KIM SPEAKS: Kim Jong Un Praises 'EXTRAORDINARY' Trump in New Letter

  • U.S. President Trump and North Korea's Kim walk together before their working lunch during their summit in Singapore

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had pledged to recover more American remains when they met in Singapore on June 12.

The South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, also downplayed the North Koreans' antics, stating it was all part of Pyongyang's "strategy" toward extracting more concessions from the United States.

"He's realized he can humiliate and ignore the U.S.as long as he flatters the president", Mount said.

This latest incident comes shortly after Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang resulted in North Korea accusing Pompeo of making a "unilateral and gangster-like demand for nuclearization".

But Kim apparently changed his mind after both Moon and Trump brought up the abduction issue in their respective talks, opting to see whether Japan would be willing accept its probe findings.

The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation. Although Pompeo insisted progress continued to be made, North Korea accused the USA of making "gangster-like" demands.

An estimated 30,000 U.S. soldiers died in the 1950-53 Korean war.


Mr Trump describes the letter as a "very nice note" and says, "Great progress being made!". Roughly 5,300 U.S. troops presumed to have been killed in the Korean war are unaccounted for. Representatives of the two countries had been poised to meet in Panmunjom, which is regarded as the truce village on the inter-Korean border.

Pompeo, speaking Wednesday to reporters as he arrived in Brussels for a NATO summit with President Donald Trump, said that change was up to North Koreans.

Pompeo was in Pyongyang from Friday to Saturday to try to flesh out a bare bones denuclearisation deal made during last month's historic summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump.

But in stark contrast, Pyongyang's take was overwhelmingly negative, with the North warning that the future of the peace process was being jeopardized by "unilateral and gangster-like" USA demands for its nuclear disarmament.

One problem - no North Korean officials showed up, The New York Times reported.

Pompeo underscored the importance he places on the issue earlier this week when he tweeted that North Korea had committed to repatriating remains. "Great progress being made".

Speaking to Fox News about the possibility of a Kim visit to the White House, Trump said last month that such a visit "could happen", and added that he and Kim "had good chemistry".
