US President Donald Trump said on Saturday his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un later this month will be held in Hanoi.

Following three days of talks in Pyongyang, U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun returned to Seoul Friday having agreed to meet his DPRK counterpart again later this month, according to the U.S. State Department.

Trump added: "I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace!"

"The South Korean government will, as it has been doing, closely communicate and cooperate with both North Korea and the US, and do its best for the success of the US-North Korea summit and the establishment of a lasting and durable peace on the Korean Peninsula", the minister said.

Just weeks ahead of the planned summit the two sides have at times appeared far from bridging significant gaps over how and if the North will relinquish its nuclear weapons program. He is expected to brief South Korean officials about his visit to North Korea over the weekend.

According to the U.S. State Department, he'll be meeting with his North Korean counterpart again before the Kim-Trump summit.

Before travelling to Pyongyang on Wednesday, Mr Biegun said he wanted to achieve some "concrete deliverables".

He also said Kim Jong-un had previously committed to "the dismantlement and destruction" of all North Korea's plutonium and uranium facilities, which provide the material for nuclear weapons.

It said the country's nuclear and ballistic missile programs remained intact and NKorea was working to make sure those capabilities could not be destroyed by any military strikes.

Attention will focus on whether the USA team have offered to lift some economic sanctions in return for Pyongyang taking concrete steps towards denuclearisation.

The State Department also confirmed earlier reports in South Korean media that the talks took place from February 6-8 in Pyongyang, with Biegun returning to Seoul on Friday.

DPRK is the acronym of North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"He may surprise some but he won't surprise me, because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is", Trump said.

Palladino said the location of the summit in Vietnam will be disclosed when it's ready for announcement. He and Biegun have stressed the economic benefits to North Korea if it does so.
