Hair apparent: Hanoi barber offers free Trump, Kim cuts ahead of summit

Barber Tuan Duong gives a Kim Jong Un style haircut to a customer on Feb. 20 2019 in Hanoi Vietnam

Just several days ahead of the historic summit between the U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un scheduled to take place in Hanoi on February 27-28, Hanoians are being treated to some light-hearted entertainment in the form of impersonators of both leaders.

Trump said he did not think North Korea was reluctant to denuclearize, in spite of a lack of concrete progress since he and Kim met for a first summit in Singapore in June. "Through negotiations, with dialogue, we want to help North Korea of course", he said, wearing heavy bronzer and with freshly gelled hair.

Expert studies citing satellite imaging taken of North Korea's nuclear and military sites suggest that Pyongyang has not yet taken any "meaningful" steps towards dismantling its nuclear program.

"Many people say that I look like Kim Jong Un, especially when I have this hairstyle", said Huy, who is nicknamed "Un" for his likeness to the North Korean leader.

"Eventually, we are going to need a full declaration in order to complete the process of denuclearization, though I expect that will come well before the end", he said". North Korea's top negotiators have arrived in Vietnam and are meeting with the US special envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, to lay the groundwork for the conversation between Trump and Kim.

When the United States announced their decision, the Russian side understood the consequences of that decision, Putin noted. Let them count the speed and the range of the weapons systems we are developing.

Conservative news outlets in Seoul voiced worries that the U.S. will ease some sanctions on North Korea without a "final, fully verified denuclearization". "And then in turn, we can work on peace and security on the peninsula and a brighter future for the North Korean people". But the North apparently wants mutual disarmament, in which the USA would pull down its nuclear umbrella for South Korea, including halts to the deployment of nuclear-powered strategic assets to the peninsula. We have to reduce the threat of a nuclear-armed North Korea.

When Trump and Kim met in Singapore, it was the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

On a chair next to him, nine-year-old To Gia Huy emerges as a spitting image of a miniature Kim Jong Un.

The barber is not the only artist in Hanoi paying tribute to the leaders.
