Trump says summit with Kim will not go ahead

Trump says summit with Kim will not go ahead
US President Donald Trump has said the summit planned with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un next month will not now go ahead.

In a letter released by the White House, Mr Trump wrote: "I was very much looking forward to being there with you.

"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".

The meeting was due to take place in Singapore on 12 June.

Mr Trump's letter came after North Korea attacked US Vice President Mike Pence as "ignorant and stupid" for his warnings over the planned summit, renewing a threat to cancel the historic talks.


  1. The president did leave the door open for further talks on a rescheduled summit, when North Korea is willing to deal with Washington on better terms.

    "If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write," he wrote. "North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth."

    Trump's surprise announcement comes after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday he was "very hopeful" the summit would go ahead on June 12.

  2. Le président américain Donald Trump a annulé jeudi le sommet historique prévu le 12 juin à Singapour avec le leader nord-coréen Kim Jong Un, dénonçant "la colère" et "l'hostilité" du régime de Pyongyang.
