The full details are in, and President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are set to meet at a lavish resort in Singapore today.

From there, the two leaders will head to a one-on-one meeting accompanied only by translators, then to a second bilateral meeting with more participants, and finally to a working lunch.

After the many meetings with Kim, Trump will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. local time (6 p.m. AEST), then fly back to the White House.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo is the highest-ranking official on the list who has met Kim before. He travelled to North Korea to visit the dictator in May.

After that secretive summit, John Bolton angered North Korea when he compared the country’s path to denuclearization to Libya’s, leading experts to believe Trump’s hawkish national security adviser was trying to sabotage the talks. It will be interesting to see how much he participates in the bilateral meeting and whether North Korea takes issue with his presence.

Trump is hoping to get Kim to agree to get rid of his nuclear weapons, though he has said it may take many more meetings to get to that point. Kim is hoping Trump will relieve the economic sanctions that have crippled the North Korean economy.
