White House: No agreement reached between Trump and Kim
The White House says no joint agreement was reached between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at their closely watched second summit.
“No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future,” press secretary Sarah Sanders wrote in a statement.
Sanders added: “President Donald J. Trump of the United States and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea had very good and constructive meetings in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27-28, 2019.”
“The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts,” she said.
After their planned working lunch was called off, amid speculation a signing ceremony may not be taking place today either, the motorcades for both President Trump and North Korean leader Kim are now en route back to their hotels.
South Korean stocks continued to fall after the apparent change in summit schedule between the two leaders.
