South Korea said it hopes to continue talks with the north, even after the rogue regime canceled a planned summit between both nations.
Early Thursday morning, the south’s presidential spokesman said the country will continue high level negotiations with Kim Jong Un in an effort to salvage the north-south summit.
He added, the government will also work as a coordinator between the U.S. and the north ahead of a separate meeting between Kim Jong Un and President Trump in Singapore.
North Korea cancelled its meeting with the south Wednesday, citing joint military exercises with the U.S.
Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham issued a stern warning to the North Korean dictator.
In an interview Wednesday, the South Carolina lawmaker said if the rogue leader wants to survive then he’ll meet with President Trump.
Graham said the president has drawn a red line, and if North Korea continues to threaten the U.S. with nuclear weapons — the rogue regime will be destroyed.
