Trump and Kim to meet in Vietnam for second summit

Graphic News

February 27-28, 2019 -- U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are to hold their second summit, raising hopes that the two sides can break their stalemate over denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

The meeting would be Trump’s second summit with Kim over the last year and the first time a U.S. president has twice met the leader of the authoritarian regime.

The two men held their first meeting in Singapore in June. Trump has been eager to hold a second summit in spite of a lack of concrete progress in persuading North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons programme.

Communist-ruled Vietnam, which has good relations with both the United States and North Korea, had been widely touted as the most likely venue for the meeting.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
