Kim Jong Un takes ‘selfie’ with Singapore foreign minister

In this April 15, 2017, file photo, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un waves during a military parade in Pyongyang, North Korea. North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs have without doubt come at a severe cost. Even so, the North has managed to march ever closer to having an arsenal capable of attacking targets in the region and _ as demonstrated by its July 4 ICBM test launch _ the United States’ mainland.

Ankit Panda, senior editor for The Diplomat, posted the photo to Twitter on Monday.

Kim landed in Singapore over the weekend and has been heavily guarded. Photos of him or with him have been extremely limited, if at all.

His bodyguards have reportedly asked people to delete any photos they might have taken of Kim on their phones.

Reports say the North Korean dictator has been walking around rather relaxed, all things considered.

Both Kim and President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore and are preparing for their first meeting, which is slated to take place 9 p.m. EST on Monday, or Tuesday morning local time in Singapore.

This will be the first time a U.S. President and a sitting North Korean leader have met in person.

Trump on Sunday night tweeted: “Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!”

The President is expected to have a bilateral meeting and working lunch with Kim after a one-on-one meeting first thing Tuesday. Trump is then expected to have a presser before departing Singapore at 8 p.m. on Tuesday there, or 8 a.m. EST.

The White House announced the new schedule on Monday, which has the President leaving Singapore earlier than expected after discussions “have moved more quickly than expected.”
