He walked out of the Hanoi international airport along with two other officials: Kim Song-hye, director of the United Front Department’s tactical office, and Choe Kang-il, acting director-general for the foreign ministry’s North American affairs.

They were soon whisked away in a car.

Kim is expected to meet with his American counterpart, Stephen Biegun, to discuss what will be covered in the two-day talks between President Donald Trump and leader Kim Jong-un in Hanoi on Feb. 27 and 28.

Biegun departed from Washington DC for the city, according to the State Department.

In the pre-summit negotiations, they will likely draft a joint statement to be issued after the summit, which media is to call the Hanoi Declaration.
