SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with his top security and other aides after U.S. President Donald Trump cancelled his June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un earlier on Thursday, a spokesman for Moon said.

Blue House press secretary Yoon Young-chan said Moon was meeting with his foreign minister, defence minister and his chief of staff, among others.
