U.S. President Donald Trump has canceled high talk with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, accusing the North Korean leader of "tremendous anger and open hostility." The U.S. President canceled talks on Thursday, accompanying the cancellation with a letter.
The peace talk between the duo was set up for June 12 at Singapore, and there have been preparation for these talks between the two parties involved.
In a letter released online and released on the internet, the U.S. President praised the NK leader for releasing the recent three Americans in his custody, but wrote the meeting will not hold, he wrote "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."
Trump also reminds Kim about the U.S. nuclear abilities, and wrote; "You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used"
The South Korean government had performed a major role to set up the meeting between the U.S. and North Korea, and were caught by surprise at the news from the Trump's government.
The news was received in just before midnight in Seoul, and an emergency meeting was called by the Moon Jae-In administration, and released a statement after, writing;
It is very regretful and disconcerting that the US-NK summit will not happen as planned. Denuclearization and the lasting peace on the Korean peninsula cannot be abandoned or delayed as they are the historical assignment. The sincerity of the affected parties who have been working to resolve the problem has not changed. It is hard to resolve sensitive and difficult diplomatic issues with the current way of communications. (We) hope that the leaders resolve problems through direct and close dialogue.
The latest development was a surprise as North Korea was seen dismantling some of its nuclear test site. North Korea had cancelled a major talk with South Korea out of anger, after a joint military drill in the Korean peninsula.
Recently, North Korea had lashed out at the U.S. Vice-president, Mike Pence after he said that the North Korea government might end up like Gaddafi Libya government.
A top North Korean official, Choe Son Hui, responding to Pence's remarks said; "As a person involved in U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing from the mouth of the U.S. vice president"
