North Korea will reconsider a planned summit with President Trump if it continues to be pressured to “unilaterally” abandon its nuclear program, according to a senior North Korean official.

Yonhap News Agency reported on Tuesday that North Korea’s Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan says the country will not accept a U.S. deal that will force the country to abandon its nuclear program in exchange for the relaxation of economic sanctions.

Trump accepted an offer for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un earlier this year, stunning Washington D.C. and the world after months of tough talk aimed at Kim’s government.

The statement came hours after the country announced it was suspending talks with South Korea, with which it had been engaged in unprecedented negotiations for weeks.

    Another brilliant 3D chess move by Trump. Win, win, win. And we are all just shocked and surprised that NK did this.
