South tries to set talks

The Morning Bulletin - - WORLD -

SOUTH Korea is push­ing to re­set high-level talks be­tween the US and North Korea and will com­mu­ni­cate closely with Wash­ing­ton and Py­ongyang to in­crease the chances of a suc­cess­ful sum­mit be­tween US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on re­solv­ing the stand­off over the North’s nukes.

The an­nounce­ment in Seoul came a day af­ter North Korea threat­ened to scrap next month’s his­toric meet­ing be­tween Mr Trump and Mr Kim, say­ing it has no in­ter­est in a “one-sided” af­fair.
