UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – North Korea threatens to abandon the summit with the US in protest against the teachings of Washington and Seoul, the Yonhap agency reported on Tuesday.
Also Pyongyang, according to the agency, canceled the high-level talks with Seoul, scheduled for May 16. According to the information of “Renhap”, the North Korean agency of the CTC has disseminated a message explaining that “the exercises of the US Air Force and South Korea are a rehearsal of the invasion of the North and provocation against the background of warming of inter-Korean ties.”
It was expected that inter-Korean talks at a high level were to be held in the southern part of the settlement of Panmunjom. The parties planned to discuss the further development of relations following the summit of the leaders of the South and North of the Korean peninsula.
Negotiations of US President Donald Trump and leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-no are scheduled for June 12. They should be held in Singapore.
In April, a historic summit was held with the participation of the leaders of the DPRK and South Korea, at which the parties announced the beginning of negotiations on the conclusion of a peace treaty in the Korean War and the work on the denuclearization of the peninsula.
