HANOI - US President Donald Trump says his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be held in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi.
The two men will meet on 27-28 February for talks expected to focus on persuading the communist state to give up its nuclear weapons programme.
Modern relations with Vietnam are seen as a model for US ties with the North.
A US envoy held "very productive" talks with the North to prepare for the new summit, Mr Trump said.
North Korea's sidelined human rights crisis
The first summit between President Trump and Mr Kim in Singapore last June generated significant coverage and optimism but delivered very few concrete developments.
Both sides said they were committed to denuclearisation but gave no details of how this would be carried out or verified.(FA)
