The meeting is scheduled to be held at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa on June 12.

"We are asked every day whether delegations from the USA and North Korea will stay at our hotel", she added. "Discussions have been very positive and significant progress has been made", she said, referring to Ambassador Sung Kim.

Rodman, who played with the Pistons from 1986-1993, is no stranger to North Korea.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Newsweek on Wednesday.

North Korean officials in Singapore also needed to get sign-off on nearly every detail with their superiors in Pyongyang, leading to one- or two-day intervals before they could reach an agreement on even minor logistical details, the source said.

Trump last week said he no longer wanted to use that term and indicated that he was willing to embark on a lengthy series of talks that would ease pressure on the regime.

He claims to have given the North Korean leader a copy of Trump's ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal" as a birthday gift past year.

Meanwhile Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump's lawyer, said that Kim got "on his hands and knees and begged" for the summit to be rearranged after Mr Trump cancelled it.

"We're not paying for their expenses", she said, adding that the United States has not asked other countries to "pay for this".

The June 12 meeting will be the first meeting between sitting leaders of each country and will focus on North Korea's provocative nuclear weapons programs.

"I am getting a lot of requests from Japan and Korea", said an executive from one of the five-star hotels in Singapore.

"We've reached a point where the summit is extremely fragile and can easily be tipped out of balance", Graham Ong-Webb, a research fellow at Singapore's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, told AFP. "We're continuing to prepare for the president's summit".
