Updated : February 28, 2019 10:33 AM IST
Kim and Trump began the second day of talks earlier on Thursday in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, with both expressing hopes for progress on improving relations and the key issue of denuclearisation.
While the United States is demanding North Korea give up all of its nuclear and missile programmes, the North wants to see the removal of a US nuclear umbrella for its Asian allies such as South Korea and Japan.
Trump and Kim have a series of meetings scheduled at the Metropole and will later hold a "joint agreement signing ceremony", the White House said.
