Con­di­tions wrong for NKorea meet­ing: Spicer

Cape Breton Post - - News | World -

WASHINGTON — The White House says con­di­tions aren’t right for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to meet with Korean leader Kim Jong Un de­spite Trump’s open­ness to the idea in the fu­ture.

Trump told Bloomberg he’d be open to a meet­ing un­der the right cir­cum­stances and said that, if ap­pro­pri­ate, “I would be hon­oured to do it.” But White House spokesman Sean Spicer says he doesn’t see that hap­pen­ing any­time soon. He says Kim would have to show signs of “good faith.” But Spicer isn’t elab­o­rat­ing on ex­actly what con­di­tions would have to be met. Ten­sions with North Korea have es­ca­lated re­cently as Amer­i­can and other in­tel­li­gence agen­cies have sug­gested the coun­try was ready­ing a pos­si­ble nu­clear test.

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has said all op­tions, in­clud­ing a mil­i­tary strike, are on the ta­ble.
