Seoul (VNA) – Any concession given by US President Donald Trump or Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong-un at the upcoming DPRK-USA Hanoi Summit Vietnam will be significant as it will be a step forwards in the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, stated Spokesperson of the RoK presidential office Kim Eui-kyeom on February 27.

Speaking to the media, Kim said that it cannot be thought that only a big deal reached through the meeting means success, but a small also does, too.

The spokesperson’s announcement came following some statement that the second DPRK-USA summit will only reach some progress if a big deal is made when the DPRK agrees to implement positive steps in denuclearisation.

Kim Eui-kyeom held that a big deal must include smaller ones.

A White House statement revealed that the leaders of the US and the DPRK will have a 20-minute meeting before having dinner together on February 27. They are scheduled to have a series of official meetings on February 28.
