North Korea threatens to pull out of summit with Trump

North Korea has said it may pull out of a summit with US President Donald Trump if the US insists it gives up its nuclear weapons.
 
The highly anticipated meeting between Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un is due to take place on 12th of June.
 
But in an angry statement, North Korea's vice-foreign minister accused the US of making reckless statements and of harbouring sinister intentions.
 
He pointed the finger squarely at US National Security Adviser John Bolton.
 
"We do not hide our feeling of repugnance towards him," Kim Kye-gwan said.
 
The White House has responded by saying it is still hopeful the meeting will go ahead.
 
"The president is ready if the meeting takes place. If it doesn't, we'll continue the maximum pressure campaign that's been ongoing," said spokesperson Sarah Sanders.
 
The groundbreaking agreement for Kim and Trump to meet came about as North Korea said it was committed to denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.
 
Exactly what that would entail has remained unclear, but North Korea has invited foreign media to witness the dismantling of its main nuclear test site later this month.
