Sejuti Mourin: United States President Donald Trump is reportedly leaving the G7 meeting in Canada earlier than scheduled in order to travel to Singapore for his much-anticipated summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday (June 10), a few hours earlier than initially planned.
His route from Canada and his new arrival time in Singapore were not announced.
The President’s previous departure time was set at 2.15pm today (2.15am Sunday Singapore time) and he had been expected to land in Singapore at 11pm tomorrow.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement, “President Trump will depart the G-7 summit at Charlevoix at 10.30am Saturday (10.30pm Saturday Singapore time), following the session on Women’s Empowerment.” “The President will travel directly to Singapore from Canada in anticipation of his upcoming meeting with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday.” The White House did not give any reason for the early departure. The G-7 summit is scheduled to wrap up later today. It was also announced that US deputy assistant for international economic affairs Everett Eissenstat will represent United States for the remainder of the sessions.
