Looking back at historic first Trump-Kim summit

Updated : 2019-02-22 12:14:17

A second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set for Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, from February 27-28. Trump and Kim met last June in Singapore, outreach the American president has said opened a path to peace. But that face-to-face hasn't resulted in any solid plan for ridding the North of nuclear weapons.
