Sydney (VNA) – After the second summit between the US and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) concluded in Hanoi without any agreement, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) posted a story saying that the expectations for this summit were never “particularly high”.

ABC wrote that US President Donald Trump “framed this failed summit as having walking away – showing the US is in the driver's seat”, while DPRK leader Kim Jong-un will “seek to frame it as a mutual decision to part ways between two leaders of equal weighting.”

It added before arranging a meeting between their leaders, the US and the DPRK should let their lower-level diplomats make some progress.
