North Korea has reportedly threatened to back away from the upcoming summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump if the U.S. doesn’t stop committing “unlawful and outrageous acts.”
“Whether the will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” the nation’s vice foreign minister, Choe Son-hui, said of the June 12 summit in Singapore, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.
Choe reportedly said she’d suggest to Kim reconsidering the summit in the event “the U.S. offends against our goodwill and clings to unlawful and outrageous acts.”
The threat came after Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House.
Trump said Tuesday “there’s a very substantial chance” his meeting with Kim won’t happen as planned, telling reporters that Kim had not met unspecified “conditions” for the summit.
