US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un have set a date for their much awaited meeting which will be held in Singapore on June 12. 

Now however, US officials have another dilemma. Due to economic reasons, Pyongyang is requiring that another country pay for the North Korean leader and his delegation's hotel bill, The Washington Post reports.

    According to the Post, Kim Jong Un is demanding to stay at the luxury, five-star Fullerton hotel, where a presidential suite costs more than US $6,000 a night.

    However, according to the Post, the United States is open to covering the costs, but Pyongyang may view the US payment as insulting. So now there is talk of the host country, Singapore, paying for the North Korean delegation’s bill.
