Senior North Korean and U.S. diplomats will hold talks here Monday in a bid to come up with a draft agreement to be presented to the leaders of the two countries, according to officials.

Ambassador Sung Kim, the State Department's top Korea expert, plans to open a working-group meeting with Choe Son-hui, the North's vice foreign minister, at 10 a.m., according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

It comes the day before a historic summit between the communist nation's leader Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump.

Choe and Kim already had several rounds of discussions at Panmunjom, along the inter-Korean border, that were reportedly focused on summit agenda items, including denuclearization and security assurance measures.

The North's leader arrived in Singapore on Sunday, his first-known trip to Southeast Asia since taking power in 2011.

He soon had a meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, during which he expressed gratitude for providing logistical support for the summit.

Kim was also quoted as saying that, "If the summit produces positive outcomes, then the Singaporean government's effort will be recorded in history forever."

Trump also flew into Singapore the same day shortly after attending the G-7 summit in Canada. (yonhap)
