No, my fair ladies and gentlemen, you didn’t read the headline wrong.
Back in June last year, Singapore made history. Not for being the most kiasu country in the last 100 years. Not for being so obsessed with salted egg sauce they created goddamn Salted Egg burgers. But because of the whole Trump-Kim summit.
Which went well, thankfully.
But if you thought that we’re safe, that NSmen would not be activated again…
Your worst fears might not have come to pass.
For according to Straits Times, the second Trump-Kim summit is happening soon.
And Singapore might be hosting it once again.
In a statement released on Thursday (10 Jan), South Korean Foreign Affairs Ministry officials have expressed that Singapore and Vietnam are likely to be shortlisted, in their ongoing search for a host for the second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and United States President Donald Trump.
“(The venues you should pay attention to) are those mentioned by media including Vietnam, Singapore and Hawaii,” one ministry official said on condition of anonymity.
“But Hawaii is said to be an unrealistic location, as it doesn’t have a North Korean embassy there,” another official added.
As it is, the meeting site for the second summit has been drawing steady attention, a notion fueled by the fact that South Korean President Moon Jae-in had said on Thursday; that the summit will be taking place soon.
Mr Trump himself confirmed the statement, saying that the US was “negotiating a location” and that he expected the summit to take place in January or February.
Which, if you’ve not lost your mind recently, means it’s either this month or next month.
