The Vietnam summit failed because North Korea needed all of the sanctions lifted, said US President Donald Trump during a press conference after a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. “I could’ve signed today but I want to do it right than do it fast,” said Trump. Trump and then Kim and did not arrive at an agreement during their two-day summit in Vietnam, said the White House, adding they still had constructive discussion posts on denuclearisation.
“President Donald J. Trump of the United States Of America and Chairman Kim Jong-un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea had great and then constructive meetings in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27-28, 2019. The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and then economical driven concepts. No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future.”
Both together leaders left the venue of their summit, the Metropole hotel , at around 7:25 a.m. without participating in a planned lunch together and then returned to their hotels. There will not be a joint signing ceremony and then Trump is currently scheduled to hold a solo press conference, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
