US urged to show more consistency, commitment

US President Donald Trump
The US should show more sincerity and consistency in its foreign policy and avoid fooling around with international society, Chinese experts warned Friday after US President Donald Trump said his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could still go ahead, one day after he canceled the highly anticipated event.

Trump said Friday it was possible a planned summit with Kim could still take place on June 12 as originally planned, Reuters reported. The announcement comes one day after he wrote to Kim that it would be "inappropriate" to hold the planned summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" shown in North Korea's recent statements.

After voicing surprise and regret, North Korea said that it is ready to sit down with the US any time in any manner for talks to solve their existing problems.

"It's still too early to say whether the Trump-Kim meeting will happen on June 12. But canceling the summit will bring the US no good," Lü Chao, a research fellow at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Friday.

Trump's reversals show his administration is hugely divided over the talks, but Washington should show more consistency and sincerity when making decisions to avoid leaving the impression it is "fooling around with Pyongyang,"Lü said.

China on Friday urged the US and North Korea to remain patient and offer more goodwill to promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. We hope the US and North Korea cherish the positive progress made recently, stay patient, release goodwill and meet each other half way and solve their concerns via dialogues, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a daily briefing on Friday.

When asked whether China's influence on North Korea was behind the cancellation, Lu said China has always played a "positive and constructive" role on the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula and it has no hidden agenda.

China's stance on insisting on the denuclearization of the peninsula, safeguarding the peace and stability of the peninsula and insisting resolving issues via dialogues and consultations has never changed, said Lu........
