A smiling Kim Jong Un has been pictured enjoying a late-night stroll in Singapore ahead of his landmark meeting with Donald Trump.

The North Korean dictator was surrounded by heavy security amid reports he was heading to the luxury Marina Bay Sands - a 55-floor hotel with a rooftop bar and infinity pool.

Singapore's foreign minster Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted a selfie of himself with Mr Kim during the surprise walkabout.

His stroll came just hours before his summit with Donald Trump, where he will become the first North Korean leader to meet with a US president.

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Mr Trump's "ultimate objective" will be the "irreversible" denuclearisation of Mr Kim's regime.

The president's most senior expert on weapons of mass destruction has joined him in Singapore for the summit.
