Why the Trump-Kim summit matters to these Australians

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on June 9, 2018, during the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada.

A Kim Jong Un lookalike said he was detained and questioned upon his arrival in Singapore on Friday, days before a summit between the North Korean leader and President Donald Trump.

'We talked about ending the war, ' Trump said at the White House after his meeting earlier this month with senior North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol.

She said she hoped the high-level discussions between Mr Kim and other world leaders will lead to greater engagement and encourage more institutions to form connections with North Koreans. "I think I've been prepared for this summit for a long time, as has the other side".

Still, questions remain about what a deal on the North's nuclear weapons could look like.

"We think North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time", he said. He said he thinks "it's going to work out very well".

Not so unusual, said Peter Ward, a North Korea researcher at Seoul National University.

Mr Dann asked Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern about the upcoming meeting, who said if the USA summit with North Korea ends with denuclearisation, Trump's part "needs to be acknowledged".

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, it would be good for the world".

Congress could either help give the negotiated agreement more heft by ratifying it, or completely undermine the deal for either political or substantive reasons, Town said.

Since the summit was revived by Trump last week, there has been scant mention about Trump or the meeting in the North's tightly controlled propaganda outlets.

"Even if they cheat on handing over nuclear weapons, possibly cheat on freezing uranium production, there can be a certain amount of cheating and we can still be better off", Kristof says.

Kristof tells CBC's Susan Ormiston that while denuclearization and peace between North and South Korea are centre-stage at the June 12 summit, it's important not to forget the troubling human rights issues in North Korea.

Trump largely stuck to the script during the press conference Saturday, but did veer into his signature attacks on the media after bristling at questions over the brewing tensions between the US and its allies - including a testy exchange in which he called out a "fake news CNN" reporter.

This city-state of 5.5 million people bustled with anticipation as workers raced to finish security preparations for an event with little modern-day precedent. "The regime is employing a wait-and-see approach to the issue, which makes sense from their point of view".

He escaped North Korea at 19 years old. This is a leader who really is an unknown personality.

"Now it seems to devolve to something more like a get acquainted meeting, which is something that North Korea has wanted to do for decades".
