'Dear Mr Chairman, We greatly appreciate your time, patience and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions relative to a summit long sought by both parties, which was scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore. We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant. I was very much looking forward to being there with you... Еще. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting. 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. You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used. I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you. In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families. That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated. If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history. Sincerely yours, Donald J. Trump President of the United States of America'» US President Donald Trump has cancelled his planned June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, as announced in a letter read by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at a hearing before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in Washington D.C. on Thursday. In the letter addressed to Kim, Trump wrote that the long-planned summit would be «inappropriate» based on the tremendous anger and open hostility,» as shown in Pyongyang's most recent statements, adding that «the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.» The US president noted in the letter that «this missed opportunity is truly a sad moment in history» and that «some day, I look very much forward to meeting you.» Earlier on Thursday, North Korean Vice-Foreign Minister and nuclear negotiator Choe Son Hui said in a statement: «Whether the US will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behaviour of the United States.» In addition, Choe also called US Vice-President Mike Pence a «political dummy» for comparing Libya to North Korea.
