The summit between North Korea and the United States can be considered a partial success despite ending without an agreement, Hannes Mosler from the Institute for Korean Studies in Berlin tells DW.
US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are sitting down in Hanoi for their second meeting. Denuclearization, sanctions relief and a potential end to the Korean War are all on the table.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set to visit Russia for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin. Pyongyang is seeking Russian investment, while Moscow wants more access to North Korea's mineral resources.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says progress on the North Korean nuclear program has been made during his trip to east Asia. There had been little movement since a historic June meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.
North Korea has said it will dismantle its nuclear test site within two weeks. The announcement came less than 24 hours after the US promised Pyongyang a future "brimming with prosperity," if it denuclearizes.
