What's happening: President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un left Hanoi without reaching a deal on sanctions against North Korea or denuclearization efforts in the country. Kim will make an official announcement soon on whether diplomatic talks will continue, per the Post.
The other side: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to North Korea's threat of suspending diplomatic talks at a press conference on Friday, maintaining that "Chairman Kim made a commitment to denuclearize" and saying the Trump administration still hopes to continue the conversation.
- North Korea's Sohae rocket launch site went back to "normal operational status" just one week after the Hanoi summit.
