Trump shares 'very nice note' from Kim Jong Un

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un agreed to the "immediate repatriation" of remains that had already been identified (between 200 and 250 soldiers) during a June 12 meeting with President Donald Trump in Singapore.

Despite that, Trump hailed the July 6 letter as a "very nice note", saying "Great progress being made".

Kim continued by expressing confidence that "the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach" to bring about a new future between the US and North Korea would "come to fruition".

Mr. Kim did not mention any commitments to the denuclearization process, generally commenting on wanting to improve relations between the two nations.

Kim did not meet with Pompeo during his visit this month, viewed widely by foreign affairs analysts as an intentional slight since the two had met twice previously in Pyongyang.

The President released the letter in Korean with an English translation.

The most contrarian nugget of Carlin's analysis was his assertion that the statement, and North Korean domestic media's coverage of the visit, suggests progress was made.

Wimbledon Keeps a Stiff Upper Lip as Football Fever Grips England
There had been talk of the World Cup final being shown on the big screen on Henman Hill at Wimbledon but that has been ruled out. The final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

"The North Koreans were just messing around, not serious about moving forward", the source told CNN's Michelle Kosinski, adding that Pompeo had been promised a meeting with Kim, and the fact that it failed to materialize sent a big message.

Pompeo traveled to the North last week to try to iron out the details amid criticism that the USA administration had already given up too much, too soon and was being played.

"I am writing to ask whether the public pronouncements from this administration regarding North Korea align with the intelligence community's assessments on Kim Jong Un's willingness to make concessions on verifiable denuclearization", Warner wrote to Coats. "We had anticipated the USA side would come with a constructive idea, thinking we would take something in return", a foreign ministry official said in a statement.

Pompeo had said a Pentagon team would meet with the North's officials on or around Thursday at the inter-Korea border to discuss the repatriation.

The meeting served as the highest-level platform for ongoing, unprecedented peace talks between the Cold War-era foes.

"Repatriation of USA remains from North Korea will be important not just to American families, but to building trust between the US and North Korea as well", Pompeo said earlier this week.
