Feb 25, 2019

New Delhi, Feb 25 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un are expected to address a joint press conference after the much-anticipated second summit between Washington and Pyongyang, reports Yonhap News Agency. The second summit, slated to be held in Hanoi on February 27 and 28, comes after the first landmark US-North Korea summit was held in Singapore in June last year. North Korea had agreed to completely denuclearise during the first meeting - a move which was hailed as a major stride by the international community. The United States has, until now, reinforced that relief in sanctions would only be given after North Korea carries out complete denuclearisation.Both the sides aim at working towards the concretisation of steps for a peaceful Korean Peninsula, including complete denuclearisation, when Kim sits down with Trump in Hanoi this week.
