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.
Germany, France and the UK are urging North Korea to negotiate with the US. The move comes after North Korea's most recent string of ballistic missile launches.
The US and North Korea are moving ahead on talks, despite Pyongyang conducting at least nine missile launches since July. Does North Korea think testing missiles will strengthen its negotiating position?
After receiving a letter from Kim Jong Un, US President Trump said he was "never a fan" of joint US-South Korea war games. Trump indicated new talks could be ahead, even as North Korea continues to launch missiles.
