WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday said it was unclear if his planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would still go forward and said he would continue to insist on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

“We’ll have to see,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked if the summit was still on.

“No decision, we haven’t been notified at all ... We haven’t seen anything, we haven’t heard anything,” he said.
