Vietnam is a significant location for both North Korea and the United States.

North Korea provided both “material and personnel” to Vietnam during the Vietnam War against the United States, The New York Times reported, and there are gravestones in Vietnam (though their remains were repatriated) for North Korean pilots killed during the war.

For the US, Vietnam was the site of a long and ultimately failed war that ended with North Vietnam defeating the US backed south in 1975. Since 1995, the two countries have worked to normalize relations (and become healthy trade partners), which The Times noted could be a model for North Korea.

South Korea also normalized relations with Vietnam in 1992.
