Until now the fate of the long-awaited summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un was unknown. Washington demanded that the DPRK started the process of denuclearization, whereas Pyongyang stressed that it would negotiate with Trump only if he was seeking to improve bilateral relations.

“I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump said, referring to the meeting with Kim slated for June 12. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place,” Trump’s letter to Kim Jong-un released by the White House reads.

For the cancellation the US president has blamed North Korea’s “tremendous anger and open hostility,” expressed in Kim’s latest statement.

In the letter, Trump also told Kim “do not hesitate to call me or write” if Pyongyang changes its mind regarding the planned summit.

The US president warned that with the canceled meeting, world lost a “great opportunity for lasting peace,” adding that while the North Koreans talked about their nuclear arsenal, American nukes are “so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.”
