Korea proposes general-level military talks over repatriation of American troop remains

President Trump confirms he's ready to give 'Rocket Man' to Kim — and says he's preparing gifts for Putin after NATO summit

It continued, "The significant first meeting with Your Excellency and the joint statement that we signed together in Singapore 24 days ago was indeed the start of a meaningful journey".

"He's realized he can humiliate and ignore the U.S.as long as he flatters the president", Mount said.

The letter was dated July 6, 2018, and was addressed to "H.E. Donald J. Trump", in what appears to be the latest sign that the two men were getting along after making history at the first-ever meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean supreme leader in Singapore last month.

On Monday Trump reiterated his confidence in Kim.

The US military also announced that 100 wooden coffins had been dispatch to Panmunjom to receive the remains, although repatriation has yet to take place. "We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea".

The repatriation of the remains of USA soldiers from North Korea has been a major issue between Washington and Pyongyang since the end of the Korean War, when thousands of Americans were left in Korea either missing in action or as prisoners of war.

"Great progress being made", the president said in a tweet that included both a copy of Kim's letter, dated 6 July, and its translation. Roughly 5,300 U.S. troops presumed to have been killed in the Korean war are unaccounted for.

North Korea reportedly has the remains of about 5,300 United States soldiers who were killed during the Korean War, which ended with an armistice in 1953.

One observer pointed out that Trump would have likely criticized his response to North Korea had it been the reaction of another president.

Trump was in London to meet with United Kingdom leaders after leaving the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, when he tweeted Kim's letter. Despite the secretary's attempt to put a positive spin on the visit, as soon as he was out of the country, North Korea criticized his "unilateral and gangster-like" demands and called the talks "regrettable".

The Trump administration has insisted that progress is being made.

Pompeo had said a Pentagon team would meet with the North's officials on or around Thursday at the inter-Korea border to discuss the repatriation.

While reports stated the return would not involve payment, other than reimbursement for the costs incurred in recovering and repatriating the remains, reference to payments may have displeased Pyongyang.

KCNA did not say when the trip was made, but Kim Yong Chol, Kim's powerful right-hand man, told a visiting Seoul official last week that the leader was away for a trip to a "local region".
