Pyongyang after U.S. refusal still willing to enter negotiations

Pyongyang has stated that North Korea was still ready to engage in talks at any time in any form after U.S. President Donald Trump unexpectedly cancelled his meeting with the head of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.

British public broadcaster BBC reported on Friday, May 25, that North Korean Vice-Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan commented Trump’s decision was «extremely regrettable», whereas U.S. President Trump blamed the North’s «open hostility» for the cancellation.

«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,» reads a letter signed by Trump to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The summit planned for Singapore on June 12 would have been the first time a sitting US president had met a North Korean leader and talks would have focused on ways of denuclearising the Korean peninsula and reducing tensions.
