South Korea’s Unification Minister said today that Seoul will press ahead with improving ties with North Korea after US President Donald Trump abruptly cancelled a summit with Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong-un.

“Our government will do its part in carrying out the Panmunjom Declaration,” Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon told reporters according to Yonhap, referring to the landmark agreement to bolster ties and push towards denuclearisation signed last month by Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

“It appears that (the North) remains sincere in implementing the agreement and making efforts on denuclearisation and peace building,” he added.
