12:00 After a telephone conversation with Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he backs the US President’s decision to end his summit with Kim without an agreement and suggested it was his turn to meet with the North Korean leader.

“I fully support President Trump’s decision not to make the easy choice,” Abe said. “I am determined that I must meet Chairman Kim next.”

8:30 South Korea’s presidential office described the breakdown of nuclear talks “unfortunate,” but it expects “active dialogue” to continue between Washington and Pyongyang.

“The (South Korean) government will do all it can to ensure that the United States and North Korea can maintain momentum for dialogue while continuing their close communication and cooperation,” the office said.

7:25 When asked if sanctions were the reason the agreement fell through, Trump said: “It was about the sanctions, basically they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn’t do that. They [North Korea] were willing to denuclearize a large portion of the areas that we wanted … but we had to walk away from that.”

“I’m never afraid to walk away from a deal,” Trump added.

7:19 Speaking at a press conference Trump said his meeting with Kim ended on a friendly note but no agreement was reached. “We made even more progress than in June 21018. Unfortunately we didn’t get all the way, we didn’t get something that would make sense for the USA,” Trump said.

6:39 The White House has said “no agreement was reached” between Kim and Trump and meetings will continue in the future. “The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. “No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future.”

Does Trump’s North Korea strategy work?

6:30 Several news outlets have reported that Trump and Kim ended the talks early and that both had left the venue without holding a scheduled working lunch and signing ceremony. It is unclear whether it was because of a deadlock in their nuclear negotiations.

6:18 The White House has announced a schedule change and said Trump will hold a solo press conference.

4:35 When asked if he was ready to denuclearize and Kim responded through an interpreter and said: “If I was not ready, I wouldn’t be here.” Kim’s remark prompted Trump to add, ”That might be the best answer you’ve ever heard.”

4:08 Kim answered a question from a foreign journalist almost certainly for the first time ahead of his high-stakes nuclear summit with Trump. When asked by a member of the White House press pool about his outlook on the summit on Thursday, Kim said: “It’s too early to say. I won’t make predictions. But I instinctively feel that a good outcome will be produced.”

2:08 Using an interpreter, Kim told Trump he could assure him he would his best “to bring good results.” Trump praised his relationship with Kim and said repeatedly he was in “no rush … speed is not important to me … What is important is that we get the right deal. I very much appreciate the no testing.”

1:59 After having dinner together on Wednesday evening, Trump and Kim have entered into their second day of talks in Vietnam, starting with a one-on-one meeting at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. For entrée the two leaders had shrimp cocktail, followed by a main course of grilled sirloin and pear kimchi. Chocolate lava cake was for dessert and their thirst was quenched with a dried persimmon punch.
