In the administration called the expected North Korean threat to cancel the summit
The US administration still hopes that the planned meeting of the President of trump with the North Korean leader will take place, has informed on Wednesday the press-Secretary of the White house Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
She added that the administration was ready to North Korean threats of cancellation of the meeting.
According to Sanders, President trump “is ready for very difficult negotiations.” “If they (the North Koreans) want to meet, we will be ready, but if not – it’s nothing”, she added, noting that if the meeting did not take place, the US “will continue to campaign maximum pressure”.
North Korea reacted sharply to the comments of national security adviser of the United States John Bolton that Pyongyang should follow the “Libyan model” of nuclear disarmament. When asked about these comments, Sanders said he did not consider them “part of any discussion”. According to her, the White house should “model President trump”.
China urged North Korea not to cancel a historic meeting between Donald trump and Kim Jong-UN after Pyongyang threatened to do so because of joint exercises US and South Korea.
The official representative of the Chinese foreign Ministry on Wednesday said that the two countries should make efforts that the meeting took place and brought “tangible results”.
Meeting trump and Kim Jong UN should pass on June 12 in Singapore, but on Wednesday, North Korea threatened to cancel the talks, stating that it was not interested in “one-way” meeting, intended to force her to abandon nuclear weapons.
According to a senior representative of the Japanese leadership in Tokyo considered the us-South Korean exercises, as well as joint exercises of the three countries one of the key elements of deterrence in the region.
