So far, analysts pointed out after the announcement that the event had been held twice before in Japan, twice in China and twice in South Korea.

But a senior United States official said Singapore was still high on the list of potential sites for the summit, whose date still remains to be established.

Presidential adviser Moon Chung-in was asked not to create confusion regarding the president's stance, Kim said.
