Singapore likely to host US-North Korea summit in June

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are likely to meet in Singapore next month.

South Korea's Chosun Ilbo daily on Monday cited diplomatic sources as saying the landmark summit will take place in "mid-June". The newspaper on Monday suggested that the possibility of Singapore hosting the meeting had "increased greatly", after a decision by Mr. Trump to host South Korean president Moon Jae-in at the White House later this month.

Mr.Trump had previously suggested that the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas-the site of a recent summit between Kim and Moon-could also be an appropriate venue for his meeting with the North's leader.
