Trump calls off June 12 meeting with Kim Jong-un, hopes to meet him 'some day'
US President Donald Trump has called off June 12 meeting with leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un, saying that he hopes to meet him "some day", Sputnik reported.
"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.
In the letter, Trump also told Kim "do not hesitate to call me or write" if Pyongyang changes its mind regarding the planned summit.
