Director General, said; "We will be ready to act promptly and play an essential role in verifying North Korea's nuclear programme if a political agreement is reached".

Trump cancelled the on-off North Korea summit in late May, blaming the country's "tremendous anger and open hostility".

The White House late Tuesday night confirmed the selection of the Capella Hotel, located on a resort enclave accessible to Singapore's main island by a single causeway.

She added that Trump is getting daily briefings on North Korea in the runup to the landmark meeting.
