North Korea Says US-South Korean Military Exercises Imperil Summit

"We went in there to beat him", Trump said. "We will see what happens".

With over a month left before the proposed meeting and the US/NK relationship already taking a frosty turn since last week's hostage release, there's a significant possibility the meeting doesn't happen as planned, or at all in 2018. "And if it doesn't, we go on to the next step", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

Analysts said North Korea's threat to scuttle the summit is likely an attempt to gain leverage over Washington, which has demanded the North immediately and irreversibly cease its nuclear weapons program.

The President noted that North Korea's harsher tone this week came after Kim met for the second time with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and suggested the Chinese leader could be "influencing" Kim to harden his stance. Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong, attends, making her the first member of her family to visit South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War.

Xi has met twice with Kim over the past two months in what is seen as an attempt to ensure China's interests are upheld in any negotiations between the USA and North Korea.

"I really don't know, no". So that's a lot different from what you read, but oftentimes what you read if it's not fake news, it's true.

Last week, Trump had said he and Kim would try to make the summit a "very special moment for world peace". Months ago they were threatening to nuke us. We may have the meeting; we may not have the meeting. "It is fair to say that there has been very little progress yet in terms of the practical issues", he said.

North Korean officials suddenly cut-off communications with South Korea and threatened to withdraw from the upcoming summit earlier this week; accusing the United States of practicing "invasion" drills during a joint military exercise. "We just can't do it", he said.

"Look, the president is prepared and will be ready to meet, and we're continuing to move forward with the preparations, at this point", Sanders said. "But if you read the newspapers, maybe it won't happen". "I will tell you very shortly".

The Blue House intends to "sufficiently convey (to the US) what we've discerned about North Korea's position and attitude. and sufficiently convey the US' position to North Korea", thereby helping to bridge the gap between their positions, the official said.

"If the United States is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue", the North Korean minister added.

The drastic change in tone came after months of easing tension and just days after North Korea had announced it would publicly shut its nuclear test site next week and improved the mood for a United States summit by releasing the three detained Americans last week.

"We decimated that country. That country was decimated". Pyongyang has blamed the Libya deal for Gaddafi's eventual downfall.

"The Libyan model is not a model that we have at all when we are thinking of North Korea", the president said Thursday.

"If the USA is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue", first vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan said in a statement carried by state media.

The DPRK took "a resolute step" to postpone the north-south high-level talks indefinitely until the South Korean authorities "take a responsible measure, and notified it to them and made this public through a KCNA report", he said.

"People have been fooled for so long now that whatever Kim Jong Un promises, they refuse to believe it", he said.
