Washington Times National Security Team Leader Guy Taylor is in Vietnam, traveling with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ahead of the summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Stakes high for Trump, Kim in second denuclearization summit:
President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived here Tuesday amid heavy security for their second summit, as the president seeks to negotiate the elusive terms for ending Pyongyang’s menacing pursuit of a nuclear weapons program.
Mr. Trump landed at Hanoi’s airport on Air Force One several hours after Mr. Kim arrived on a lengthy journey by armored train and limousine. Vietnamese soldiers closed about 100 miles of highway from the border with China to the capital city of Hanoi for the final leg of Mr. Kim’s trip.
Speculation is mounting about how much concrete progress the two leaders can make over the next two days, and what security and economic sweeteners Mr. Trump is willing to offer in order to get concrete pledges from Mr. Kim on how and when he will curb his nuclear and missile arsenals.
