Trump cancels Kim summit amid North Korea ‘hostility’ – BBC News
US President Donald Trump has cancelled a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, saying the world had “lost a great opportunity for lasting peace”.
He said his decision was because of “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent North Korean statement.
In a letter to Mr Kim, he said he was still looking forward to meeting him “some day”.
It came hours after North Korea said it had dismantled tunnels at its only nuclear test site.
Foreign reporters at the Punggye-ri site in the north-east said they had witnessed a huge blast.
