Strict security measures will be enforced around Shangri-La Hotel and The St Regis which have been selected for Trump and Kim's stay in Singapore.

When he meets Mr Trump in Washington on Thursday, Mr Abe is expected to push for Japan's security concerns to be reflected.

The former New York City mayor, who was hired by Trump in April to deal exclusively with the Mueller probe, raised eyebrows last month when he implied that the United States president was keen on fomenting regime change in Iran.

There are worries in Tokyo that Mr Trump might strike a deal with North Korea that would sideline Japanese interests. -North Korea summit, according to the New York Post.

May 13 - Bolton suggests in USA television interviews that the Libya model of unilateral disarmament should be pursued in getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

He hailed the "unprecedented" steps by the North, including the suspension of nuclear and missile tests and the demolition of its nuclear test site, as important shows of goodwill.

Now, Mr Kim's diplomacy is in full gear, exchanging envoys with Washington and holding repeated summits with his Chinese and South Korean counterparts.

Inside the hotel where Trump and Kim will meet
President Trump and Kim will meet at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore , the White House said Tuesday . Singapore airspace will be restricted during the meeting between the United States and North Korea, Reuters reported.

Mr Kim reached out to the South's dovish President Moon Jae-in in time for the Winter Olympics and later made his global debut with a surprise trip to traditional ally China to finally pay his respects to President Xi Jinping, repairing a relationship that had frayed in recent years.

A separate notice on the ICAO website warned aviators to keep clear of the Paya Lebar Air Base, a military facility in the east of the island that has been used by US presidents on past visits.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov visited Mr Kim in Pyongyang, laying the groundwork for Mr Kim to visit President Vladimir Putin in Moscow later this year.

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad said he meant to visit Pyongyang.

Seeing that Kim Chang-son left Singapore following series of talks with White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin, . sources also say general preparations for the summit may have come to an end. It is less than two months since they had their last face-to-face meeting at Mr. Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

However, on Wednesday, the lawyer was at it again, telling a business conference in Tel Aviv that Trump has a head start in the much-anticipated meeting with Kim, as it was allegedly the North Korean leader who had to do the begging to get the meeting back on the table.

There was no immediate response from the North Koreans to his comments.
