Trump-Kim Second Summit to Take Place in Vietnam
President Trump announced on Tuesday that his administration is planning a two-day summit with Kim Jong-un in Vietnam at the end of this month.
In the State of the Union address on Tuesday, Trump said, “As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
“Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one,” said Trump, “Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam.”
The two leaders met for the first time in June 2018 and signed an agreement to work towards building a peaceful relationship between the two nations.
Some pundits, however, argue that the first summit prompted no concrete solution in establishing denuclearization/disarmament in North Korea. Since their first meeting, North Korea reportedly continued to upgrade its largest nuclear testing site and expand its ballistic missile manufacturing site.
In a recent report by UN, North Korea is moving and hiding its nuclear weapons from US and has shown no change in nuclear and missile program.
