Korea to hold talks about return of American troops' remains

About 200 sets of remains are expected to be returned across the inter-Korean border.

Kim praised Trump for "energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement".

If U.S. repatriation efforts are successful, it could offer a boost to South Korean President Moon Jae-in's ambition to retrieve the remains of all Korean War participants. North Korea then proposed meeting U.S. military officials on Sunday, U.S. and South Korean officials have said.

Pyongyang later proposed a military generals' meeting with the U.S. -led U.N. Command on Sunday, and Washington accepted it.

The South-African and the American started the match at 1pm local and well delayed the start of the second semi-final. Anderson will play again in the final on Sunday - hopefully there, a victor will be decided in four sets or less.

A U.S. Embassy spokeswoman in Seoul was not available for comment. The date of the letter suggests it may have been sent before Secretary of State Michael Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang last week, in which the United States and North Korea struggled to make headway on the denuclearization issue. But the North could also demand something in exchange for the return or raise other issues related to the armistice that ended hostilities in the Korean War.

USA forces brought some 100 wooden coffins into the DMZ last month, which will be used to transport the remains, according to Yonhap.

The North's proposal of talks with the UNC, even though the UNC is led by the United States, was seen as an attempt to use the meeting not only to discuss the repatriation of war remains but also other issues, such as a proposal to jointly declare an end to the Korean War.

At the Singapore summit, Kim Jong Un made a broad commitment to "work towards denuclearisation", but fell short of details on how or when he would dismantle North Korea's nuclear programme, which it has pursued in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
