US prepares for North Korea's return of American war remains

  • Poll reveals what voters think about Trump Kim summit

USA officials expect the remains to be handed over to United Nations Command in South Korea at Osan Air Base near Seoul then transferred to Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

"There could be additional measures should North Korea follow suit with productive cooperation".

"It is a powerful one where the ROK and the US agreed to halt that", Yonhap quoted DeTrani as saying.

A more effective way of repatriating remains is to have a joint mission between United States researchers and the North Korean military, Downes said.

In a joint statement at last week's summit, Kim pledged to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for US security guarantees. While the US military preparations suggest that the repatriation of war remains could be imminent, it remains unclear when and how it would occur.

US President Donald Trump extended sanctions against North Korea for one year, saying the country still posed an "extraordinary threat" despite insisting just days earlier that Pyongyang was no longer a nuclear danger to the US.

Pompeo said United States allies and North Korea's neighbour and ally China were supportive of the United States policy of maintaining sanctions on Pyongyang until its denuclearisation was complete.

A USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity, played down the significance of suspending the Korean Marine Exchange Program training exercises, saying they were relatively minor.

Ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-duk said Tuesday that Seoul and Beijing share a "strategic goal" in achieving the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula and that progress in nuclear diplomacy has facilitated high-level contacts between North Korea and its neighbors.

Kim's visit to Beijing, while expected, is one way for China to highlight its crucial role in USA efforts to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program.

Trump repeated his thanks to Chinese President Xi Jinping for supporting sanctions, although he said that the border between China and North Korea was "getting a little weaker now".

Abraham Denmark of the Wilson Center warned a congressional hearing: "Considering North Korea's repeated history of violating past agreements, there is little reason to trust them this time".

"I expect they will talk about the path going forward and where priorities should lie", Glaser said.

About 7,700 US military personnel still remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 Korean War, US military data show.

On June 19, USA and S Korea announced their decision to suspend Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise (joint military exercise). North Korea had long sought an end to the war games.

From 1996 to 2005, joint U.S.
