Kim Jong-un's bodyguards jog by car ahead of Singapore summit


North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has brought his running bodyguards to Singapore ahead of his highly-anticipated summit meeting with President Donald Trump.

His suit-clad security detail were spotted running alongside his black limousine shortly after the North Korean leader touched down at Changi Airport on Sunday.

Footage showed the bodyguards jogging next to the car, complete with tinted windows and two large North Korean flags fluttering on the hood, as they escorted Kim to the closely guarded St. Regis Hotel where he is staying.

His convoy included more than 20 vehicles, including an ambulance.

The bodyguards made headlines in April when video emerged of them sprinting next to the leader’s car during a landmark meeting with South Korea.

Kim had arrived on an Air China flight after dispatching two decoy flights as a diversionary tactic given the leader’s fears of assassination during the summit.

His trip to Singapore is the furthest he has traveled from his home country since assuming the mantle of Supreme Leader. 

Kim is said to be concerned that someone will try to assassinate him.  

Hours after Kim arrived in Singapore, Trump descended from Air Force One.

He was whisked away to his hotel, driving along a route lined with police and photo-snapping onlookers.

Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he met with other world leaders whose countries make up the Group of Seven. 

Kim and Trump are set to meet Tuesday morning in the first summit of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting U.S. president.

The North Korean leader smiled broadly Sunday evening as he met with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. 

‘The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America, and thanks to your sincere efforts … we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit,’ Kim told Lee through an interpreter. 

Trump is set to meet with Lee on Monday.

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying that it may take more than one meeting.
