North Korea a No-Show for Talks With US on Korean War Dead


Remains brought to South Korea would then be transferred to Hawaii, where painstaking forensic work would be carried out to identify them.

The remains of some U.S. soldiers were last returned in 2007, when then-New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson visited Pyongyang.

The declassified US intelligence sent to the United Nations sanctions committee estimated that ship-to-ship transfers may have provided North Korea with as much as 1,367,628 barrels of refined products.

North Korean negotiators failed to show up for scheduled talks with the Panmunjeom, Thursday, on repatriating the remains of US soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War, indicating a possible rift between the two countries in ongoing denuclearization talks.

The idea of "practical actions" is hardly a firm stance issued by the North Korean dictator.

Trump, in a tweet acknowledging the letter, described it as "a very nice note" adding, "great progress being made". "Great progress being made!".

On Thursday, after he arrived in Britain following the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump disclosed that he had received a letter from Kim Jong-un.

Although tensions have eased up since President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last month, talks on denuclearization have hit a rocky spot since then.

"I firmly believe that the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach of myself and Your Excellency Mr. President aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the USA will surely come to fruition", Kim wrote, referring to North Korea by its acronym.

South Korean officials later said the meeting would be rescheduled for July 15, but that was after USA negotiators arrived Thursday at the militarized border between the two Koreas and were kept waiting, the Yonhap News Agency reported, citing diplomatic officials it didn't identify. Despite Trump's claims that progress has been made on a denuclearization agreement, no concrete framework has been established between the two leaders to reconcile policy disagreements.
