The Second Trump-Kim Summit Has Ended Without A Deal


0

The second nuclear summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ended without a deal, the White House said Thursday, after talks in Hanoi were abruptly cut short.

“The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts. No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Reporters at the scene said motorcades carrying the two leaders had departed from the summit site in Hanoi heading back to their hotels and a previously-scheduled lunch and signing ceremony had been canceled.

A press conference with Trump was scheduled for 2 p.m. local time (2 a.m. ET).

Earlier in the day, Kim had expressed an apparent willingness to denuclearize his country.

“If I’m not willing to [denuclearize, I] wouldn’t be here right now,” Kim said in response to a US reporter’s question.

“That might be the best answer you’ve ever heard,” Trump replied.
