US President Donald Trump said even as he had a “really productive time” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the US could not agree to North’s demands of lifting the sanctions entirety, reports from Hanoi have said.

Even though Trump said that the breakdown of the summit was “about sanctions,” he said he had a “productive time” during discussions with Kim, according to agencies.

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon at Hanoi in Vietnam, Trump said: “They wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that.”

Trump, however, said he looked forward to future talks with North Korea saying, “We haven’t given up anything.” He went on to say that they (North) have “tremendous potential, unbelievable.”

Even though Trump said that the breakdown of the summit was “about sanctions,” he said he had a “productive time” during discussions with Kim, according to agencies.

Trump added it “wasn’t a thing to be signing anything” today terming Kim as “quite a guy, quite a character.”

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Kim was “unprepared” to meet the US demands, reports said.

Pompeo added that the negotiations will take time saying that they would continue to work to make progress to achieve what the world wants ‘which is to denuclearize North Korea’ and reduce risk for the American people and the people around the world. (Agencies)
