North Korea said Friday it is willing to talk to the United States "at any time" after President Donald Trump abruptly cancelled a summit, a decision that once more casts a pall of uncertainty over the the turbulent Korean peninsula.Trump blamed "open hostility" from the North Korean regime for his decision to call off the planned talks with Kim Jong Un, and warned Pyongyang against committing any "foolish or reckless acts". First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan called Trump's decision "unexpected" and "regrettable".Just before Trump announced the cancellation of the talks, North Korea declared it had "completely" dismantled its nuclear test site in the country's far northeast, in a carefully choreographed goodwill gesture ahead of the summit.Politically, Trump had invested heavily in the success of the planned summit.The White House viewed North Korea's objection to a routine U.S.-South Korean joint military exercise -- and its recent cancellation of a meeting with the South Koreans -- as a breach of its commitments leading up to the summit.
