N.Korea casts doubt on Trump summit

NKorea suspends talks with South, threatens to cancel US summit

"We have not heard anything from that government or the government of South Korea to indicate that we would not continue conducting these exercises or that we would not continue planning for our meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un next month".

It also included a threat to scrap the June 12 summit between Kim Jong Un and Trump in Singapore.

"We hope. some of the high-level meetings that (the two sides) have been working towards can be held smoothly and. results can be achieved", Lu said. "The president's fully prepared and fully ready to carry on in these conversations both leading up to and if the meeting takes place", she said.

"If the U.S. is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue", first vice foreign minister Kim Kye-gwan said in a statement carried by state media.

Mr Trump has raised expectations for success even as many analysts have been sceptical about the chances of bridging the gap because of questions about North Korea's willingness to give up a nuclear arsenal that it says can hit the US.

In a press availability during a historic meeting with Uzbekistan president Shavkat Mirziyoyev at the White House, reporters asked whether Donald Trump had any response to North Korea's threats to walk away from the summit if denuclearization was the demand.

The Asahi also reported that if Pyongyang agrees to complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization at the planned Singapore summit, Washington was considering giving guarantees for Kim's regime. "We have no choice but to suspend the North-South high-level talks planned for the 16th amid this menacing situation where an indiscriminate ruckus to invade the North and a confrontational mayhem are occurring in the South". But so far the North has not given any public indication of what concessions it is offering, beyond euphemistic commitments to denuclearisation of the "Korean peninsula". "The bottom line is that Kim isn't going to give up nukes, and the reason is pessimism; it's that North Korea has no theory of its own security without nukes".

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pyongyang also raised hopes ahead of the USA summit by announcing it will destroy its nuclear testing site next week.

Ri, head of the North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country, described the South's reaction to the meeting's cancellation as a "confrontation racket", according to KCNA.

The North has said it won't return to talks with Seoul due to the exercises.

The State Department refuted the allegations that these exercises are provocative in nature.
