SINGAPORE -- U.S. and North Korean officials are trying to narrow differences over exactly what denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula would look like. The last-minute talks are taking place the day before U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are to sit down together for their historic summit.

Since saying the summit would go ahead as scheduled, the Trump administration has been trying to dial down expectations, emphasizing that denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula will be "a process" and cannot be accomplished at one summit.
