U.S., North Korea to resume search for remains from Korean War

US-N. Korea Set for Working-level Talks on Repatriation of Soldiers' Remains

The US and North Korea will jointly engage in the searches for the yet-to-be-located service members' remains, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert confirmed; she could not say when those would begin.

The repatriation of U.S. remains was one of the agreements reached during an unprecedented summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June in Singapore.

The messaging was somewhat of a theme over the weekend with two other North Korean outlets - DPRK Today and Uriminzokkiri - filing similar reports criticizing USA media for raising doubts about the North's intention to fulfill its commitment for denuclearization.

North Korea and the United States conducted joint operations to recover the remains of USA soldiers from 1996 to 2005 but stopped when their relations soured as Pyongyang accelerated its nuclear program.

It was unclear if Trump had broached the issue with Kim during their meeting, but the resulting joint statement did not mention human rights.

President Trump then turned to criticizing media outlets for not focusing on the positive results of talks between the US and North Korea, "Who knows how it will all turn out in the end, but why isn't the Fake News talking about these wonderful facts?"

South Korea's Yonhap news agency, citing South Korean government and USA military sources, said the negotiations had begun at 0100 GMT at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas.

Bets for upcoming Southampton vs Arsenal fight
Neither Arsene Wenger nor his players could afford themselves to lose another match if they still want to be in the top four. Arsenal is still keeping the dream to be qualified in Champions League after the victory over Manchester on Sunday.

Air Force Maj. Gen. Michael Minihan, chief of staff for the United Nations Command, led the U.S. delegation, while North Korea sent a group helmed by a two-star general, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

While Arirang-Meari did not mention any media reports by name, since June 12, multiple outlets have reported on developments with regard to North Korea's WMD programs that have raised questions about the DPRK's intentions.

The U.S. government estimates that the North Korean government has about 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners in detention.

Trump's comments on Kim followed his tweet Thursday that he received "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea".

US and South Korean officials say they are ready to help North Korea revive its economy if it gives up its nuclear programme. Since then, the North Koreans and the US have struggled to make progress. Jong Un said, "I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-US relations will bring our next meeting forward".

At the Orangchon power station, which is only 70% complete following delays, Kim said he was "so appalled as to be left speechless", according to the North's official news agency KCNA.

"We will be ready", she said.
