Vietnam wants to host 2nd Trump-Kim summit: CNN

December 13, 2018

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 (Yonhap) — Vietnam has expressed an interest in hosting the envisioned second summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported Thursday.

High-ranking Vietnamese officials delivered that intent to the South Korean government, according to a South Korean government source quoted by the news channel.

Vietnam has been cited in the media as a potential site for the next summit, along with Mongolia and Indonesia.

North Korea, which is largely isolated from the international community, has embassies in all three countries.

Trump said early this month that he expects the second summit to happen in January or February, in one of three locations he didn’t name.

He had earlier ruled out Singapore, the venue of the first summit in June.
