US President Donald Trump's comment posted on his Twitter account. 

Hanoi (VNA) – The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) hold great potential to grow if it would denuclearise, US President Donald Trump has said.

His comments came at the outset of the second DPRK – US summit in Hanoi, which takes place on February 27 and 28.

According to a release from the White House, President Trump and DPRK leader Kim will have a 20-minute one-on-one meeting before dining together at the Sofitel Legend Metropole hotel on February 27. The dinner is scheduled to last for an hour and a half, ending at about 8:35 pm.
