Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has just released a statement on the cancellation of the North Korea Summit.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday said President Trump canceled his planned summit with North Korea in part because the United States did not receive replies from Pyongyang on preparations for the meeting.
"I don't believe in that sense that we're in a position to believe that there could be a successful outcome," Pompeo said. "I think that's what the president communicated pretty clearly in his letter.
"I can add to that. Over the past many days, we have endeavored to do what Chairman Kim and I had agreed, which was to put teams, preparation teams together to begin to work to prepare for the summit and we have received no response to our inquiries from them."
Pompeo was testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee moments after the White House released a letter from President Trump to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un canceling the summit that was planned for June 12 in Singapore.
This is very surprising news and we will just have to wait and see what happens. Please share and comment with your thoughts.
