NKorea Leader Kim Jong Un Tours Hanoi after Summit Breakdown

Friday, 01 March 2019 03:38 AM

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is heading out of his locked-down hotel in Hanoi for official meetings with Vietnamese leaders a day after his summit breakdown with President Donald Trump.

His talks with Trump failed Thursday over a dispute on how much sanctions relief the U.S. should give North Korea in return for nuclear disarmament steps.

Despite a senior North Korean official suggesting in a middle-of-the-night news conference that Kim may have "lost the will" for diplomacy, the North Korean leader seems to have emerged from the wreckage of the summit as a winner.

Kim on Friday looks like the confident leader of a nuclear-armed state, not an international pariah that starves its citizens as it builds nukes and missiles. He stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Trump.
