The summit between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump ended abruptlythis morning and the main talking point to come from it is not what the men spoke about.

In fact, the presence of a mysterious woman in several images from the summit has got the whole world wondering who she actually is.

Peering sheepishly behind walls, you might think that the woman has snuck into the grounds of the summit trying to catch  glimpse of the two leaders.

But the truth is the woman is actually Kim Jong-un’s sister – and she is the most powerful woman in North Korea.

Kim Yo-jong seems to follow her brother wherever he goes, and that included the short-lived second meeting between the North Korean leader and the President of the United States.

And she popped up all over the place in Vietnam – much to the amusement of people watching.

She’s come a long way in two years.

Not much is known about Kim Yo-jong but she is believed to be the director of North Korea’s propaganda department.

But her other vital role appears to be holding the ashtray for her brother when he has a cigarette.

After the summit came to a premature end, Trump said “sometimes you have to walk” and blamed a stalemate on the thorny subject of sanctions.

Trump said: “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn’t do that.

“They were willing to de-nuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn’t give up all of the sanctions for that.

“So we continue to work and we’ll see, but we had to walk away from that particular suggestion. We had to walk away from that.”
