Trump says summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un may be delayed:
US President Donald Trump has stated that there’s a “very substantial chance” a historic summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un next month may not occur.
He said the North must meet requirements for the summit to proceed though if it didn’t, it might occur “later”.
Mr. Trump was speaking as he received South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in at the White House.
The North has said it may cancel the summit if the US insists on it giving up nuclear weapons unilaterally.
Mr. Trump didn’t state what conditions the US had set for the summit, however, asked by a reporter regarding the North’s arsenal, he said: “denuclearisation must take place”.
The 12 June summit is due to occur in Singapore. It follows a historic meeting between the two Korean leaders in April.
