Donald Trump threatens Kim Jong Un ahead of summit
18 May, 2018, 13:46 | Author: Dustin Murphy
President Donald Trump rebutted his national security adviser, telling reporters that he didn't consider the nuclear disarmament of Libya a model for negotiations with North Korea over its atomic weapons program.
Despite Pyongyang's threat this week to cancel his summit with Kim, North Korean officials are continuing to hold planning talks for the June 12 meeting in Singapore, Trump said.
China has been supportive of upcoming talks between Trump and Kim, now planned to take place in Singapore on June 12.
But on May 16, North Koreaannounced that it will indefinitely postpone high-level talks with South Korea and "reconsider" plans for the June 12 meeting between Kim and Trump in Singapore. "After that, the North Koreans released the three Americans, so it's unlikely that Bolton was the motivating factor", Chang said.
Hence, when Kim cavils or balks in Singapore, as he nearly surely will, at any demand for a pre-emptive surrender of his nuclear arsenal, Trump should have a fallback position.
The threatened cancellation of the summit, the first between USA and North Korean leaders, would deal a major blow to what could be the biggest diplomatic achievement of Mr Trump's presidency. "The Libyan model that was mentioned was a much different deal", he said in the Oval Office. We decimated that country.
An end to US and South Korean military exercises and sanctions on the North, trade and investment, USA recognition of his regime, a peace treaty, and the eventual removal of USA bases and troops. "So I see him testing the waters and pushing the United States".
South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the North's main state-controlled media outlet, the KCNA, announced that the annual "Max Thunder" joint drills underway between the South Korean and US air forces are a rehearsal for an invasion of the North and a provocation.
Pyongyang has also taken strong exceptions to military drills between the US and South Korea.
But, Trump seemed to speculate China might be behind the shift in rhetoric from North Korea. Reps. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., and Brad Sherman, D-Calif., the heads of the Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, wrote to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on May 9 to ask for an update on North Korea sanctions and call for more.
