Vietnam keen to host next Trump-Kim summitVietnam has expressed interest in hosting the second US-North Korea summit, while high-level officials of the two countries were confirmed to have visited Vietnam recently, according to news reports.

High-ranking Vietnamese officials delivered such intent to the South Korean government, CNN reported, citing a South Korean government source.

Mark Lambert, the acting US deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, recently visited Vietnam, Yonhap News Agency reported, citing a diplomatic source, although it is unclear whether the trip was linked to planning for the second summit. Lambert mainly handles issues on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho also visited Vietnam for four days from November 29.

Ri met with Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and held talks with the country’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh.

Trump said early this month he expects the second summit to take place in January or February 2019 at one of three locations that he did not disclose.

Vietnam has been mentioned in the media as a potential venue for the envisioned summit, along with Mongolia and Indonesia.
