Trump Calls Off June 12 Meeting With Kim Jong-un, Hopes to Meet Him 'Some Day'

Until now the fate of the long-awaited summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un had been unknown. While Washington had demanded that the DPRK start the process of denuclearization, Pyongyang stressed that it would negotiate with Trump only if he was seeking to improve bilateral relations.

"I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting," Trump said, referring to a meeting with Kim Jong-un slated for June 12. "Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place," read Trump's letter to Kim Jong-un, released by the White House.

The US president has blamed the cancellation on North Korea's "tremendous anger and open hostility" expressed in Kim's latest statement.
