A delegation from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) arrived in Hanoi on Saturday, ahead of the planned second summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, reported Yonhap.
The delegation is presided by Kim Chang Son, a senior official at the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK. 
According to Yonhap, Kim is known as the DPRK leader's de facto chief of staff in charge of protocol. He also managed protocol and other related affairs, such as accommodations, for the first historic Trump-Kim summit held last June in Singapore.
The officials are expected to discuss protocol preparations for the summit with their American counterparts. 
After their first summit last year, the much-anticipated second Kim-Trump summit will be held on February 27-28 in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi.
