European Markets Open Higher After Trump Scraps US-North Korea Summit

European stocks opened higher on Friday morning, as market participants’ fears were calmed by North Korea’s response to President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel a landmark summit.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 was up around 0.35 percent at 392.02 shortly after the opening bell, with almost all sectors and major bourses in positive territory.

North Korea’s vice foreign minister said the country was still hopeful of a “Trump formula” in order to resolve a standoff over its nuclear weapons program. The isolated regime also said it would remain open to resolving issues with the U.S after Trump canceled an upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
