HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội had been pulling out all the stops to prepare for the second Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) – United States (US) Summit which will take place from February 27 to 28.

The city is said to be proud and honoured to be hosting the event. It is also said a good opportunity for Việt Nam and Hà Nội  to promote its beauty, culture and people as well as the image of a “City for Peace” among international friends.

In 1999, Hà Nội was among five cities on five continents presented with the “City for Peace” award by UNESCO to recognise its contributions to the struggle for peace as well as its development that met the organisation’s standards of equality in the community, urban construction, living environment, culture and education promotion, and care for younger generations. — VNS
