Vietnam foreign minister to visit North Korea from February 12 to 14

Vietnam’s foreign minister, Pham Binh Minh, will visit North Korea ahead of this month’s planned summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi, a spokeswoman said on Monday.

Trump said last week he would hold his second meeting with Kim in the Vietnamese capital on Feb. 27 and 28.

The Vietnamese foreign minister plans to visit North Korea from Feb. 12 to 14, the spokeswoman said in a statement posted to social network Twitter, without giving further details.

As Vietnam prepares for the summit, its reform model is being widely touted as the economic path for North Korea to follow.
