CAPITALS — US President Donald Trump has said next week's summit with Kim Jong-un is a "one-time shot" at peace.

A meeting between Mr Trump and the North Korean leader Mr Kim will take place on Tuesday in Singapore.

Mr Trump described the summit as a "mission of peace", but said that the two leaders were in "unknown territory in the truest sense".

Mr Trump has now departed the G7 meeting of world leaders in Canada for the summit.

Speaking to the media before his departure, Mr Trump said the North Korean leader could do "something very positive for his people, for himself, his family".

Washington hopes the talks will kick-start a process that eventually sees Mr Kim give up his nuclear weapons.

The two leaders have had an extraordinary up-and-down relationship over the past 18 months.

When they finally come face to face on Tuesday morning at a hotel on the island resort of Sentosa, it will be the first time a North Korean leader has met a sitting US president.
