North Korea summit: uninvited guests could foil Trump's objectives

Donald Trump hopes to choose from a quick and easy menu at next month’s Singapore summit with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un.

The US president wants instant results, primarily a headline-grabbing nuclear weapons deal in return for food aid, investment and other support.

If sanctions are lifted, the deal could even include the launch of an American hamburger franchise in Pyongyang, according to a CIA report.

But rival countries wanting to get in on the action and hoping to make strategic and business gains, are hustling to ensure the summit outcome suits them too – assuming the meeting goes ahead.

The competing interests of China, Russia, Japan, South Korea – and of Kim himself – may upset Trump’s hopes.
