The much anticipated Pacific summit at Singapore between
American president Donald Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong Un is cancelled after an announcement by Trump at the White house on Thursday.
The reasons were not entirely clear. Trump blamed the tone of anger in the last statement from North Korea as the reason for cancellation of the summit scheduled to happen on the twelfth June in Singapore.
North Korea expressed surprise and disappointment at Trump's decision to withdraw from the summit and expressed willingness to participate if summit is rescheduled in the near future.
White house released a subsequent statement from Trump which stated that America is ready with necessary military backup in case of any foolish or careless acts by North korea following America's decision to withdraw from the summit.
