"In support of the DPRK-USA Singapore Summit, road closures will be effected along roads in the vicinity of Changi Airport towards Tanglin Road", the Singapore Police Force said in a statement.

The US president had attended the G7 summit on Friday in Canada and left early to fly to Singapore to prepare for the landmark summit.

"As the venue and time of the summit have already been announced, security for Kim Jong Un will be tighter than for any other VIPs", said the professor, who was the first academic to establish a university major in South Korea on guarding and protection.

At stake at the summit are North Korea's nuclear weapons and peace on the Korean peninsula.

The Singapore Police Force reminded "all foreigners visiting Singapore to abide by our laws", adding, "Members of the media who commit any offense in Singapore will not be accredited and thus will not be able to cover the Summit between the United States and North Korea".

A plane believed to be carrying North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un approaches to land in Singapore June 10, 2018.

It also promotes the role of the oceans and the importance of conserving and protecting the marine environment. He said that the per capita plastic consumption in India is much lower than in many parts of the world .

The U.S. administration officials included on the trip are Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser John Bolton, Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin, Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel, National Security Council-Asia Director Matt Pottinger, senior adviser Steven Miller, press secretary Sarah Sanders and NSC communications official Sarah Tinsley.

He added in addition to using bulletproof vehicles, North Korea's security detail would likely deploy layers of protection surrounding the summit venue and try to divert attention from Kim Jong Un's auto whenever he moves. Despite North Korea being one of the world's poorest countries, enormous resources were spent on the ballistic missile and nuclear programmes. It also successfully tested missiles that had enough range to reach the United States mainland.

In his New Year message, Kim extended an olive branch to enemy South Korea, sent a team to the Winter Olympics there in February, and held two summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April and May.

Many remain skeptical Kim will ever completely abandon his nuclear programs. For Trump, a successful summit will see him achieve badly needed kudos on the worldwide stage ahead of congressional elections in November.

"In the last few years, it's been building nuclear weapons".

Singaporean media reported that he had arrived at 2.38 p.m. local time (0738 UTC) on Sunday.
