President Donald Trump said he could still meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month, just one day after he cancelled a planned June 12 summit in Singapore.

“We’ll see what happens. It could even be the 12th. We’re talking to them now,” Mr Trump said on Friday. “They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it.”

His comments came after North Korea issued an unexpectedly moderate response to his abrupt decision on Thursday to cancel what would be the first meeting between a US president and North Korean leader.

Many analysts thought North Korea would blame the US, but Pyongyang responded by saying it remained interested in holding the summit and was open to “resolving problems at any time”.

“We had set in high regards President Trump’s efforts, unprecedented by any other president, to create a historic North Korea-US summit,” said Kim Kye Gwan, the North Korean vice-minister for foreign affairs.
