The White House said yesterday, that a first meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place at 9:00am in Singapore on Jun 12th.
Spokeswoman Sarah 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.
She added that President Trump is getting daily briefings on North Korea in the run-up to the landmark meeting.
Experts have voiced concern, that despite President Trump's claim to be the world's greatest dealmaker, he knows little about North Korea, arms control or international diplomacy.
The on-again-off-again summit is expected to focus on US efforts to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme.
