North Korea’s rotund ruler arrived in Vietnam this morning after the more than 2,000 mile journey from Pyongyang.
Kim – who is known to love a smoke and a drink – was caught taking a quick fag break in China before crossing into Vietnam
Strolling up and down the platform while his doting sister Kim Yo-jong held an ashtray, the 35-year-old looked relaxed he prepares for his second showdown with Trump.
The US President will be jetting in later today on Air Force One for two days of talks with Kim in Hanoi.
It will be only the second ever time the US leader has met with North Korea’s supreme ruler – with Trump and Kim already making history last June.
“Looking forward to a very productive summit”
Kim is seen hanging out with his pals next to his huge armoured train at Nanning Station.
He appears to be chatting to his sister and his foreign minister Ri Yong-ho.
The tubby tyrant uses a match to light his cigarette as his sister holds a crystal ashtray.
It is a rare unguarded look at the North Korea leader as he paced up and down the platform – while nearby stands his wife Ri Sol-ju.
Kim then boarded the train after his fag break and climbed back on the armoured train to Dong Dang, Vietnam.
From there he swapped over to a limo, in which he drove to the capital and the ritzy hotel Melia Hanoi.
North Korea’s leader is so paranoid about being assassinated he prefers to travel in his custom green train.
He did arrive at the last summit in Singapore by plane – but made sure to bring his own toilet so the US couldn’t steal his poos.
Kim’s limo was flanked by his bodyguards as he drove through Vietnam to his hotel.
Trump is expected to arrive later today, and will meet with Kim.
The pair will then have dinner ahead of more formal talks between officials from the US and North Korea.
North Korea and the US have been enjoying a love-in – but questions remain over Kim’s nukes.
Trump insists Kim is happy to give up his nuclear weapons, but no such pledge has been agreed by North Korea.
The duo signed a pledge to “work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula” at the last summit in June.
The US President tweeted: “Heading over to Vietnam for my meeting with Kim Jong-un. Looking forward to a very productive summit.”
And speaking to the press, Trump said he was in “no rush” to push Kim to give up his nukes and said “as long as there is no testing, we’re happy”.
