North Korea threatens to cancel meeting with Trump: report

"This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula", a report from the North Korean Central News Agency stated, according to Yonhap News.

An incremental North Korean approach to denuclearisation at a June 12 summit with President Donald Trump will not be acceptable to the US president or the people of South Korea, South Korea's special national security adviser said on Tuesday.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that if North Korea agrees to fully dismantle its nuclear weapons program, then the United States will allow the American private sector to invest in the country. Coming as it does in the wake of the historic summit between North and South Korea, there are a lot of expectations from the meeting. Some analysts question whether the dismantling of the site is aimed at destroying evidence.

A North Korean delegation arrived in Beijing on Monday, Japanese media said, as the two allies step up diplomatic contacts ahead of a landmark meeting between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. The discussions may also include setting up working-level talks between the countries' sports officials over plans to field combined teams in some sports at the Asian Games in August. They also agreed to stop all hostile acts over "land, sea and air" that can cause military tensions and clashes, establish a liaison office in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, and to resume temporary reunions between war-separated families.

Moon said Trump, as well as the people of the United States, Japan and South Korea, would not be able to accept an incremental approach.
