North Korea faces 'historic turning point', says state media ahead of summit

North Korea is facing a "significant, historic turning point", state media said on Monday (Feb 18), ahead of a highly-anticipated second summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

The meeting between the two leaders - which will be the second time the pair have come together following their Singapore summit in June - is scheduled for Hanoi, Vietnam on Feb 27-28.

Attention has been focused on whether the US team will offer to lift some economic sanctions on North Korea, in return for Pyongyang taking concrete steps toward denuclearisation.

"It is time for us to tighten our shoe strings and run fast, looking for a higher goal as we face this decisive moment," the Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in an editorial.
