(FOX NEWS) – President Trump is due to meet with Singapore’s prime minister Monday amid last-minute preparations for his historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump’s scheduled meeting and working lunch with Lee Hsien Loong is set to take place one day before he and Kim come face-to-face in the island city-state. The two leaders are set to meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Singapore time (9 p.m. Monday ET).
Meanwhile, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines, who has taken the lead on policy negotiations with the North, will hold a working group with a North Korean delegation at 10 a.m. Monday local time (10 p.m. Sunday ET) to make final preparations for the confab.
Kim Jong Un held his own meeting with Lee earlier Sunday after landing in the island city-state hours ahead of Trump, who arrived fresh from a contentious G7 summit.
“The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America, and thanks to your sincere efforts … we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit,” Kim told Lee through an interpreter.
