Is this the first ever public selfie with Kim Jong-un?

In what looks a week of firsts for North Korean international relations, we may have just seen Kim Jong-un's first ever public selfie.

The North Korean leader is in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's historic summit with US president Donald Trump and seems to be out and about taking in the popular tourist attractions that the country has to offer.

Vivian Balakrishnan, Singapore's foreign minister posted what is believed to be Kim's first public selfie.

According to BusinessInsider.com, Balakrishnan is playing a very active role as summit host, having already received Trump and his American delegation.

He also visited North Korea last week where he said he was impressed with the "clean, modern, and beautiful [city] with clear evidence of ongoing construction" in Pyongyang.

The summit is the first ever between a sitting American president and North Korea's leader.
