"Through these series of meetings, I'm confident we're moving in the right direction.It could be nothing short of tragic to let this opportunity go to waste", Pompeo said.

Sanders said that the White House "advance team" - which features military, security, technical and medical staff - were already on the ground in Singapore.

The announcement of the timing for the first meeting between the two leaders came just three days after Trump hosted a senior North Korean delegation at the White House bearing a letter from Kim.

USA and North Korean officials are continuing to lay the groundwork ahead of the summit.

Rodman, who was a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom in 2006, has visited North Korea five times in the past and has taken some of the credit for getting the two leaders together.

Sanders said Monday the meeting will take place at 9 a.m. local time on June 12 (9 p.m. ET on June 11).

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman will reportedly be in Singapore later this month for the planned summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, according to the New York Post.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would "allow a western hamburger franchise" into the country as a show of goodwill, according to an intelligence report detailed by USA officials to NBC.

The White House late Tuesday night confirmed the selection of the Capella Hotel, located on a resort enclave accessible to Singapore's main island by a single causeway.

"We will monitor related developments", ministry spokesperson Baik Tae-hyun told reporters.

The Trump administration wants complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation in North Korea and favours only lifting economic sanctions once that has been achieved.

There have been fears that tensions will burst over into full-out war between North Korea and its western allies.

These include the central region, which is home to its foreign ministry, the US embassy and several hotels, and Sentosa Island in the south, where the summit is scheduled to take place.
