North Korea leader Kim, U.S. President Trump meet for second summit

After a long 8 months, Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are reunited.

The two leaders kicked off their second summit Wednesday evening in Hanoi.

It marks the first time the two are meeting since their Singapore summit - after which Trump had said they'd fallen in love.

But on Wednesday - when asked by Reuters whether he's walking back on denuclearization - Trump had a simple answer: (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "No" He quickly shifted focus - telling reporters he thought the talks would be very successful, and that North Korea has big economic potential.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: And I've said many times I say it to the press I say it to anybody who wants to listen, I think your country has tremendous economic potential, unbelievable, unlimited.

And I think that you will have a tremendous future with your country, a great leader.

I look forward to watching it happen and helping to happen.

In return, Kim said it took a lot of patience and effort to get to this meeting - and promised to work towards good results.

But 'good results' for the two leaders may mean very different things.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) REUTERS CORRESPONDENT GRACE LEE SAYING: ''The big question as the two-day summit kicks off is whether or not Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump will walk away with concrete - tangible results.

Here in Hanoi many are wondering whether the U.S. President will be able to get Kim to commit to clear steps towards denuclearization - something he wasn't able to do in Singapore.

That might include shutting down North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear reactor - which North Korea has promised - and failed to do - several times in the past.

Meanwhile Kim Jong Un would be looking to try and get the U.S. to ease off on sanctions - which have been quietly doing a lot of damage to the North.'' The two sat down for dinner later in the evening - along with some top officials from each country.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was there, as well as his North Korean counterpart - Kim Yong Chol.

It's not clear what may have been discussed, but when asked earlier in the night whether he might officially end the Korean war - Trump simply said "we'll see." North and South Korea are still technically at war - after their conflict in the 50s ended in a truce - signed by the U.S. - instead of a treaty.

Trump and Kim's meeting will stretch on into Thursday.

The two are scheduled to hold a series of talks throughout the day.
