The first summit in June 2018 between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised a lot but has since delivered little. On Wednesday, the two leaders will meet again in Vietnam, and there’s little clarity on what to expect from the meeting’s outcome.
The US President has been the driving force behind this week’s summit, aiming to re-create the global spectacle of his first meeting with the North Korean leader last year. He’s also said he’s in no rush to get North Korea to prove it has abandoned its nuclear weapons.
“I’m not in a rush. I don’t want to rush anybody, I just don’t want testing. As long as there’s no testing, we’re happy,” Trump told a meeting of US governors on Sunday.
