The White House said on Thursday US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un did not reach an agreement at the end of two days of meetings but had constructive discussions on denuclearisation.
South Korea's KOSPI finished 1.7 percent lower, extending earlier losses just before the market close after both leaders brought forward the schedule of their second day of summit talks in Vietnam by almost two hours.
Spreadbetters expected European stocks to follow Asia's lead and open lower, with Britain's FTSE falling 0.3 percent, Germany's DAX shedding 0.2 percent and France's CAC losing 0.25 percent.
