After the meeting with the Vietnamese president, Trump met Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said his country wanted to make sure US and North Korean leaders will have a productive summit. “For the peace of the world, for a connected and developed world, let’s shake hands. We shall develop together and contribute to global stability,” he told CNN.
Trump and Vietnamese leaders have lavished praise upon each other, while key businesses from both countries have also signed memorandums of understanding worth in theory billions of dollars.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs boasted of the country’s “comprehensive partnership” with the US.
Trump and Phuc shared a working lunch in the Presidential Palace in Hanoi.
According to CNN, the US president was served with several Hanoi-typical dishes like nem (deep fried Hanoi-style spring rolls with shrimp, pork, vermicelli and vegetables served with a side of sweet and sour fish sauce and red chillies), cha ca (grilled cod fish), and xoi (steamed sticky glutinous rice with shrimp wrapped in a lotus leaf), and a traditional Vietnamese dessert consisting of lotus seeds, longans, and white wood-ear mushrooms served warm and in a light sugary syrup.
