Trump Announces 2nd Summit With Kim Jong Un in Vietnam

Communist-run but with capitalist leanings, and a friend to both the United States and North Korea, Vietnam will host the next summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jung Un from February 27-28.

"So what the president has to do at the second summit is he has to incentivize or make clear to Kim that he's got to move toward negotiations or he's not going to get another summit", Morell said.

A spokesperson for Vietnam's foreign ministry said in a tweet on Wednesday that the country welcomed the summit and "strongly supports" dialogue on peace, security and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

A forward-looking North Korea might learn something from Vietnam's impressive economic growth due to "bold economic reforms, proactive integration into the world economy, and excellent partnerships with strategic partners, with the US and South Korea among the most important ones", Khuong said.

"Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one", he said.

If the meeting takes place as planned, it will be Trump's second time coming face-to-face with Kim over the previous year.

Japan said it hoped the agreement Trump and Kim reached last June, including the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, would be implemented "thoroughly and swiftly", while Australia said it was important to enforce worldwide sanctions against North Korea to show Pyongyang that "the world is equally committed" to its denuclearization. But the two sides have failed to agree on what that means, and how or when it will be carried out.

"The two leaders have already taken the first step toward shaking off the past 70 years of hostility in Singapore", spokesman Kim Eui-keum said.

Iraqis in the capital Baghdad said United States army forces have been walking around the city accompanied by the Iraqi army, Al-Khaleej Online reported.

US envoy Stephen Biegun is due to meet his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok Chol on Pyongyang on Wednesday, as he attempts to push forward preparations for the summit and advance a plan to reinvigorate talks about denuclearization.

In an interview with Bloomberg on January 18, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc had also said that Vietnam would be happy to host the second U.S-North Korea summit.

The country could also pose as a good example for North Korea because it hasn't become a liberal democracy to be economically successful.

"President Trump is ready to end this war", Biegun said last week. It has complained that the United States has done little to reciprocate its freezing of nuclear and missile testing and dismantling of some nuclear facilities.

"We do not know whether we will achieve an agreement - but we do know that after two decades of war, the hour has come to at least try for peace", he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures during his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., February 5, 2019. North Korea has an embassy in Hanoi and reports suggest that Kim Jong Un is interested in following Vietnam's economic and political example.
