Donald Trump names Vietnam for summit with Kim Jong

A TV screen shows file footage of President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program seen at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul South Korea Wednesday. During Trump's State of the Union address he announced that the second

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will hold a two-day summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon) February 27-28 in Vietnam to continue his efforts to persuade Kim to give up his nuclear weapons.

In this June 12, 2018 photo, President Trump waves as he and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un look out from the Capella Hotel in Singapore during their historic summit.

"If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea", Trump said Tuesday night.

"Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one", he said.

The president said he would meet with Kim in Vietnam on February 27 and 28.

It was not immediately clear in which city the meeting would take place.

Trump met Kim Jong Un in June in Singapore, the first summit between leaders of the United States and North Korea.

Trump met Kim in June in Singapore, the first-ever summit between leaders of the two countries that have never formally ended the 1950-53 Korean War, months after the USA leader was threatening to obliterate North Korea over its nuclear and missile tests.

"North Korea relationship is best it has ever been with US", he tweeted.

U.S. job gains largest in 11 months; unemployment rate rises
Another issue to consider was that the ADP payrolls report had sort of tipped the hat to predict big jobs gains in January. The government on Friday also sharply revised down its estimates of job growth in November and December.

"The two leaders have already taken the first step toward shaking off the past 70 years of hostility in Singapore", spokesman Kim Eui-keum said. Trump has been eager to hold a second summit in spite of a lack of concrete progress in persuading North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.

A spokesman for South Korean President Moon Jae-in said that South Korea hopes the United States and North Korea will produce "more concrete and practical" agreements during the meeting.

It has also been used as a model of economic and political reform for impoverished and isolated North Korea to follow.

Trump on Saturday said he wanted to keep American soldiers in Iraq to "watch Iran", but official agreements between the USA and Iraq limit their remit to fighting terrorist groups such as the Islamic State and providing training and tactical advice to Iraqi forces.

A New York Times commentary by Mike Ives said Vietnam's good relations with the U.S., North Korea and South Korea was a factor in its being chosen as the venue for the summit.

"Great nations do not fight endless wars", Trump said, after his controversial orders to pull all USA troops out of Syria and half of the 14,000-strong force in Afghanistan. Nuclear testing has stopped. "He ratcheted up the rhetoric about "Little Rocket Man" at the start of his administration, threatening "fire and fury" should North Korea attack the U.S".

The Korean War ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.

Sanctions imposed by the United Nations and the U.S. have struck a major blow to North Korea's economy by limiting exports, leading to a sharp drop in the nation's foreign currency reserves, which enable the country to import essential products.
