February 27, 2019 – U.S. President Donald Trump is now in Hanoi to meet North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un for the Hanoi Summit. This meeting will be their second gathering since the two last meets last year.
Before the U.S. Leader’s second meet with the North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump headed to the Presidential Palace in Hanoi for a bilateral talk with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong. The Vietnamese president said that his country had made all the efforts to guarantee the best conditions for this significant gathering.
Meeting President Nguyen Phu Trong
The Vietnamese provided a warm welcome for the U.S. Leader and rolled out the red carpet for both Presidents and their entourages, as well as the international media and diplomatic corp who will also be present later for President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un’s meet.
Both Leaders assessed US and Vietnamese business deals during their meeting. Most of these deals are from the aviation sector. Vietnam Airlines and Sabre signed a non-binding agreement outlining the terms and details of an understanding of providing technology solutions. Also, Vietnam’s Bamboo airways settled to purchase tent 787 Dreamliners from U.S aviation giant Boeing.
The two leaders also posed for a photo op after the meet. President Trump admired the Vietnamese economy, adding that the country is an example of what a state could achieve with right thinking.
This statement is more synonymous to the U.S.President’s tweet this morning that North Korea’s economy could achieve this level of prosperity if the Korean Leader ceases its nuclear weapon development.
Trump’s Meeting With The Vietnamese Prime Minister
After meeting with the Vietnamese Leader, next on Trump’s schedule is to meet Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
President Trump and Prime minister Nguyen praised each other during their bilateral talks, complimenting each others’ accomplishments in the past year. Nguyen commended the US economy’s success while congratulating Trump for his performance. Consecutively, Trump credited the Prime Minister for the massive growth the country had achieved since Trump’s last visit in 2017.
Nguyen said that he cherished the meaning of peace and added that “it is each nation’s responsibility and duty to contribute towards global peace.”
