The United States remains prepared to hold a meeting between the President of the United States Donald trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN, despite threats from the DPRK to withdraw from the negotiations.

She noted that the threats of the DPRK to withdraw from the agreement on the meeting was “fully expected” in Washington, but the us “hoped” that the meeting scheduled for June 12, will still take place.
