US President Donald Trump announced plans for a second nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un in Vietnam on Wednesday, February 27, and Thursday, February 28. No venue or hosting city has yet been announced as of Wednesday, February 6, though it will likely be held in Hanoi, Danang, or Ho Chi Minh City. Large diplomatic delegations, security teams, and a press corps will accompany the leaders. Heightened security measures, including checkpoints and increased security personnel, are expected during the summit and in the days before. Associated disruptions, including road closures and increased congestion, are similarly likely.
Trump and Kim met in Singapore in June 2018 to discuss bilateral relations and the North Korean nuclear program. It was the first ever meeting between the leaders of the two countries.
Individuals in Vietnam are advised to stay abreast of the situation, anticipate heightened security measures, associated disruptions, and an increased demand for hotels.
