"Tremendous crowds, and so much love!" the USA president tweeted.

Mr Kim - who arrived in Hanoi after a dramatic 67½-hour train-and-car ride via China - has checked into the Melia Hanoi hotel. He completed the last stretch from a border station to Hanoi by auto.

"If Kim Jong Un jumped up on the table, pulled down his trousers and took a dump in front of Trump", said Lewis, "the president would tell us that he was especially impressed with a private but moving gesture made by Kim".

In their first meeting in Singapore eight months ago, the two leaders agreed to work together for "complete" denuclearization, better relations and a peace regime.

US intelligence officials have said there is no sign North Korea will ever give up its entire arsenal of nuclear weapons, which it sees as its guarantee of national security. "I hope North Korea would become exactly like Vietnam, and maybe use it an example to follow for its own economic development", Fries said.

Trump, landing in darkness, waved as he disembarked Air Force One and was met by senior Vietnamese and US officials.

A military guard of honour in pristine white uniforms presented arms as Kim strolled down the red carpet waving and grinning, surrounded by aides and security personnel. Trump tweeted after reaching his Hanoi hotel from the airport.

North Korean officials engaged in working-level talks for the summit briefed Kim after he arrived, the North's state news agency, KCNA, said on Wednesday.

Kim's bodyguards are picked for fitness, height, eyesight, marksmanship, martial arts prowess, and even their good looks, says the BBC's South Korea correspondent Laura Bicker. Kim has continued his diplomacy efforts following the Singapore summit, sending gushing letters to the US President, who said the pair "fell in love".

"Kim Jong Un must believe that if he emulates Vietnam, he can lay the foundation for economic prosperity in North Korea while maintaining its hereditary dictatorship", the diplomat from an Asian nation said.

"China is willing to take great initiative on economic development in North Korea". "Without it, just more of the same".

Saudi princess becomes first WOMAN to become United States ambassador replacing MALE prince
She is member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Women in Sports Commission and of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee. She is the daughter of Prince Bandar, who headed the Saudi diplomatic mission in Washington from 1983 to 2005.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump will meet with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Thong and sign trade agreements between the two countries at the Presidential Palace. I just don't want testing.

For Washington, this would ideally include getting Kim to dismantle the key nuclear facility at Yongbyon, allow in global inspectors, or even hand over a full list of all the country's nuclear assets - something the North Koreans have categorically refused to do.

"The most basic, yet urgent, task is to come to a shared understanding of what denuclearization would entail", said Gi-Wook Shin, director of Stanford's Asia-Pacific Research Center.

While a formal end to the Korean War has been a discussion topic in both the recent U.S.

"After the first U.S".

Some analysts fear that may lead him to pull his punches.

The White House has set low ambitions for tomorrow's talks, hurriedly organised after Mr Trump announced the summit on February 8.

Trump and Kim held a 20-minute, one-on-one chat before sitting down to dinner with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Trump's acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Kim's top envoy, Kim Yong Chol, and North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.

Instead of insisting on denuclearization first before the USA considers any concessions, Biegun says, the U.S.is simultaneously pursuing denuclearization, establishing new U.S.

North and South Korea have been technically at war since their 1950-53 conflict, with the Americans backing the South, ended in a truce, not a treaty.
