WASHINGTON – The United States said on Tuesday it was moving ahead with preparations for a much-anticipated summit next month between President Donald Trump and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s top leader Kim Jong-un, after Pyongyang appeared to cast doubt over the event.

"We will continue to plan the meeting," US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters, adding that Washington had received "no notification" of a position change by the DPRK.

DPRK's official Korean Central News Agency called joint US-ROK military exercises a "provocation" and said Pyongyang had no choice but to suspend the talks.

The state media also said the United States should think twice about the fate of the DPRK-US summit.

The DPRK-ROK meeting was due to focus on plans to implement a declaration that emerged from an April 27 inter-Korea summit, including promises to formally end the Korean War and pursue "complete denuclearization", the ROK's unification ministry, which handles ties with the DPRK, said on Tuesday.
