North Korea's state media seem to be glossing over the fact that Kim Jong Un's summit with President Donald Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, ended early without a deal.

Trump told media on Thursday the summit ended early because Kim wanted total sanctions relief in exchange for only a few nuclear site closures.

But North Korean state media hasn't mentioned the lack of a deal or any botches to the schedule, focusing instead on the "extraordinary" and "successful" summit instead.

According to a Friday report in the state-run Korean Central News Agency, Trump and Kim had a "constructive and candid exchange of opinions over the practical issues arising in opening up a new era of DPRK-US fence-mending on the basis of the progress."
