Governments across Asia on Wednesday expressed hope that a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam will produce concrete results that would lead to complete denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.
"(Kim) would be interested in seeing the Vietnam story for himself, that can be a good source of inspiration and reflection for him to think about the way he should take North Korea forward", Le Hong Hiep, a Vietnam expert at Singapore's ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute, toldAFP.
"If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea with potentially millions of people killed". "Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27and 28 in Vietnam".

Michael Morell, former deputy director and acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday he's most anxious that President Trump will "cut a deal" with Kim Jong Un on the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that threaten the USA - putting the rest of the region at risk.
Kim has also criticised the USA for maintaining and implementing sanctions on Pyongyang, warning in his New Year's address that they could "block the path to denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula forever".
Nhung agreed: "I think North Korea now is like Vietnam before the USA embargo was lifted, poor and economically limited".
Commenters on one site said Kim could even take inspiration from the country's north and south reunifying after the war. Possible locations are the capital, Hanoi, and the seaside city of Danang.
US envoy Stephen Biegun is due to meet his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok Chol on Pyongyang on Wednesday, as he attempts to push forward preparations for the summit and advance a plan to reinvigorate talks about denuclearization.

During a surprise visit to Iraq late past year, Trump made clear that he has "no plans at all" to remove United States troops from the Middle Eastern country, stressing his interest in wanting more soldiers deployed there from Syria. Nuclear testing has stopped.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress last week that US intelligence officials do not believe Kim will eliminate his nuclear weapons or the capacity to build more because he believes they are key to the survival of the regime.
"It is contingent on progress of talks between North Korea and the United States but the possibility is low", he said.
