North Korean leader leaves Vietnam after summit

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korean leader Kim Jong Un left Vietnam on Saturday (March 2) after a failed summit with U.S. President Donald Trump and a state visit.

A large crowd and Vietnamese officials saw off Kim Jong Un at the border station of Dong Dang.

He visited a war heroes monument and the mausoleum of former president Ho Chi Minh before travelling to the station where he boarded his train for the journey back to Pyongyang which will take him and his entourage through China.

Kim came to Hanoi for a second meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Vietnam, which was cut short after they failed to reach a deal on the extent of sanctions relief North Korea would get in exchange for steps to give up its nuclear programme.

The collapse of the summit leaves Kim in possession of what analysts say could be an arsenal of 20 to 60 nuclear warheads, which, if fitted to its intercontinental ballistic missiles, could threaten the U.S. mainland.
