The organizers of the meeting of the U.S. and North Korea leaders faced the problem of paying for the hotel in Singapore, where Kim Jong-Un is supposed to stay during the coming summit, as The Washington Post reports referring to the sources familiar with the negotiations of two states.
The news agency reports that Pyongyang expressed a desire that another state pays for the accommodation.
“The Fullerton, a magnificent neoclassical hotel near the mouth of the Singapore River, where just one presidential suite costs more than $6,000 per night. The United States is open to covering the costs, the two people said, but it’s mindful that Pyongyang may view a U.S. payment as insulting,” the message says.
Later, Singapore stated that it was ready to defray the part of the cost.
On June 1, Donald Trump, the U.S. President, said that he was ready to meet with Kim Jong-Un in Singapore on June 12.
On May 24, Trump cancelled the summit stating that the U.S. military was ready to react to the “reckless act” of North Korea, but the next day he said there was a chance to conduct the summit.
Later, Trump confirmed the information that the complicated talks on the organization of the summit has been restored.
