The Korean Peninsula makes for riveting theatre. Thus, the drama and suspense around the second US-North Korea summit in Hanoi on 27-28 February 2019, that ended abruptly, was true to form. The landmark event had generated sizeable expectations of forward movement.

A draft outcome document reportedly had been readied with some key elements left for the decision of the Principals.
