SINGAPORE – Hosting Tuesday’s summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will cost local officials about $20 million, a hefty price Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said his country is “willing to pay” to be a witness to history.

“It is our contribution to an international endeavor that is in our profound interest,” Lee told reporters at the International Media Center, where thousands of journalists have descended to cover the pivotal moment when Trump and Kim meet face-to-face for talks that could lead to an even greater diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea.

The article goes on to state the following:

“When the two sides asked us to host the meeting, we cannot say no,” Lee said, claiming local authorities had to “step up” in order to cover heavy security demands from the U.S. and North Korea.

According to Singapore’s Law and Home Affairs minister, about 5,000 policemen and civil defense force officers have been deployed around the separate hotels where Trump and Kim are staying, and at the Capella resort on Sentosa Island where they will meet Tuesday morning.
