US President Donald Trump on Wednesday played down insinuations North Korea plans to cancel his summit with Kim Jong Un, saying ”we haven’t been notified at all.”
Pyongyang on Tuesday suspended its high-level talks with the South billed for Wednesday due to U.S.-South Korean military drills.
It was also learned that this could affect next month’s summit between Kim and Trump.
But the US President said his administration had not received any official word of a change in plans for the June 12 meeting in Singapore.
“We haven’t been notified at all. We’ll have to see,” Trump said at the White House.
“We haven’t seen anything. We haven’t heard anything. We will see what happens. Whatever it is, it is.”
In an angrily worded statement, the North warned “if the US is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue.”
The statement was attributed to first vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan and carried by state media KCNA.
