undergoing direct one-on-one negotiations with the leader. The two leaders will be accompanied only by their official translators.
Following the direct one on one negotiations, Trump will be joined by a U.S. delegation for an expanded bilateral meeting.
“The United States delegation at tomorrow’s expanded bilateral meeting will include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Ambassador Sung Kim, and National Security Council Senior Director for Asia Matt Pottinger will join for the working lunch,” the White House said.
The president will then depart the summit and answer questions from the adjoining press corps Tuesday evening before flying back to the U.S.
