U.S. President Donald Trump called off his planned summit meeting on June 12 with Kim Jong Un. While North Korea said today it is still open to talks with the US at any time and by any means.
First vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan expressed “great regret” for Trump’s decision, and said the North Koreans remain “broad-minded and open all the time” for further discussions with the US.
“I was very much looking forward to being there with you,” Trump said in the letter. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.”
Donald Trump also told Kim Jong Un that the US nuclear capabilities are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.
He said the cancellation of the Singapore summit is a tremendous setback for North Korea and the world. The White House said that North Korea IS failure to keep its word had led US President Donald Trump to call off his much anticipated summit with Kim Jong Un on June 12.
Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it regrets the cancellation of the summit, adding that it “hopes that the dialogue and efforts to find lasting peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula will continue.”
Meanwhile, North Korea on Friday said that it was still open to talks with the United States despite US President Donald Trump’s threat of military action after cancelling their summit in Singapore.
