President of the United States Donald Trump says next week's summit with his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong-un is a "one-time shot" at peace.

Trump and Kim plan to meet in Singapore on Tuesday.

"I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said during a free-wheeling press conference before he departed the ongoing G-7 talks for the Singapore summit with Kim.

Kim has the "opportunity the likes of which, almost, if you look into history, very few people have ever had", Trump said.

"It's about attitude", Trump said of the summit before meeting Thursday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

"I'm very clear that we made a big difference in their lives".

In another tweet he called Mueller's appointment by the Department of Justice in 2017 "totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL". Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., also said he has seen no evidence of that.

Trump sent the city-state spinning when he announced that the summit would be held there last month, only to cancel it a week later. (Carlos Barria/Reuters) North Korea handing over its nuclear weapons, however, is nearly certainly not going to happen at this meeting.

He said the police officers who stopped him at Singapore's Changi Airport searched his bags and questioned him for about two hours before letting him go.

An article on May 29 in the Rodong Sinmun, the official party newspaper, slammed US media reports that North Korea is seeking major "economic aid" from the United States.

"You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used", he said in a letter to Kim.

Mr Trump has positioned himself as the only one who could make progress on the North Korean threat, and in so doing, declared world peace within reach.

I don't think I have to prepare very much.

Vladimir Putin: West wrongly sees Russia as a threat
Putin's statement comes after Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov met with Kim last week to discuss his upcoming summit with Trump. Russian President Vladimir Putin says the government will be looking to streamline the tax system in order to fight poverty.

"It's the formative experience in their life and they're committed to the Australia-Korea relationship in a much deeper way to the more cosmopolitan South Korean who goes skiing in America", Dr Dalton told SBS News.

The nations' top diplomat also told Phoenix TV that while he is sure Chinese objections to Trump's trade policies will come up during his visit to Beijing - his first as Secretary of State - a readout of the meeting in Singapore will drive the agenda. Seeing Nobel Peace Prize laurels and eyeing potential to show up his critics at home and overseas, Trump is granting Kim the global legitimacy he's long sought in hopes of securing a legacy-defining accord.

Getting a legally binding peace treaty is unlikely in Singapore because "you have to disentangle a lot of United Nations security issues, Security Council issues", said Christopher Hill, a former lead USA nuclear negotiator with the North, who also noted that "as a practical matter, China has to be there".

During a promotional event dubbed the "real" Trump-Kim summit, the men waved at shoppers as they walked through the crowded Bugis Junction mall. The newspaper said the vehicles weren't from a local authorized dealer, which suggests the cars were brought in specifically for the summit and may be used by Kim.

"I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside, we'll see", Trump said in Quebec of Kim.

"Our people have been working very, very well with the representatives of North Korea".

Durant also hit a go-ahead three-pointer in the finals past year against Cleveland with 45 seconds remaining. I just internalize it a little bit as I get older a little bit more than I did as a younger player.

If it were a protracted process, Trump would stop enforcing sanctions against Pyongyang, and South Korea and China would return to unconditional subsidization of the Kim regime, Lee said.
