President Donald Trump has said the US has not been notified about North Korea’s threat to cancel his historic summit with Kim Jong-un next month.
North Korea has earlier threatened to abandon planned talks between Kim and Trump in June, if Washington insists on pushing it into a corner on nuclear disarmament.
Asked if he will still insist on the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, Trump said, yes and US will see what happens in the coming days.
In the meeting on June 12 in Singapore, the two countries were expected to discuss ways to implement their leaders’ recent agreements to reduce military tensions along their heavily fortified border and improve their overall ties.
Reacting to the reports from Pyongyang, the White House earlier said it was still hopeful the summit will proceed despite North Korea’s threat to cancel it.
