Despite throwing the widely anticipated June 12 summit with President Donald Trump into doubt Wednesday, experts say North Korea will most likely still attend talks in Singapore to discuss the possibility of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

“I don’t think this is a surprise. I actually think this is part of North Korea’s playbook on negotiations,” said Lisa Collins, a fellow with the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

“They do this from time to time to create leverage going into negotiations,” Collins said, noting that the North reacted similarly ahead of the 1994 Agreed Framework and the Six-Party Talks, which both addressed the rogue regime’s nuclear program.

North Korea abruptly canceled talks with Seoul scheduled for Wednesday and threatened to walk away from the June summit with Washington, blaming the joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises in the region.

Collins described Pyongyang’s reaction to the planned military exercises as a “cover to express their dissatisfaction with a bunch of different issues.”
