BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday that the United States and North Korea should show patience and meet each other halfway, after U.S. President Donald Trump called off a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for next month.

Ministry spokesman Lu Kang made the comment at a daily news briefing, while noting that Trump had said he remained willing to meet with Kim in future.
