North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived in Singapore on Sunday, two days before his historic summit with US President Donald Trump.
"We welcomed the leader Kim Jong-un, who has just arrived in Singapore," Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said on Twitter, showing Kim shaking hands at Changi Airport.
Trump will also arrive in Singapore later in preparation for the historic summit, whose results are still uncertain, after decades of mistrust and tension between the two countries.
The North Korean nuclear arsenal, which has cost Pyongyang a series of international sanctions over the years, will be at the heart of all discussions.
The US presidential plane, Air Force One, is scheduled to land in Singapore at about 1230 GMT, carrying the first US president to directly negotiate the heir to Kim's ruling family.
The North Korean leader, who is smaller than 30 years of age, remains in limbo.
Washington has demanded that North Korea's nuclear weapons be "fully, verifiable and irreversible," while Pyongyang justifies its nuclear program for confronting the US threat.
North Korea has vowed several times to make the Korean peninsula nuclear-free, but this phrase carries several interpretations and has never revealed what concessions could be.
