The meeting between U.S. and North Korean leaders (Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un) would hold on June 12, at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. This was disclosed on Tuesday by the White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders.
“We thank our great Singaporean hosts for their hospitality,” Sanders wrote in a post on Twitter announcing the venue for the planned June 12 meeting.
Sentosa and the linkway to the island from Harbourfront have earlier been designated by the Singapore government as a special event area for the upcoming summit for the two leaders, reports Channelsnewsasia.
This came in a public order published in the Government Gazette online on Tuesday (Jun 5), and adds to a previous announcement that the area around Shangri-La Hotel Singapore has been designated as a special event area for the summit.
It said extra security measures would be in force for these areas in the period between Jun 10 and 14.
Diplomatic Watch gathered that weapons, flares, loud hailers, sound systems and banners will be banned in the special zone, with police allowed to conduct body searches on those entering the area.
