North Korean leader Kim Jong-un left Hanoi on Saturday for Pyongyang by train, after concluding a historic state visit to Vietnam, following his failed summit with US President Donald Trump earlier in the week.

Before leaving for his country, he visited the mausoleum of Vietnamese national hero Ho Chi Minh, with whom his grandfather Kim Il-Sung met in Hanoi in 1964. That marked the last official visit by a North Korean leader to Vietnam, reports Efe news.

After the short stop, he travelled by car to the Dong Dang station on the border with China and boarded a high-security train to return to his country. A crowd waving Vietnamese and North Korean flags had gathered at the gates of the railway station to bid farewell to the leader of North Korea.

Kim Jong-un waved to the gathered crowd and boarded the train, flanked by his security personnel. On Friday, Hanoi hosted a grand dinner for Kim Jong-un. Earlier in the day, he met Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong. During the meeting, both leaders pledged to reinforce ties between the two countries that share historical and ideological affinities owing to the communist root of their regimes.
