Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un Meeting: 'A thriving partnership' on cards in Vietnam
New Delhi : With Vietnam being finalised as the venue for the US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, there comes a strong possibility of moving beyond conflict and division toward a thriving partnership, the US State Department said on Thursday.
State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters that US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun was in Pyongyang to prepare the February 27-28 summit.
The new meeting will be aimed at the progress made on the commitments made during the first meeting in Singapore in June.
Among the major commitments, complete denuclearization, transformation of US-North Korea relations and building a lasting peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula were included, he said.
He said US-Vietnamese history "reflects the possibility for peace and prosperity."
"We moved past conflict and division towards the thriving partnership we enjoy today," Mr Palladino said.
