US President Donald Trump has suggested that the summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un could still happen, despite yesterday’s cancellation.
This comes after the supreme leader of the DPRK responded to President Trump’s cancellation, saying the decision was ‘not consistent with the desire of humankind for peace and stability in the world, to say nothing of those in the Korean Peninsula.’
‘We would like to make known to the US side once again that we have the intent to sit with the US side to solve problem(s) regardless of ways at any time,’ Kim added.
The summit, which was set to take place in Singapore on 12 June, was called off due to the ‘tremendous anger and open hostility’ displayed in a recent North Korea statement.
However, President Trump has since commented that ‘we’re talking to them [North Korea] now. It was a very nice statement they put out.’
He has even suggested the summit could still take place on 12 June.
