President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that a second summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un will be held in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi on February 27 and 28.
“My representatives have just left North Korea after a very productive meeting and an agreed upon time and date for the second Summit with Kim Jong Un,” Trump said on Twitter according to nbcnews.com.
“I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace!” he added.
U.S. Special Envoy for North Korea Stephen Biegun held three days of talks in Pyongyang to prepare for the summit, the State Department said on Friday.
It said Biegun had agreed with his counterpart Kim Hyok Chol to meet again ahead of the summit.
Trump announced a pact aimed at the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula following his first summit with Kim in Singapore and has since suggested the country is no longer a threat.
But there’s been little concrete progress on a plan to denuclearize and U.S. officials have told NBC News that Pyongyang has continued to develop ballistic missiles at undeclared sites.
On Friday Trump also praised Kim, stating on Twitter that he would help drive North Korea to become “a great Economic Powerhouse.”
