No, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un isn't killing his summit with President Donald Trump.OFF TO A BAD STARTThe United States reached a landmark nuclear agreement with North Korea in 1994 following months of war fears triggered by the North's threat to turn its stockpile of nuclear fuel into bombs.However, disagreements between Washington and Pyongyang over sanctions imposed on the North temporarily derailed the six-nation talks before North Korea conducted its first nuclear test in October 2006 .Disarmament talks resumed a few weeks later and the six governments in February 2007 reached a deal where North Korea would receive an aid package worth about $400 million in return for disabling its nuclear facilities and allowing international inspectors to verify the process.But a final attempt to complete an agreement to fully dismantle North Korea's nuclear program fell through in December 2008 when the North refused to accept U.S.-proposed verification methods.The six-nation talks have stalled since then and the North conducted another nuclear test in May 2009 .
