North Korea 15:35 February 28, 2019

(ATTN: UPDATES with Kim's departure)

HANOI, Feb. 28 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un left a Hanoi hotel Thursday after talks with U.S. President Donald Trump amid reports that they seem to have cancelled a working lunch.

Speculation is rampant that they might have called off a joint agreement signing ceremony, initially slated for 2:05 p.m. (local time).

Trump has already rescheduled his post-summit press conference to 2 p.m. from 4 p.m., White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders told reporters.

The sudden change of schedule has raised the view that their two-day summit here might have fallen apart.
