SEOUL, Feb. 28 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump is set to call his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, later Thursday to explain the outcome of his second meeting with North Korea's leader in Hanoi, an official from Moon's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.
The call will likely be made around 8 p.m. (Seoul time) when the U.S. president will depart from the Vietnamese capital following his two-day summit with the North's Kim Jong-un.
"We have asked the U.S. president to make the call before his departure," Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told a press briefing.
"It is difficult to know whether the call will be made before or after his departure," he added.
The U.S. president earlier promised to explain the outcome of his Hanoi meeting to Moon as soon as possible.
After the first-ever U.S.-North Korea summit, held in Singapore in June, Trump called the South Korean president while heading home aboard Air Force One.
