North Korea Threatens Relations with the U.S. over Military Drills

By Nick Baum

WEDNESDAY – 5/16/18

North Korea made a statement yesterday stating that talks with South Korea have been suspended, and that the summit with the U.S. in Singapore might be canceled due to recent South Korea – US military drills on the southern half of the peninsula, as well as in the nearby sea. Kim Kye-gwan, an official in the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated that if Trump wanted better relations, that they would get the response they “deserve”.

Also stated in the announcement, which was aired through North Korean State Media across the country, was that North Korea canceled a meeting with South Korean officials and that if talks of relations between North Korea and the US were meant to be, then US President Donald Trump wouldn’t bring denuclearization to the front table.

As of now, the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and United States President Donald Trump is still on, as it will be on June 12 in Singapore, a neutral location. However, peace talks between the US, South and North Korea have been thrown up due to North Korea’s response of American military drills.
