VOA: Singapore Revises Cost of Trump-Kim Summit25 June 2018 | 02:22 | FOCUS News Agency
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said most of the cost went toward security for U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“It is a cost we are willing to pay” to contribute to a meeting that is in Singapore’s “profound interest,” Lee said.
The tiny city-state rolled out a massive security operation for the summit, deploying thousands of police officers. It also paid the expenses of the large North Korean delegation, including Kim's stay at the posh St. Regis hotel, according to the BBC.
Both leaders spent three days in Singapore for the June 12 meeting.
