Hanoi (People’s Daily) -  Vietnamese officials said the country is ready to provide the best conditions for the upcoming summit between the leaders from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the US.

"Just after a short period, preparations in all aspects have been completed, and Hanoi now stands ready for the summit," said Le Hoai Trung, Deputy Minister of Vietnam’s Foreign Affairs, at a press conference Monday.

Recognized by the United Nations as the “City for Peace,” the host city of Hanoi is quietly waiting for the high-profile meeting. National flags from the DPRK and US line the streets and hang from tour buses.

Visitors, tourists, and locals can be seen taking photos in front of the summit’s official media center as giant banners hang in the background announcing the second summit with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump.

According to the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), almost 3,000 international reporters from over 200 news outlets in nearly 40 countries and territories will cover the event, including 550 domestic media personnel.
