Korean Central Television (KCTV) aired a documentary on Wednesday covering the Trump-Kim summit held from February 27 to 28 in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi.

The documentary lasted 75 minutes and will also be broadcasted on Thursday, according to media reports.

The documentary, however, said that Kim Jong Un,  the top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), reiterated his will for them to continue to meet more often to improve bilateral relations, Yonhap reported.

On Wednesday, the top nuclear envoys of the Republic of Korea (ROK), the United States and Japan met in Washington, D.C., to discuss the next steps after the second summit. And on Tuesday, two U.S. think tanks said that work was underway to restore part of the DPRK's Sohae satellite launch station even as Trump met with Kim in Hanoi last week.

Meanwhile, ROK and U.S. troops plan to conduct a renamed command-post exercise (CPX) in August or September as part of the reorganization of their regular combined drills, a defense official here said Thursday.

The Ministry of National Defense said earlier the FG will be staged as a "newly adjusted" CPX between the allies in the latter half of this year.

The DPRK has long called for the abolishment of the drills, criticizing it as a source of regional tensions.

U.S. President Donald Trump has voiced his displeasure about the joint military maneuvers, citing massive costs.
