UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today said he was deeply concerned as US President Donald Trump cancelled a widely anticipated nuclear summit next month with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

UN Secretary-General said this after he presented a new UN disarmament agenda in Geneva today. Mr. Guterres said that he urged the parties to continue their dialogue to find a path to a peaceful and verifiable denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

His comments came shortly after US president informed Kim Jong Un that he was cancelling the nuclear summit scheduled on June 12 in Singapore. The decision came as North Korea said it had completely dismantled its nuclear test site.
