North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday morning in Pyongyang that leader Kim Jong-un is in Singapore for Tuesday’s historic summit with President Trump — breaking its silence to citizens who have long been kept in the dark about the timing of the momentous occasion, the AP reports.

The details: A report by the outlet, the AP notes, said both leaders will exchange “wide-ranging and profound views” on establishing a new relationship, building a “permanent and durable peace mechanism” and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
