U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Un have agreed to continue productive discussions on denuclearization, Pyongyang's state media said on Friday, hours after the second summit between the two leaders ended abruptly with no agreement in Hanoi. 

2019-03-01 09:31 GMT+8

2019-03-01 10:12 GMT+8

It now seems apparent to me that from the moment Democratic People's Republic of Korea's leader Kim Jong Un decided to stay at the same Hanoi hotel as Western journalists during the summit, he was laying the groundwork for two messages: I deserve to be a global leader and I will engage publicly with the media to tell my story.

2019-03-01 13:33 GMT+8

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Un is scheduled to leave the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi at around noon Saturday and depart from the country via the Dong Dang railway station on the border with China in the afternoon, a Vietnamese foreign ministry source said.

2019-02-28 21:31 GMT+8
