The U.S White House on Thursday, in a statement on the two-day talks between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un that culminated on Thursday, said Trump and Kim failed to reached an agreement on denuclearization.

“President Donald J. Trump of the United States and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea had very good and constructive meetings in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27-28, 2019. The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts. No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future,” White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.

According to an earlier announcement, Trump was expected to hold a “joint agreement signing ceremony” with Kim at the conclusion of their summit talks, which remained canceled following the recent statement.
