HANOI, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday started talks of their second summit for a second day in Vietnam's capital Hanoi to hammer out a deal for peace on and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Kim and Trump sat down again at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi, where the two leaders had a brief one-on-one chat and a dinner for about two hours Wednesday night.

During the second day of their meeting, which came about eight months after their first summit in Singapore in June last year, Kim and Trump planned to sit down again one-on-one at the negotiating table before an "extended" meeting accompanied by their aides.

The two leaders were forecast to discuss concrete ways to achieve the "comprehensive" agreements reached in the Singapore summit, including the peace and complete denuclearization of the peninsula and the establishment of new relations between Pyongyang and Washington.
