Trump has 'little gift' for N.Korean leader

Trump has 'little gift' for N.Korean leader

Kim did not meet with the secretary of State.

The Joint Security Area was created in 1953 as a neutral area inside the Demilitarised Zone.

But a closer look at the language of the statement has actually led one analyst to be optimistic that a "train wreck" may have been averted during Pompeo's meeting, and that the door is still open to progress.

Trump has expressed an eagerness to tout the recovery of the war dead, telling Fox News that Kim was "giving us back the remains of probably 7,500 soldiers".

The agency has built up a DNA database from relatives that covers 92 percent of the Korean War missing, versus 85 percent for the Vietnam War and 3 percent for World War Two.

Thirteen years after its last work in North Korea, the agency could return after leader Kim Jong Un agreed at a June 12 summit with President Donald Trump to resume the recovery and repatriation of US remains. "Great progress being made", Trump said in a tweet that also included a copy of the correspondence from Kim.

The new system was agreed in a bitterly fought 2017 referendum, but the changes have been vehemently denounced by the opposition. The president will also have the power to dissolve parliament, issue executive decrees and impose a state of emergency.

But officials have allowed three North Korean feature films and six short movies to be screened at the annual Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival on Seoul's outskirts from July 12, organizers said.

Other speculation is that North Korea was discomforted with the way it was portrayed by the US media _ as trying to make money from the war remains. The transfer of remains between North Korea and the United States has not taken place since 2005.

American officials have been on standby for weeks and have sent wooden coffins and flags to Panmunjom in preparation for a handover.

Byrd, a forensic anthropologist, was part of a 15-strong DPAA team in North Korea 20 years ago. Pyongyang has asked the UN Command Armistice Commission to upgrade the talks to a higher level to include a US general, South Korea's foreign ministry said. The news agency noted that the request followed North Koreans not showing up to the meeting with USA representatives. As the war was fought on Korean soil, however, only North Korea has remains to return.

The agency also says that North Korean officials have indicated they have "as many as 200 sets of remains" already recovered that could be ready for return. It does not, however, give any mention to the end of North Korea's nuclear program, nor the end of the country's regular human rights abuses.
