Puffer train: Kim's cigarette stop en route to Hanoi”

Trump made no comment to reporters on his aircraft, but had previously tweeted his hopes for a "very productive" meeting, reiterating that North Korea could enjoy economic riches if it gave up its nuclear weapons.

The dinner with Kim, preceded by a short one-on-one meeting, was only disclosed by Sanders during a Monday night refueling stop by Air Force One on its flight to Vietnam. -North Korea summit in Vietnam.

Before Singapore, they were slinging freaky insults - Trump calling Kim "rocket man" and Kim calling him a "dotard". "No two people alone have broad enough shoulders to take on the weight of such challenging issues spread out over 70 years".

Kim and Trump shook hands and smiled briefly in front of a row of their national flags at the Metropole hotel in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, before heading to dinner together.

They will hold "a series of back and forth" meetings on Thursday, she said.

In Hanoi, Kim and Trump have a more hard task of working out concrete steps toward denuclearization in return for US concessions.

The North wants increased security guarantees, which could come in the form of a declaration of an end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

While China has pushed for communist-based economic reforms in the East, Vietnam has chosen to approach the North Koreans at the joint summit with the U.S.in Hanoi using a different sentiment.

The Korean conflict ended in 1953 with an armistice, essentially a cease-fire signed by North Korea, China and the 17-nation, USA -led United Nations Command. Trump hopes that Kim, who is seeking relief from crushing US sanctions, will opt to give up his nuclear weapons program in exchange for help revitalizing his country's economy.

"North Korea's 18 million working age population would join Asia's production supply chain at an hourly wage cost lower than Vietnam's", the bank said in a research note.

USA intelligence officials have said there is no sign North Korea will ever give up its entire arsenal of nuclear weapons, which it sees as its guarantee of national security.

Since then, Trump has said that he and Kim fell "in love".

Trump scoffs at the doubters.

After months of high-level diplomacy, U.S. officials have made clear that they do not yet know if North Korea is prepared to give up its nuclear weapons. Recruits tend to be drawn from elite North Korean families.

The U.S. president appeared upbeat with Kim even as on the other side of the world in Washington his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen called Trump a "conman" who knew in advance about the release of stolen emails aimed at hurting his Democratic rival in the 2016 election campaign.

Instead of insisting on denuclearization first before the US considers any concessions, Biegun says, the U.S.is simultaneously pursuing denuclearization, establishing new U.S.

Handong University professor Kim Joon-hyung said the end-of-war declaration was supposed to be a gift from the USA in return for North Korea closing its Tongchang-ri missile test site.

USA concessions could include opening liaison offices or declaring an end to the technical state of war, they say.
