"May it lead to a successful outcome," Lee wrote in a Twitter reply to Trump. 

Trump tweeted on Thursday that the highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong-un and himself will take place in Singapore on June 12, and said," We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" 

Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed on late Thursday that the Trump-Kim summit is to be held in the city-state. 

Singapore is pleased to host the meeting between the two leaders on June 12, said the ministry in a statement, adding, "we hope this meeting will advance prospects for peace in the Korean Peninsula."
