  • Trump thanks North Korea’s Kim for returning war remains ‘I look forward to seeing you soon

Trump tweeted about the letter on Thursday, thanking Kim for returning the remains of some American war dead from the 1950-1953 Korean War.

"We have remains that look to have been in a state of preservation consistent with coming from the Korean War era", he said, and materials provided with the remains included USA -issued military equipment such as canteens and buttons.

Conclusions that the human remains were likely Americans from the Korean War was based on their state of preservation, as well as Korean War-era materials in some boxes that included boots, canteens, buckles, and buttons, according to Dr. John Byrd, the DPAA's chief scientist who reviewed the contents of the boxes in North Korea.

The repatriation of 55 boxes of USA service members was part of the commitment made by Trump and Kim in their Singapore summit on June 12.

He said numerous recovered remains likely belonged to U.S. Army soldiers who fought in the November, 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir - 1,024 Americans are still missing from that battle.

In an interview back in 2013, Markle referred to a "leisurely dinner of seafood and pasta" as one of her top meal options. The retired lighting director revealed how he has not spoken to his "beloved bean" Meghan for more than 10 weeks.

Byrd said he would not venture a guess at how many individuals are represented by the bones contained in the 55 boxes. U.S. Marines also fought in the famous battle, but mainly along the reservoir's western side.

Sanders later told reporters that there are now no plans for a second summit. Two members of that person's family have been notified, Kelly McKeague, director of the Defense POW-MIA Accounting Agency, told reporters.

The US military flew the caskets from Osan Air Base in South Korea. "This direction is without a doubt correct", he said. If matches are achieved, identification can be done relatively quickly, he said, but in other cases the identification work will take years. It marks the beginning of a long process to identify all the remains. He was identified from remains recovered by a joint U.S.

In a landmark summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12, Kim, who is seeking relief from tough sanctions, committed in a broad statement to work toward denuclearization, but Pyongyang has offered no details as to how it might go about this.

"No caveats, no conditions set". I am not at all surprised that you took this kind action.

The remains were formally repatriated Tuesday in Osan, South Korea to to the control of the United Nations before being transported to Hawaii, where the DPAA's identification laboratory is located. McKeague said Thursday that the North Koreans who provided the 55 boxes last week did not say whether they have others.

The latest letter from Kim arrived on the heels of concerns over North Korea's ballistic missile program and commitment to denuclearization.

On Monday, a senior US official said USA spy satellites had detected renewed activity at the North Korean factory that produced the country's first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.
