Trump announces second North Korea summit

Trump announces second North Korea summit

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un will meet again.

This time, the pair will reunite on February 27th in the Vietnamese capitol of Hanoi.

The President announced the summit on Twitter Friday, after what he said was a "very productive" meeting between a U.S. delegation and North Korea this past week.

State Department officials said a special representative spent three days in Pyongyang preparing for the summit.

They said the agenda included advancing Trump and Chairman Kim's Singapore summit commitments of complete denuclearization, transforming U.S.-North Korea relations, and building peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Trump has been keen for a second summit despite a lack of significant moves by North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.

He has stressed economic benefits to North Korea if it does so.

Trump alluded to a second meeting with Kim in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday.

He said much work remained to be done in the push for peace with North Korea, but cited the halt in its nuclear testing and no new missile launches in 15 months as proof of progress.

North Korea has complained the U.S. has done little to reciprocate for its freezing of nuclear and missile testing, and urged secirity guarantees and a lifting of U.S.-led sanctions.

The upcoming summit will take place during a busy week in Washington, as former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is scheduled to testify to the House Intelligence Committee at the same time as the summit.
