North Korea didn't show up at meeting with U.S.

President Donald Trump shared a "nice note" from North Korea's Kim Jong Un that said their summit last month started them on a "meaningful journey" and expressed hope that their improved relationship would lead to another get-together.

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".

South Korea's urbanization is one reason why more than a 1,000 USA service members are unaccounted for, said McKeague. But the North Korean leader never showed up during Pompeo's three-day visit. But the president's optimistic outlook about North Korea's willingness to denuclearize and steps in that direction have been brought into question, after an NBC report claiming North Korea has been expanding a nuclear facility.

More than 36,000 US troops died in the three-year war, which ended in an armistice instead of a peace treaty, leaving the peninsula divided by one of the world's most heavily fortified borders.

Mr Kim had agreed during the summit with President Trump to recover "POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified".

"If those requests were "gangster-like" then the world is a gangster, because there was a unanimous decision at the U.N. Security Council about what needs to be achieved", Pompeo replied.

Global stocks rebound but trade war fears remain
Some US business groups and lawmakers from Trump's own Republican Party were critical of the escalating tariffs. This will allow the two countries enough time to settle their high-stakes trade dispute through negotiations.


Through decades of negotiations, North Korea has repatriated 629 sets of remains of American soldiers to the United States.

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

But North Korea's delegation failed show up.

In his letter, which was written 24 days after the June 12 summit in Singapore, Kim addressed Mr Trump as "Your Excellency Mr President".

If the agency does return to North Korea, he said cooperation will be key.

There is speculation that North Korea may also want payment for the return of the remains, our correspondent adds. But he also acknowledged that a lot of work remained to be done, including on the issue of setting a timeline for denuclearization. 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.
