US Plane Heads to N. Korea for war Remains

In symbolic gesture North Korea returns remains of US service members

The White House and Department of Defense had to clarify that the claim was not true shortly after the speech and sent 100 coffins to Panmunjom for pickup by the North Koreans shortly thereafter.

"The United States owes a profound debt of gratitude to those American service members who gave their lives in service to their country and we are working diligently to bring them home", the White House said.

"As far as the Trump administration's goals on North Korea are concerned, nothing has changed", he said.

North and South Korea agreed to hold military talks on Tuesday, the South's Yonhap news agency reported on Friday, as both sides seek to defuse tensions amid a thaw in relations. The majority of Americans killed in Korea, however, are still buried in cemeteries or the sites of major battles.

Kim paid tribute to the North's Korean War "martyrs" and to Chinese soldiers killed in the conflict, state media said. -North Korea military search teams conducted 33 recovery operations that collected 229 sets of American remains. From there, they are expected to be taken to the DPAA laboratory in Hawaii where they will be identified.

The war lasted from 1950 to 1953 and saw the Soviet-backed North invade the US-backed South.

Many officials in Washington appeared concerned that an early declaration of peace could lead to the collapse of the U.S. In total, the war killed over a million individuals, including some 36,000 American military personnel.

Trump says ‘very happy’ with progress in North Korea talks
Shortwave radio broadcasts from South Korea-based Free North Korea Radio, including a program featuring members of U.S. The issue of North Korea human rights is being overshadowed again by more pressing issues such as denuclearization.

North Korea transferred 55 small, flag-draped cases carrying the suspected remains of us soldiers killed in the Korean War on Friday, officials said, a first step in implementing an agreement reached in a landmark summit in June.

A spokesperson for the U.S. State Department said while "peace on the Korean Peninsula is a goal shared by the world", the global community would not accept a nuclear armed North Korea.

It's one of the promises made at the summit in Singapore last month, ... Just a few months prior, Trump and Kim engaged in a war of words, trading insults like "little rocket man" and "mentally deranged". Some critics anxious that the U.S. agreed to give up too many things in negotiations with Kim. "It will return [to South Korea] today". Trump welcomed the repatriation and thanked Kim in a tweet.

Yet progress toward actually achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is incumbent upon the establishment of a peace regime.

The U.N. Security Council has unanimously boosted sanctions on North Korea since 2006 in a bid to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, banning luxury goods said to include recreational sports equipment.

Rick Downes, who was three years old when his father Hal Downes went missing during the Korean War, flew to Pyongyang to press for the return of not just his father's remains but also those of the 5,300 American servicemen still missing in action in North Korea.
