US President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12.

"I firmly believe that the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach.aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the USA will surely come to fruition".

The US secretary of state visited Pyongyang on Friday and Saturday in an attempt to agree details of a deal made during June's historic summit between Donald Trump and the North Korean dictator.

Kim refers to Trump as "your excellency" five times, praises the "improvement of relations" between the USA and North Korea, and expresses hope for a new future.

"I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-US relations will bring our next meeting forward", Kim concludes, using the abbreviation for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

An agreement to return the remains of U.S. service members was touted by the Trump administration as one of the commitments secured during the president's historic summit with Kim on 12 June.

Following the North Koreans' no-show at Thursday's meeting, the USA state department said the two delegations had agreed to meet on 15 July.

North Korea asked the UNC Military Armistice Commission for general-level military talks on Sunday, according to sources, after it failed to show up at a meeting with the United States.

Mr. Pompeo denied that the talks went poorly, telling pool reporters that progress was made "in every element of our discussions".

The American described the talks as "productive", but did not meet with Mr Kim.

North Korean officials skipped planned talks on repatriating the remains of American war dead Thursday in the latest snub of a USA administration eager to show progress on efforts to rid the communist state of nuclear weapons. "We had anticipated the USA side would come with a constructive idea, thinking we would take something in return", a foreign ministry official said in a statement.

Mr. Trump said he received "a very nice note" from Mr. Kim on Twitter.

North Korea had also released the three American prisoners the government had been holding ahead of the summit. Although Pompeo called the meetings "productive", North Korea said the lack of emphasis on security guarantees was "regretful".

North Korean and United States teams, as well as UN officials, had been due to discuss the details of repatriation.

North Korea has long trumpeted a denuclearization goal, but one that it sees as a lengthy process of undefined multilateral disarmament on the entire Korean peninsula, rather than a unilateral dismantlement of its nuclear arsenal.
