WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be held in Vietnam Feb. 27-28.

The date and venue had been shrouded in secrecy as the two countries negotiated the next steps after their historic first summit in Singapore in June.

"Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one," Trump said during his State of the Union address.

"Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam," he said, stopping short of revealing the city.

The announcement came shortly after Washington's nuclear envoy, Stephen Biegun, arrived in Pyongyang to prepare for the next summit.
