Balakrishnan will also call on North Korea's ceremonial president Kim Yong Nam during his visit to the country, it said.

WASHINGTON, D.C.: The much-vaunted summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un will take place on Singapore's resort island of Sentosa, the White House said on Tuesday. In those talks, North Koreans opposed the selection of an American or European-owned venue, which helped tip the scales toward the Singaporean-owned Cappella, founded by the Pontiac Land Group, according to media reports.

Rodman, who was a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom in 2006, has visited North Korea five times in the past and has taken some of the credit for getting the two leaders together.

"And I told them today: Take your time".

Mr Trump said last week that the nuclear disarmament summit would only be the start of a diplomatic process.

James said that he was still digesting the news of Trump's disinviting of the Eagles but that he was not surprised by the news. Almost a year later, not much has changed when it's come to the 4-time MVP's stance on the United State's 45th president.

At an island resort off the coast of Singapore, U.S. event planners are working day and night with their North Korean counterparts to set up a summit created to bring an end to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program. I don't want to sit there and say, 'I did this, I did that.' That's not my intention.

Trump has been trying to bring together the two countries for some months, in a bid to end North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.

The hotel boasts a mix of colonial-style buildings and curvy modern edifices, and the resort's relative seclusion appealed to security-conscious US and North Korean officials. "Having been a contestant twice on Trump's reality-TV show, "Celebrity Apprentice", and having been to North Korea five times since 2013, he's one of the few people on the planet to have met both leaders, let alone be on friendly terms with them".

The two sides are meeting for the third straight day after North Korean senior official Kim Yong-chol paid a visit to U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday.

Located a quarter of a mile off the coast of the city-state, Sentosa Island is known for its high-end beach hotels, golf courses and amusement parks.
