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.
