BEIJING, June 7 (Yonhap) -- Singapore's top diplomat left for Pyongyang on Thursday to prepare next week's historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, sources said.

Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan was seen at an international airport in Beijing boarding an Air Koryo flight bound for Pyongyang. He is to stay in Pyongyang until Friday.

He is likely to fine-tune with the North Koreans details on security and protocol arrangements for the summit to be held in the city state on Tuesday.

He is expected to meet North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and pay a courtesy call to Kim Yong-nam, the nominal head of the state.
