Meeting between the President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, ended without a deal on denuclearization during their second summit gathering in eight months. “Sometimes you have to walk,” Donald Trump said after the talks failed.

Before the two leaders meet, Kim Jong-un said he would not attend the Vietnam summit with US President Donald Trump if he was not prepared to disarm nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula.

In response to questions from reporters during his meeting with Trump, Kim welcomed the opening of an American liaison office in North Korean capital Pyongyang.

Earlier, President Donald Trump said he would conclude a good agreement for North Korea and America.

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un began talks on the second day of their second summit after the two sides expressed their hope for progress on improving relations and the key issue of nuclear disarmament.

Trump and Kim met in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam, on Wednesday for a first round of talks and had dinner and were optimistic. Trump expressed satisfaction with the pace of the negotiations despite some criticism that they were not moving as fast as they were, and they held their first inconclusive summit in Singapore eight months ago.

Turning to the core of the contentious issues, both expressed cautious optimism. Trump stressed that talks aimed at countering North Korea’s nuclear threat should not be rushed.

“I say from the start that speed is not important to me, I strongly appreciate not testing nuclear weapons or missiles,” Trump told reporters before the talks, as he and Kim sat at a round table at the French-era Metropol Hotel. We only want to conclude the right deal. ”
