North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President have agreed to continue "productive" discussions on denuclearisation, Pyongyang's state media said Friday, hours after a summit between the two leaders in Hanoi ended abruptly, with no agreement.

Kim and Trump "agreed to continue having productive talks to discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the improvement of US-relations", the KCNA news agency reported, making no mention of the breakdown of the two-day summit in Vietnam.
