DPRK says may 'reconsider' top level meeting with US

Xinhua | Updated: 2018-05-16 10:59

PYONGYANG - A senior official of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Wednesday said the country may reconsider a scheduled DPRK-US summit if the United States insists on pressuring DPRK to abandon its nuclear arsenal.

The DPRK had earlier announced a suspension of a ministerial level meeting with the Republic of Korea (ROK) to protest an ongoing US-ROK joint military drill.

The high-level inter-Korean talks are scheduled for Wednesday, and US President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet the DPRK's top leader Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore.

The US-ROK joint drill is a deliberate challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and another demonstration of "maximum pressure and sanctions" policy of the United States and the ROK towards the DPRK, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said early Wednesday.

The two-week drill involves over 100 aircraft including B-52 strategic nuclear bombers and F-22 Raptor stealth fighters.
