2nd US-North Korea Summit ends without a deal

US President Donald Trump with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un met in Vietnam yesterday to finalise a deal between the two long standing enemies, which would have ended sanction and restrict the North Korea nuclear program as well as proliferation of Nuclear weapons.

Unfortunately the summit ended with no agreement as the US has requested that North Korea dismantle its entire nuclear complex and discloses all its weapon depots. While North Korea only offered to dismantle its main nuclear weapons complex for partial sanction relief.

Talks broke down as both leaders could not come to an agreement on the issue President Trump is also facing immense media pressure at the moment and is very wary of getting an insufficient deal.  North Korea have accused the US of wasting an opportunity at getting a peace deal in place.
