President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un touched down in Singapore with their respective teams over the weekend; setting the stage for the first meeting between the two nations’ leaders in history.
Kim Jong Un arrived in the city-state via a Chinese chartered aircraft that included two “dummy” planes acting as a potential decoy for attacks, with Trump landing in Singapore aboard Air Force One.
“Kim who is known as a reasonable leader may have accepted his advisers’ recommendations to prioritize safety in aviation,” said a professor at Seoul’s University of North Korean Studies.
“In addition, the charter of a Chinese airplane may have an effect of publicizing China’s active support and cooperation to the North Korean people ahead of summit talks with the U.S,” added the expert.
Trump and Kim’s arrival in Singapore clears the final hurdles after months of back-and-forth negotiations, with the leaders expected to meet at 9am local time.
