Official news agency and newspapers omit failure to reach a deal and dispute over sanctions relief
North Korean media have reported Kim Jong-un’s denuclearisation talks with Donald Trump, but with one key omission – their failure to reach a deal due to differences over sanctions.
The official KCNA news agency offered a largely positive account of Thursday’s doomed meeting in Hanoi, saying the two countries had deepened their “mutual respect and trust” and describing the summit as an event of “great significance”.
