In a joint statement at last week's summit, Kim pledged to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for US security guarantees. Cases of co-mingled remains are the most hard because they require identifying which skeletal fragments belong to the same person, said Luis Fondebrider, president of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, a non-governmental group that applies forensic science to investigate human rights violations.

Richard Downes, executive director of the Coalition of Families of Korean & Cold War POW/MIAs, said last week that he had been told the North may have the remains of more than 200 American service members that were likely recovered from land during farming or construction and could be easily returned.

Last week, after his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump made the surprise announcement that the United States would halt "war games" with its South Korean security ally - without making clear when the freeze would begin.

It could signal North Korea is willing to include a moratorium on satellite launches in addition to their missile and nuclear tests, which has been a point of contention in past agreements and derailed negotiations in the past. "Detailed negotiations have not begun", he said.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, speculated Trump might have been referring to explosions last month that North Korea said were to destroy tunnels at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site and the dismantling of a medium-range ballistic missile test stand at Iha-ri, also in May. "I wouldn't expect that at this point".


Trump, who has been leading an worldwide drive to press North Korea to abandon development of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States, told reporters after the June 12 summit that Kim had pledged to dismantle one of his missile installations.

This was stated in a joint document signed by Mr Trump and Mr Kim. U.S. officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible. Glaser said it was predictable Xi would want to be briefed by Kim directly about the North Korean leader's talks with Trump.

"Continue to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the US", Trump wrote in the declaration.

Following North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's recent visit to China, Beijing plans to ease sanctions on Pyongyang in order to boost bilateral economic cooperation.

Government and military officials in South Korea said Friday that the return of the remains is expected to take a significant amount of time given how many there are and that various ideas about the method of repatriation are being mulled.
