North Korea willing to meet US despite cancelled Trump summit

May 25 , 2018

North Korea has insisted it remains interested in a summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un despite the US president’s cancellation of the June 12 meeting, saying it was open to “resolving problems” between the two countries “at any time”.

Hours after the US president pulled out of a scheduled Singapore summit with Mr Kim, a senior North Korean official said the country was still willing to meet Mr Trump and was open to resolving tensions with Washington following Pyongyang’s development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

“We had set in high regards President Trump's efforts, unprecedented by any other president, to create a historic North Korea-US summit,” said Kim Kye Gwan, North Korea’s vice-minister for foreign affairs, in a statement released by the state-run Korea Central News Agency.

“We tell the United States once more that we are open to resolving problems at any time in any way,” he said.
