The KCNA news agency said the two leaders will exchange wide-ranging and profound views during their meeting at the five-star Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island.
It reported that the discussions are going to focus on the issue of building a permanent and durable peacekeeping mechanism on the Korean peninsula, the issue of realising the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, and other issues of mutual concern.
