Trump-Kim summit venue named

By Jordi Bou

June 12, 2018 - The much-anticipated meeting between the U.S. President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place at the five-star Capella Hotel on the Singaporean island of Sentosa.

Once known as the “island behind death” due to its violent piracy past, and the site of a World War Two massacre, the now tranquil island of Sentosa provides a luxury backdrop to the historic summit.

Sources familiar with the arrangements said U.S. diplomats had picked the island resort, which is connected to the Singapore main island by a single causeway that can be easily closed off to traffic.
