    SEOUL: North Korea on Friday (May 25) said it was still willing to talk to the United States after President Donald Trump cancelled a summit between the two countries, a decision Pyongyang described as "extremely regrettable". "The abrupt announcement of the cancellation of the meeting is unexpected for us and we cannot but find it extremely regrettable," Kim Kye Gwan, North Korea's First Vice Foreign Minister, said in a statement carried by the state-run KCNA news agency. "We had set in high regards President Trump's efforts, unprecedented by any other president, to create a historic North Korea-US summit," said the...
  • Trump cancels Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

    President Donald Trump has canceled his historic summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month. The meeting, which would have marked the first face-to-face encounter between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, was set for June 12 in the southeastern Asian island city state. "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting," Trump wrote in a letter to Kim, which was released Thursday morning.

    SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - North Koreans are upbeat about the economic changes the summit between their leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump might bring, according to a member of a non-profit group who was in Pyongyang just last week. Singapore-based Choson Exchange, which has trained some 20,000 North Koreans since 2007, held its latest workshop in Pyongyang last week, focusing on entrepreneurship and start-up skills. A record number of North Koreans - almost 130 - signed up for the workshop. Ian Bennett, London-based outreach coordinator for Choson Exchange, said the North Koreans appeared more...

    Though there isn't much of anything that can bring the politically divided American people together these days, the upcoming meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un should be an exception. Democrats and Republicans and independents alike must stand together, rooting for success. And if Trump pulls off the heretofore unthinkable and manages to get Kim to dismantle his nuclear weapons and missile programs, entirely and verifiably, then he deserves much more than a grudging tip of the hat from his opponents and detractors. Rather, his achievement, should it come to pass, must be recognized for...

    With the Demilitarized Zone on the Korean Peninsula out of contention, the small nation of Singapore is a natural choice for the historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, analysts say. Trump announced in a tweet Thursday that the two leaders will meet in Singapore on June 12. Singapore is familiar ground for North Korea, and the two countries have had diplomatic relations since 1975. The reclusive communist country has its embassy in Singapore's central business district. The city is "a great location" for the summit, said Tom Plant, who specializes in nuclear...

Citing diplomatic sources in Washington, the Chosun Ilbo reported on Saturday (May 5) that Singapore is deemed the 'strongest' candidate to host the summit, although there is still a possibility that Mr Trump "who likes dramatic effects" would choose Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone at the last minute....

    The European Union and Mexico reached an agreement on Saturday on a new free trade deal, a coup for both parties in the face of increased protectionism from the United States under President Donald Trump. Since its plans for a trade alliance with the United States were frozen after Trump’s election victory, the EU has focused instead on trying to champion open markets and seal accords with other like-minded countries. The agreement in principle with Mexico follows a deal struck last year with Japan and comes ahead of talks next week with the Mercosur bloc of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and...

    An Israeli company located in Judea and Samaria is working to combat the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement through a monthly box subscription that allows supporters throughout the world the opportunity to be part of the Israel experience. Aryeh Powers, the director of marketing for Lev HaOlam, told Breitbart News that these gift boxes — which include items that are boycotted by anti-Israel entities as part of the BDS movement — reach thousands of people worldwide. “We send thousands of packages to people in multiple countries per month,” he said.

    Citizens from more than 30 countries around the world appealed to the UN Secretary-General to suspend UN Human Rights Commissioner Zaid Ra'ad al-Hussein after calling Judea and Samaria communities a "war crime", following the latest report he issued regarding the pace of construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria. "While tens of thousands of people are being slaughtered in Syria, and while women's rights are being disregarded in Iran, the Human Rights Commissioner is issuing a report on the settlement movement in Israel, which details construction information, calling it a war crime", mentioned the letter.

    Donald Trump, in only the 4th time in 70 years, disallowed the merger of Broadcom and QUALCOMM. Broadcom is the 5G leader out of Singapore with ties to Huawei, the giant Chinese electronics conglomerate that's also heavily tied to the PLA. The merger would have resulted in the dismantling of Qualcomm, with Broadcom and Huawei taking any advanced 5G technology and leaving the rest for scraps.

    A US guided missile destroyer’s deadly collision with an oil tanker near Singapore in 2017 was caused by “a sudden turn” made by the warship that put it in the path of the commercial vessel, said a report by the Singapore government Thursday. The collision on Aug. 21, which killed 10 sailors and was one of a handful of incidents in the Asia Pacific region involving US Navy warships, raised questions about Navy training and led to the removal of a number of officers. “The collision between the USS John S McCain (JSM) and Alnic MC (AM) as they were...
