U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had failed to reach agreement due to North Korean demands to lift punishing U.S.-led sanctions, ONA reports citing Reuters.

Earlier, both Trump and Kim had expressed hope for progress on improving relations and on the key issue of denuclearization, in their talks in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, their second summit in eight months.

“Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, but we couldn’t do that ... we had to walk away from it,” Trump told reporters after summit talks were cut short.
