He later left the airport using a road outside Changi Airport’s VIP Complex. The North Korean leader reportedly was followed and preceded by about 30 other vehicles.

Some Pan-Island Expressway exits towards Tuas were blocked off to ensure the smooth travel of Kim.

While this was happening, a third North Korean plane landed at Changi Airport at about 3.45pm. The Air Koryo aircraft is reportedly flying in the sister of the North Korean leader.

Kim Jong Un is set to meet Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong later today and President Donald Trump is set to arrive in Singapore tonight.
