US President Donald Trump cancelled his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent statement from Pyongyang, in a letter released by the White House.
Trump said it would be “inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” which was set for June 12 in Singapore.
“I was very much looking forward to being there with you,” Trump wrote in the letter to Kim.
Trump invited Kim to schedule a new meeting: “If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write.”
The US president wrote that he “felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me.”
