Second North Korea summit will be in Hanoi, Trump says

Trump tweeted the venue on Friday in Washington, saying Biegun had just left North Korea after a "productive meeting" on the summit.

In a pair of tweets, Trump praised Kim and said his representatives had just left North Korea after a "productive meeting" on the February 27-28 summit.

Officials have said that there must first be tangible progress in denuclearization negotiations between the United States and the North so that Washington can ease sanctions and allow inter-Korean cooperation projects to move forward.

"North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse", Trump added.

Ahead of his visit to the Koreas, Bigeun said last week that Kim had committed to "the dismantlement and destruction of North Korea's plutonium and uranium enrichment facilities" during a September summit with Moon and at a meeting with the USA secretary of state in October.

Trump announced the exact location on Twitter- only the country, Vietnam, was previously known- for the follow-on to the leaders' summit in Singapore past year as he hailed "very productive" preparatory talks between diplomats from the two countries. We have some hard work to do with DPRK between now and then. "I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace". North Korea's state media have not commented on the plans.

He gave no other details on Biegun's talks in Pyongyang and declined to say how long he would stay there.

Trump also tweeted that he has hope that North Korea will grow as an economic power as it distances itself from its nuclear missile program.

Relations between the two Koreas made strides previous year, with President Moon Jae-in holding summit talks three times with the North's leader and agreeing on a series of economic and other cooperation projects.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he would reconcile policies with Trump on the issues of nuclear arms, missiles and the North's abduction of Japanese nationals.

Kim Yo Jong has solicited reliable figures from the North Korea government and its ruling Workers' Party to serve as her aides, making them State Affairs Commission members.

But tough sanctions have limited what they can do, with Washington insisting on keeping up economic pressure until North Korea takes stronger steps toward irreversibly and verifiably relinquishing its nuclear weapons.

They were expected to meet in mid-February on the sidelines of an worldwide forum in Germany but dropped the plan after Pompeo canceled his European trip, a senior Japanese Foreign Ministry official said.
