S. Korea’s Moon “baffled, perplexed” by Trump’s cancellation of Singapore Summit


문 대통령 방미 48시간도 안 돼 북미회담 취소… 청와대 당혹 “정상간 대화로 해결 기대”
Following news of U.S. Trump’s cancellation of the North Korea, U.S. summit, South Korea’s presidential Blue House released a statement where President Moon expressed “regret that the North American summit was not held on June 12 as scheduled.”
He said… denuclearization of the Korean peninsular and enduring peace are historic tasks that cannot be abandoned or delayed.”
Our chief Blue House correspondent Moon Connyoung has the details. “Baffled and very regretful” were the immediate words from South Korean President Moon Jae-in in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s abrupt cancellation of the planned meeting with North
Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore that had been set for June 12th.

South Korea’s presidential Blue House said it had not received any advance notice and was caught off guard Thursday night by the cancellation.

In a statement released following an hour long emergency meeting of his National Security Council at midnight, the South Korean president urged both North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump to resolve the issue through direct dialogue.

He said, “The sensitivity and difficulty of such diplomatic issues call for direct and more close dialogue by the leaders. The current way of communication just will not work.”

Mr. Trump’s cancellation of the Singapore summit comes within 48 hours of Mr. Moon’s visit to the White House on Tuesday to solely convince the U.S. president that meeting with North Korea’s Kim was still worth it.
How and whether this will affect future Seoul, Washington relations, Seoul, Pyongyang ties, and even Pyongyang, Washington relations, we’ll have to wait and see.

    1. US is seriously a trouble maker, they probably will lose grip on the south when they normalize with the north, but actually not north or south but the chicken they are guarding against.

    2. Moon should not be baffled, perplexed by Trump. It is expected because Trump do not want DPRK and ROK to be at peace and possibly re-united into one country. This scared the shit out of Trump because it means USA will have to remove all of its military bases from the Korean peninsula.

    3. Disappointment indeed … for now ! However you guys will not need at all the interferences of those outside powers such as CHINKNA, USA and RUSSIA…..just chase your dream of unification & prosperity together now !!!

    4. What did I say? If Koreans want real peace, work between themselves and forget about the U.S. Why bother with the U.S. anyway?

    5. Just let US be let go ignore them…Asia are far much stronger then this gangters that thinks they are tough while their troops are geting weaker and tired all over

    6. Who in the US gives a shit if the president of South Korea, Mr. Moon, is perplexed or not perplexed, baffled or not baffled. Who do you think you are ? You are nothing but a dog to the American motherfuckers. Sit. May the love and the peace of Jesus be with us.

    7. South Korea, North Korea, China, and Russia must unite for peace by forcing USA troops out of South Korea and develop peace outside of the harmful USA influence.

    8. This is not surprising. Infact it is to be expected. US wants to have a legitimate reason for its presence in the south china seas to monitor both China and Russia. If S. Korea and Taiwan improve their relations within that region and if Philippines reject US presence there then US will have no business being there. If anything I would be cynical to say that US would want the region to be in conflict not in peace.

    9. North Korea has threatened to cancel or delay summits. A clear message that they are not ready for any real change and you can’t blame Trump for not wanting waste time and energy. Looking back at the history of these issues with a North Korea, even an idiot can’t be fooled that many times.

    10. It is time koreans decide our own future. Trump scoffs at koreans both north and south.
      When will south koreans realize USA merely uses them as a puppet state.

    11. Moon was blindsided by KJU for the 1st summit and now Trump for the 2nd summit. He's been made to look stupid and foolish in front of the world. I think its time Korea grows up a bit and starts taking care of its own affairs instead of relying on other countries

    12. Trump has shown a serious level of lack of respect for the people of Korea and its president, Moon.

      Korean people want permanent peace in Korean peninsula, but Trump seems to have other agendas in his head.

      The way the situation unfolded today was absolutely disgusting when the other party, although disgruntling, was doing what it can do for the Singapore meeting.

      I am certain that almost all of Koreans felt shocked and, at the same time, humiliated by what was in the letter and the way Trump administration treated them.

    13. MR MOON, YOU'VE DONE YOUR BEST BUT CHINA DIDN'T HELP. ANY TIME MR KIM VISITS CHINA HE CHANGES. MR TRUMP THINK ABOUT INNOCENT LIVES N DO NOT GO IN LIKE LIBYA METHOD.
