The return of the remains was agreed upon between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their meeting in June. The correspondence, following up on their Singapore summit in June, came amid fresh concerns over Pyongyang's commitment to denuclearization despite a rosy picture of progress painted by Trump.

"A letter to President Trump from Chairman Kim was received on August 1". U.S. Marines also fought in the famous battle, but mainly along the reservoir's western side.

Other countries under the command of the United Nations also lost troops that are still unaccounted for, including the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.

The audience, which was made up by Vice President Mike Pence and Korean War veterans, watched as each of the American flag draped caskets was offloaded and brought into Hanger 19.

The Post also reported that North Korean officials have talked about how they plan to deceive the US about the size of their arsenal of missiles and nuclear warheads and facilities.

More than 7,700 US troops remain unaccounted for from the Korea War.

Byrd said the process to fully identify the remains, now more than 60 years old, could take anywhere from days to decades.


Sanders said a reply was being issued.

USA officials have been closely watching North Korea's willingness to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

Pence also praised Trump for having the nation's fallen war heroes "on his heart" during his summit with Kim, which was focused on denuclearization of the Korea Peninsula.

It has taken longer than Washington had hoped, but a USA state department official says the process so far has been smooth.

Speaking Friday before he attends an Asian security forum with North Korea's foreign minister, Pompeo told reporters in Singapore there was "still a ways to go before" achieving the goal of ridding the North of its nuclear weapons. He said during a Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida, that the USA was "doing well" with North Korea and noted the return of detained Americans and Pyongyang's ceasing of nuclear testing and missile tests.

Byrd cautioned that. "at this point, at least, there's no way to tell" how many more sets of remains the North Koreans might already have in their possession.

"I won't say anything about what they're doing on the ground because that would cause me to reveal intelligence sources", Hyten told reporters in a briefing. The day of the transfer coincided with the 65th anniversary of the 1953 armistice agreement that put a temporary stop to the war between the North and South.

While it's hoped that the repatriation will build momentum toward North Korea's nuclear disarmament, . many say the progress towards securing a firm commitment from Pyongyang has been slow.

The Pentagon said last week it was considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea to search for additional remains.
