(February 13, 2019) Why Hanoi won Trump-Kim summit - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 Bangkok, Hanoi and Hawaii were three of the possible venues mentioned when the US and North Korea agreed to have a second summit. However, when the final decision was made just days ahead of the announcement by President Donald Trump during the State of the Union address, Hanoi stood alone as the site for the second summit between him and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Feb 27-28.

In the beginning, Thailand had a good chance. As the current Asean chair, it would have been the best place to host the summit -- as was the case earlier with the previous Asean chair, Singapore.

 

However, after on-site inspections of both physical and social-political conditions in both capitals, Hanoi emerged as the favourite. Hawaii was dismissed due to the distance and the time not being right for such a visit, as US-North Korea ties have not been fully normalised.
