REUTERS – Security was tightened at Dong Dang Railway Station, the China-Vietnamese border in Lang Son Province of Vietnam on Monday (February 25) ahead of an anticipated arrival of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for the Hanoi summit.

Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump are set to hold their second summit in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi on February 27-28. The pair held their first historic meeting in June 2018, where Kim pledged to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

Some residents in Lang Son province said they would like to catch a glimpse of Kim if he arrives at the station.

There are no official details as to how the North Korean leader will be arriving in Vietnam. But North Korean state media confirmed Kim had left Pyongyang by train, while South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said the train had passed through the city of Changsha, putting it on schedule to arrive in Vietnam by early Tuesday (February 26).
