Sleepless in Pyongyang: North Korean media lauds Kim's grand tour
Updated : February 27, 2019 11:01 AM IST
Unlike with their first summit in Singapore in June, when North Korean state media stayed silent until after Kim arrived in the city-state, coverage this time began swiftly as he travelled through China to Vietnam by train.
Trump and Kim will meet on Wednesday and Thursday, betting their personal relationship can break a stalemate over the North's nuclear weapons and end more than 70 years of hostility.
State news agency KCNA confirmed on Wednesday Kim would stay on in Vietnam after the summit for a March 1-2 goodwill visit, making his trip at least a week, the longest known trip since he came to power in 2011.
