Presumed US war remains begin journey home from South Korea

President Donald Trump in a late-night tweet praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after his regime provided the U.S. with what are believed to be the remains of USA service members who died during the Korean War era.

US Vice President Mike Pence welcomed the return of the remains of US soldiers who had been killed in the Korean War in Hawaii on Wednesday, saying his country will work more on the repatriation of war dead.

Asked about furthers steps North Korea should take, Pompeo said, "They need to completely, fully de-nuclearize".

Pence, whose father fought in the Korean War, said the United States "will never stop striving until every hero lost in the Korean War is home" and hence keep its promise "to leave no man behind".

"I don't have any announcement today but it's natural to get a lot of business done. but we are not there for any announcements", the official said. The laboratory uses forensic anthropology, odontology, DNA and other scientific methods to identify remains.

US spy agencies suspect that North Korea is building new missiles in the same research facility that manufactured the country's ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States, according to a recent report by The Washington Post, which cited officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to describe classified intelligence.

In a separate tweet, Trump argued that he "made them richer " and that the Koch network "is highly overrated". And to be clear, we've met with his team, explained this, and lobbied him on this to change their ways.

The returned remains are seen as one major accomplishment of Trump's historic summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un last month.

About 7,700 USA soldiers are listed as missing from the Korean War, and 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea.

North Korea handed over 55 boxes of remains last week on the 65th anniversary of an armistice that ended the fighting.

Also, between 1996 and 2005, U.S. Between 1990 and 1994, North Korea unilaterally handed over 208 caskets to the US, which turned out to contain remains of far more than 208 individuals, although forensics specialists thus far have established 181 identities.

"We see them going to work, just as before", one USA official told the Agency. They may also talk about ways to make sure their fishermen peacefully operate along the Korean sea boundary, the site of several bloody naval skirmishes in recent years.

The U.S. Defense Department estimates that about 7,700 American service members were missing during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953. Other items on their joint memorandum, such as a pledge to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", remain unaddressed.

"This is consistent with North Korea's public line, which is that its successful test program is now transitioning to mass production of nuclear and missile systems", he said. The summit came after the North demolished tunnels leading to an underground nuclear testing site.

The report says the findings are the latest to show that activity continues inside the North's nuclear and missile facilities, even after the June summit between the United States and North Korea.

The remains will go to a lab in Hawaii run by the military agency that identifies missing servicemen and women from past conflicts.

The ministry said last week it plans to reduce guard posts and equipment along the heavily fortified border as an initial step.

Between 1990 and 1994, North Korea unilaterally handed over 208 coffins to the U.S., which turned out to contain remains of far more than 208 individuals, although forensics specialists thus far have established 181 identities.
