Trump Cancels Historic June 12 Meeting With North Korean Leaders Seeking A Nuclear Free Korean Peninsula And An End To The Korean War; Promptly Reinstates Meeting
On April 27, 2018 President of South Korea Moon Jae-in and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un “declared they would work toward a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War.”
However, on Thursday May 24, President Trump canceled the meeting after, as Trump wrote in a letter, “based on [Kim Jong Un’s] tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in [his] most recent statement.”
North Korea and South Korea still seem to be working towards a solution. Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong Un held an unannounced meeting on Saturday May 26, 2018 “to ensure the upcoming high-stakes summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump is a success, South Korean officials said.”
The meeting eventually took place as planned on June 12, 2018 in Singapore.
