US President Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore ahead of a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

The two leaders will meet on Tuesday to discuss the denuclearization of North Korea. Trump said on Saturday he’ll know “within the first minute” whether Kim is serious about making significant steps forward.

Kim, who landed in Singapore hours before Trump, is staying at the St. Regis hotel. This is the furthest away from Pyongyang Kim has gone since succeeding his father as the ruler of North Korea seven years ago.

Trump has previously cancelled the summit in response to “hostile” statements from North Korea, but two days later said “productive talks” were being held and expressed his willingness to hold the summit in its original date.
