U.S., North Korea “deepen mutual respect and trust” in Hanoi summit: KCNA

State media highlights denuclearization goal, says two sides will "continue productive dialogues"

North Korean state-run media gave a largely positive review of Thursday’s summit meetings in Hanoi between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, calling it an event of “great significance in building mutual trust.”

A report published Friday by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) referred multiple times to the goals of creating a new relationship and to “completely denuclearize” the Korean Peninsula as spelled out in the Singapore agreement signed last June.
