North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump both arrived in Vietnam on Tuesday, the eve of their second summit at which they will tackle how to implement a North Korean pledge to give up its nuclear weapons.
Trump flew into the capital Hanoi on Air Force One, touching down just before 9pm. (1400 GMT).
Trump and Kim are expected to address a joint press conference after the eagerly awaited meeting, slated to be held on February 27 and 28 – unlike last year’s Singapore summit where Trump held a solo presser after the meet.
Earlier in the day, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reached Vietnam in his famed green armoured train and received a red carpet welcome ahead of the Hanoi Summit.
The North Korean leader had embarked on the two-and-half day journey, choosing to undertake a 60-hour-long train journey to the border city of Dang Dong in Vietnam which will be followed by a car ride to Hanoi.
The US has reinforced that sanctions would only be eased once full denuclearisation is achieved by Pyongyang – a stand which the US still stuck to even with the second summit drawing near.
