Hanoi is taking final steps of setting up an international media center for the upcoming meeting between leaders of the U.S. and North Korea in the Vietnamese capital. U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet in Hanoi on February 27-28, their second meeting in less than a year after a historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018. Around 2,600 foreign reporters have registered to work at the high-profile event representing international media agencies, according to Vietnam’s Deputy Foreign Minister Le Hoai Trung. Additionally, hundreds of Vietnamese journalists are also expected to be reporting from Hanoi during the two-day meeting, he said. Vietnam had less than 20 days to prepare for the high-profile event after President Trump officially announced on February 8 that Hanoi would host his second meeting with Chairman Kim, Trung said. In comparison, Singapore had nearly two months for preparations when it hosted the leaders’ first summit last year, he added.
