Koreas Start preparatory talks to Install Kim-Moon summit

"The U.S. White House's purposeful attempts to undermine the viability of the Kim Jong Un regime and the demonstration of its readiness for the removal of the North Korean leadership through the use of force are pushing Pyongyang towards adventurist steps".

Defence Committee chairman, Dr Julian Lewis MP, said North Korea also posed a cyber threat and called for more money to counter it.

The WannaCry attack hit targets across the world, including the NHS, in what is thought to be one of the most damaging cyber-attacks yet in the UK.

Kim made a surprise visit to Beijing last month and met President Xi Jinping, which appeared to be aimed at improving both countries' positions ahead of Kim's planned summits with Moon and Trump.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho has credited leader Kim Jong Un with thawing inter-Korean ties.

Trump and Kim are expected to have a sitdown for a major peace summit during May.
