South Korea’s state news agency, Yonhap, reports Seoul’s top security official, as saying that the North Korea-US summit will be held as scheduled despite fresh tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Chung Eui-yong, chief of the presidential National Security Office, noted: “We believe there is a 99.9 percent chance the North Korea-U.S. summit (set for June 12 in Singapore) will be held as scheduled. But we’re just preparing for many different possibilities.”

He commented aboard Air Force One bound for Washington, where President Moon Jae-in is to hold a summit with US President Donald Trump later today.
