Trump-kim Meeting To Be Held In Vietnam On Feb 27-28US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will hold a much-anticipated second summit on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam, with possible locations being the capital, Hanoi, and the seaside city of Danang.

Trump made the announcement during his annual State of the Union address to the US Congress on February 5

“As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula,” Trump told Congress.

“Much work remains to be done but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one,” he added.

“Our hostages have come home, nuclear testing has stopped, and there has not been a missile launch in 15 months,” Trump said.

The meeting will be closely watched in a region nervously following developments on the Korean peninsula.

While North Korea has refrained from testing missiles or nuclear devices since the two leaders met in a breakthrough summit in Singapore on June 12 last year, and has returned the remains of many Americans killed in the Korean War, official talks on denuclearisation have not made any progress and official rhetoric on either side has been at odds.

Stephen Biegun, Washington’s envoy for North Korea, was scheduled to hold talks in Pyongyang to map out what he called “a set of concrete deliverables” for the second meeting.
