SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s private jet departed from Pyongyang on Sunday headed for Singapore, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency said without providing further details.

A different cargo plane which accompanied Kim Jong Un on his recent visit to China also departed Pyongyang and was likely headed for Singapore on Sunday, ahead of Kim’s summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim is due to meet Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the city-state later on Sunday, Singapore’s ministry of foreign affairs said in a statement.
