The US military is ready if North Korea would do something foolish or negligent, Donald Trump said following Thursday’s decision to cancel the meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, according to several reports.
According to the New York Times, President Trump, citing a flurry of hostile statements from North Korea, pulled out of a highly anticipated summit meeting with Kim Jong-un on Thursday, telling the North Korean leader “this missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.”
At the same time, he paved way for further dialogue with Kim Jong-Un, and did not rule out that the meeting could be held at a later date.
“If Kim Jong-Un chooses to participate in constructive talks, I’m ready,” said Donald Trump.
“Until then, the United States will put pressure on the country and continue its hard sanctions,” said the president.
