President Donald Trump cancels summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, blaming "tremendous anger and open hostility"



US President Donald Trump has cancelled a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, blaming "tremendous anger and open hostility" from the North.

 
He said it was possible a meeting could still take place but warned North Korea against committing "foolish" acts.


The summit aimed to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons and would have been the first time a sitting US president met a North Korean leader.


But doubts had emerged on both sides whether the talks would take place.


Mr Trump's announcement marks a fresh twist in the turbulent relationship between him and Mr Kim.
