The two leaders will meet in Hanoi on Wednesday and Thursday, eight months after their historic summit in Singapore, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

But Vietnam's Foreign Ministry said Monday that Trump is scheduled to land at Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on the eve of the talks.

Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airways is due to sign a deal with Boeing to purchase 10 planes on the sidelines of the summit, an airline executive said on Sunday.

I just don't want testing. Channel News Asia reported that the pair staged a fake summit outside the capital's Opera House before a sea of reporters and security personnel. There had been speculation about a possible meeting between Ri Sol-ju and Melania Trump, but North Korea.

The ultra-tight security will be appreciated by North Korean authorities, who are extremely vigilant about the safety of Kim, the third member of his family to rule the North with absolute power. Kim speaks of an "historic summit", while Trump says it was a "fantastic meeting".

But he added that he didn't feel a sense of urgency about reaching an agreement as long as North Korea continues a halt on testing of nuclear weapons and missiles.

The train station on the Vietnam-China border where Kim Jong Un is expected to arrive by rail was closed to the public and surrounded by armed guards on February 25, days ahead of the North Korean leader's summit with Donald Trump.

Pyongyang conducts a new intercontinental ballistic missile test in November, with Trump later calling Kim a "sick puppy".

But Pyongyang in July conducts two intercontinental ballistic missile tests that Kim says "confirmed all the U.S. mainland is within our striking range".

During the first meet between the two leaders in June 2018, the impersonator was in Singapore.

The United States has for years demanded North Korea's complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation, before any concessions will be granted.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has repeatedly spoken of the North Korea summit as a way to protect Americans, raising worries in the region.

"There are many things he could do to demonstrate his commitment to denuclearization", Pompeo said.

Moon thinks a USA security guarantee will prompt North Korea to speed up denuclearization and lead to a permanent peace regime on the Korean peninsula. This is the first visit to Vietnam by a top DPRK leader after 55 years since Kim Jong-un's grandfather and founding leader of the DPRK Kim Il Sung visited the Southeast Asian country in 1964.

"The scene where President Moon shook hands with Chairman Kim and stepped over to the North's military demarcation line is memorable", he said.

"Trump is not young, but I think he is very powerful".

"The main concern is whether the president, besieged by domestic distractions, will give away too much, and take a bad deal that leaves the United States less secure", said Victor Cha, a former White House official who took part in North Korea talks under previous Republican administrations.

Trump scoffs at the doubters, citing a freeze in North Korea's nuclear and missile tests since 2017, and saying the United States would have gone to war with North Korea if he had not been president.
