Trump scraps North Korea summit

Washington: U.S. President Donald Trump has called off a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, despite North Korea's fulfillment of its pledge to dismantle its nuclear site.

In a later statement at the White House, Trump said he had spoken to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and warned North Korea against any “reckless act,” saying, “Our military is the most powerful in the world.
