North Korean media hails Kim Jong Un’s overseas trip, downplays summit outcome

Rodong Sinmun runs four pages highlighting people's "single-minded unity" in leader's absence

North Korea's main daily newspaper on Wednesday morning featured extensive coverage of public reaction to Kim Jong Un's return to Pyongyang yesterday, with multiple articles stressing the importance of  “single-minded unity” of the country and downplaying the outcomes of last week's second DPRK-U.S. summit in Hanoi. 

The Rodong Sinmun, the chief organ of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), carried four pages of responses from industrial units, the public, and top government officials.
