Presumed US war remains begin journey home from South Korea

24 2018 South Korean soldiers disembark from a passenger ferry at Yeonpyeong island near the 'northern limit line' sea boundary with North Korea.  To go with SKorea-NKorea-diplomacy-politics

Citing unnamed officials familiar with the intelligence, the U.S. daily said that newly obtained evidence, including satellite photos taken in recent weeks, suggests that North Koreans were working on at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled ICBMs at a large research facility in Sanumdong on the outskirts of Pyongyang. The Post cited "intelligence gathered by US agencies" as evidence that North Korean officials planned to try to fool the U.S.by making a show out of destroying 20 nuclear warheads while they kept dozens.

However, CNN also reported last week that, according to an official with close knowledge of North Korea's position on the matter, continued negotiations between the United States and North Korea hinge on Washington's willingness to make a "bold move" and agree to a peace treaty with Pyongyang.

The handing over the remains was part of a deal struck earlier this year between US President Donald Tump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. It is unclear whether Kim will follow through on any of those promises as the country's officials have discussed plans to deceive Washington about their unclear arsenal, according to the Post.

US officials also are eager to resume searches in North Korea for more remains, an effort that has been stalled for more than a decade due to rising nuclear tensions.

To show that he wasn't even "remotely kidding" about this, Chovanec proceeded to post photos he'd taken while in North Korea that depicted the late leader Kim Jong-Il walking among his people. "New images just today show that North Korea has begun the process of dismantling a key missile site, and we appreciate that", Trump said, an apparent reference to images of the Sohae Satellite Launching Station published Monday by the prominent monitoring group 38 North.

In late June, it was reported that United States intelligence agencies believe North Korea had upped uranium production in recent months and that North Korean officials were seeking to deceive the U.S. in order to extract more concessions in talks.

The North Koreans "never agreed to give up their nuclear program", said Ken Gause, a North Korea expert at the Center for Naval Analysis.

Numerous fallen service members died in North Korea and were buried by their comrades where they fell.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chopra will play the "love interest" of Pratt's character Duncan, but there are no specifics. The mega-budget movie is now in pre-production and Universal is eyeing a June 28, 2019 release, reports THR.

Pompeo said there was "an terrible long way to go" before North Korea could no longer be viewed as a nuclear threat.

Pence on Wednesday met with Adm. Phil Davidson at the headquarters of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii.

It is possible, the official said, that any new missiles the North is building may be for further testing of such vehicles and of more accurate guidance systems.

North Korea got respect, trade, and weapons, and now they appear to be going on as if Singapore put no restrictions on them.

The North demonstrated sharp progress in its program a year ago when it test-fired numerous missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.

North Korea is also reportedly still secretly operating the Kangson uranium-enrichment facility.

The reports about new missile construction come after recent revelations about a suspected uranium enrichment facility, called Kangson, that North Korea is operating in secret.

Between 1990 and 2005 229 sets of remains from the North were repatriated, but those operations were suspended when ties worsened over Pyongyang's banned nuclear weapons programme.
