Trump's Just Cancelled His Meeting With Kim Jong-Un – But Why?

Trump's Just Cancelled His Meeting With Kim Jong-Un – But Why?by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

The forthcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un in Singapore later this June was set to be nothing short of historic, the North Korean representatives put it themselves so plainly – yet, sadly, it seems that a meeting which a year ago would have seemed impossible has hit the skids in spectacular fashion. Cracks appeared to be appearing in the arrangement as early as a few days ago, whereby North Korean representatives took particular dislike to comments made by security chief John Bolton – who had suggested that the US meeting with North Korea could offer a similar situation as to that with Libya – and as US reps continued to insist that encouragement of nuclear disarmament would be on the table, at least on their side of things. The famously reclusive Pyongyang took issue with this – despite having taken steps to dismantle a nuclear test site and having advised that they would cease any future testing – and this, it seems, may have helped to put a plug in there being any chance of a face-to-face between Trump and Kim.

Rather than characteristically take to Twitter to discuss such matters, the President has compiled a formal letter to North Korean representatives which has since been made public. It hasn’t seemed particularly cosy on the US-NK front in terms of negotiations over the past few days, and the release of Trump’s letter appears to put paid to there being any chance of the two leaders meeting up to discuss issues. “I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump writes. “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.”

“Some day I very much look forward to meeting you,” notes Trump in his message. “In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now at home with their families.” Despite the President’s warm thanks, the letter makes note of ‘tremendous anger and open hostility’ received by the US from Mr Kim – meaning that, at least for now, the two figureheads will remain divided. Quite where things will go from here will remain to be seen – and we will keep you posted as soon as news arises.
