North Korea Casts Doubt On Trump Summit, Suspends Talks With South

North Korea on Wednesday threw into question an unprecedented summit between its leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump scheduled for next month, denouncing military exercises between South Korea and the United States as a provocation and calling off high-level talks with Seoul.A report on North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency angrily attacked the “Max Thunder” air combat drills, which it said involved U.S. stealth fighters and B-52 bombers, and appeared to mark a break in months of warming ties between North and South Korea and between Pyongyang and Washington. The KCNA report called the air drills a “provocation” that went against the trend of warming ties.

Shouldn't the Koreans work it out themselves for their own mutual neighborly prosperity? Afterall, they're one race, like family. Why would feuding family members seek mediation from complete strangers who have their own agendas unaligned with the disputing family.

Was it really necessary to have a military drill while peace talks are ongoing?

No peace talks were ongoing.  Nothing was happening. Besides, Kim Jong Un has never really planned to go as far as Singapore....

Half and a half. "The United States is still hopeful about a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but President Donald Trump is prepared for a tough negotiation process, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Wednesday."
