US president Donald Trump says he will “walk out” if planned talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un are not fruitful.
In a joint press conference, Trump and Japanese PM Shinzo Abe said maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea over nuclear disarmament.
“Our campaign of maximum pressure will continue until North Korea denuclearises,” he added.
“As I’ve said before, there is a bright path available to North Korea when it achieves denuclearisation in a complete and verifiable and irreversible way. It would be a great day for them, it would be a great day for the world.”
