and Kim were scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12, for what would have been the first face-to-face meeting between a US and North Korean leader.

Versions why canceled the summit

  • Nuclear question

The news came as North Korea destroyed at least three nuclear tunnels, observation buildings, a metal foundry and living quarters at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site, in front of the invited international journalists.

However, no weapons inspectors or nonproliferation experts were invited to witness the event, and it was unclear whether the explosions rendered the tunnels inoperable, or only caused limited damage.

Experts have said while decommissioning the site is an important diplomatic gesture, it will not affect the North’s nuclear arsenal.

Perhaps lost interestest in the meeting with Kim Jong Un or the facts that internationals experts were not invited to the event pushed him to show strong position in nuclear question.

  • Secret agreement with South Korea?

The North Korea government recently threatened to cancel the summit over joint military exercises between the US and South Korea, while also expressing concern over statements made by White House National Security Adviser John Bolton regarding how the US might approach the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Some believe there might be a secret agreement between South Korea and the US that do not allow a partnership with North Korea.

  • Defending Vice-President Pence

the North Korean vice minister of foreign affairs on Thursday referred to Vice President Mike Pence as “stupid.”

“As a person involved in US affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing from the mouth of the US vice president,” Choe Son-hui said in a statement reported by North Korean state news.

“Whether the US will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behaviour of the United States,” Choi added.

This came not long after Pence suggested the situation with North Korea “may end like Libya,” seemingly alluding to the violent death of the infamous Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

  • In proactive mode

Doubts had grown in recent days about whether the summit would actually happen.   had repeatedly played up the historic significance of the meeting, he also often leavened his optimism with a cautious “we’ll see.”

The vice president’s comments also echoed those of ’s national security advisor, John Bolton, who had suggested the U.S. could pursue a Libya-style denuclearization plan with North Korea. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was eventually violently overthrown, a move the U.S. supported. North Korea’s Kim is concerned about regime change.

There is a version that ’s administration knew ahead that Kim will cancel it and decided to be the first one to do it.

Also, according to Bloomberg, Kim never had any intention of abandoning his nuclear weapons. He was simply buying time.

  • ’s health problems

One more possible option that could influence Trump’s decision is that president is under treatment of keratosis. Recently photos of suspicious spots on ’s face appeared and, according to the dermatologist, it is a growth of keratin on the skin or on mucous membranes stemming from keratinocytes, the prominent cell type in the epidermis.
