By some random series of events, North Korea and South Korea recently found peace amongst each other. An accomplishment many thought would never happen. However, in continued peace talks about denuclearization, Kim Jong Un decided to put his guard down and entertain the idea. He was even scheduled to meet with Trump about furthering such ideals. However, in a shocking turn of events, North Korea officially threatened to cancel this meeting, in light of learning about military practices being conducted by U.S. and South Korean troops.
North Korea’s Central News Agency reported, “The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities.”
A spokeswoman for the State Department was reached for comment. About the news, she said, “We have not heard anything from [the North Korean government] or the government of South Korea to indicate that we would not continue conducting these exercises or that we would not continue planning for our meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un next month.”
Adding, “What we have to go on is what Kim Jong Un had said before, that he understands and appreciates the importance to the United States of having these joint exercises. We will continue to go ahead and plan the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un.” Wow. Just when you thought something positive would happen, Donald had to go and f**k it all up. Unbelievable.
