U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday called off a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for next month, citing Pyongyang's "open hostility," and warned that the U.S. military was ready in the event of any reckless acts by North Korea.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who traveled to North Korea twice to prepare the summit, meeting Kim both times, said it was a disappointing development but "frankly not a surprise".Last month Trump had praised Kim as "very honorable" while preparing for the summit but the outlook for the meeting suffered a setback this month after North Korea angrily rejected the notion that it would agree to unilateral nuclear disarmament as the United States has demanded.Trump canceled the summit a few hours after North Korea followed through on a pledge to blow up tunnels at its main nuclear test site, which Pyongyang said was proof of its commitment to end nuclear testing. Still, South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged Trump and Kim to talk directly to each other.
