North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp
ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi
tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.
”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin
g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”
