Hanoi (VNA) – Singapore will host the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong-un, which is slated for June 12, confirmed Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on May 10.

In a statement, the ministry voiced its hope that the meeting will promote prospects for peace in the Korean Peninsula. However, it did not reveal details of preparations for the meeting.

According to experts, Singapore, Southeast Asia’s financial hub, was chosen as the venue as the country is neutral in inter-Korean issues and maintains a high security level due to frequently hosting major world summits.
