Singapore: The Trump-Kim summit that is slated for Tuesday in Singapore’s Capella Hotel in Sentosa seems promising with the two counterparts arriving at some solution that has stained their political relations.

Thanking Singapore’s PM Lee Hsien Loong for hosting the summit, Trump also attended a luncheon meeting with PM Lee on Monday. He expressed US interests of continuing its commitment to extend his support the Singapore’s chairmanship of ASEAN, ChannelAsia reported.

Later, Trump has also accepted an invitation to visit Singapore from his counterpart Halimah Yacob.

A press statement released by the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said the two leaders had a “good discussion on a range of regional and global developments” and that they reaffirmed the relations between the two countries across their economic, defence and security spheres.

In his FB post, Mr Lee said he was “glad to reciprocate his hospitality” Mr Trump has given him during his visit to White House last year.

His post read, “I wished him all the best for tomorrow’s summit, which we hope will be a first step on the path to peace,” the Prime Minister also said, adding that he was “looking forward to a positive outcome”.
