North Korea Summit May Happen ‘Later’ – Trump

Donald Trump, United States President, has said the historic summit with North Korea might be postponed.

Speaking at the White House on Tuesday while receiving South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump said the North Koreans must fulfill certain conditions for the June 12 summit to happen.

He stated that there is a “very substantial chance” that the summit slated for Singapore might be held on a “later” date.

He said, “We’ll see what happens.

“There are certain conditions that we want and I think we’ll get those conditions and if we don’t we don’t have the meeting.”

Trump who spoke about the uncertainty of reaching deals, however, did not state the conditions that the North Korea must fulfil.

He, however, stated that North Korea should know that “denuclearisation must take place.”

Newsbreak.ng recalls that the US Vice-President, Mike Pence, had earlier on Tuesday stated that President Trump could “walk away” from the Korean summit.

The North has said it may cancel the summit if the US insists on it giving up nuclear weapons unilaterally.
