The nuclear summit between United States President Donald Trump and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong-un in Hanoi ended without an agreement on Thursday, the White House said.
In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said they had “very good and constructive meetings” and “discussed various ways to advance denuclearisation and economic driven concepts”. She however said “No agreement was reached at this time,” adding that their “respective teams look forward to meeting in the future”.
Kim answered unscripted questions from foreign reporters, and said there were “people who hold a sceptical view of our meeting” but pledged to seek “great, ultimately good results”.
“I think watching us have a great time will be like watching a scene from a fantasy movie,” he said. Recently, Trump delivered his second State of the Union address.
"The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda. It is the agenda of the American people.Many of us campaigned on the same core promises: to defend American jobs and demand fair trade for American workers; to rebuild and revitalize our Nation’s infrastructure; to reduce the price of healthcare and prescription drugs; to create an immigration system that is safe, lawful, modern and secure; and to pursue a foreign policy that puts America’s interests first.
There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage to seize it. Victory is not winning for our party. Victory is winning for our country. This year, America will recognize two important anniversaries that show us the majesty of America's mission, and the power of American pride," he said.
