Korea talks canned throwing doubt on Trump summit

16 8 15

NORTH KOREA cancelled high-level talks with the South on Wednesday, citing military exercises as the reason for the last minute cancellation. The change throws doubt on the highly anticipated summit between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, scheduled for June 12.

A report on North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) angrily attacked the “Max Thunder” air combat drills, which it said involved U.S. stealth fighters and B-52 bombers, and appeared to mark a break in months of warming ties between North and South Korea and between Pyongyang and Washington.

The KCNA report called the air drills a “provocation” that went against the trend of warming ties.
