North Korea has threatened to cancel the planned summit, accusing the US administration of trying to force it "into a corner" on unilateral nuclear disarmament. This comes as Trump’s new national security adviser, John Bolton, says he is considering a “Libya model” to denuclearize North Korea, a model that Pyongyang has singled out in the past as a source of its distrust for Washington. Pyongyang has also cancelled high-level talks with Seoul over the US and the South's Max Thunder joint military exercises.
