Majority Approve of Trump's North Korea Effort

Majority Approve of Trump's North Korea Effort

So far the remains of 334 servicemen have been identified from the bones and personal effects handed over by Pyongyang, and about 5,000 more are thought to be scattered around North Korean territory. On Wednesday, on route to Moscow, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in told reporters that the lifting of United Nations sanctions could pave the way for investment in railroads, natural gas and electricity.

About 7,700 U.S. military personnel remain unaccounted from the 1950-1953 Korean War, U.S. military data show.

North Korea has not publicly confirmed that Kim made such a promise.

The leader's visit came a week after his historic summit with US President Donald Trump - during which North Korea agreed to work towards denuclearisation.

North Korea could start the process of handing over the remains of troops, including Americans, missing from the Korean War within the next few days, two USA officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

Even if the USA is able to begin recovering more remains from North Korea, many more years of work will be needed to identify numerous United States troops who died there, said Sarah Wagner, an anthropologist with George Washington University, who has worked on military repatriation issues. The detailed negotiations have not begun.

United States defence secretary James Mattis admitted today that he is not aware of North Korea taking any steps towards denuclearisation.

That Kim met with both Secretary of State and President Trump, to whom he delivered a letter from the North Korean chairman.

While an agreement to complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization (CVID) between American and North Korean officials was nothing but a pipe dream, there was hope that President Donald Trump would be able to extract significant commitments from Kim Jong-un in return for simply agreeing to meet him.

But despite the initial steps, Mattis said Wednesday he was "not aware" of any steps taken by Kim to denuclearize.

Also, Pompeo dropped heavy hints in July 2017, right after North Korea began testing missiles that could hit the USA, that he'd like to separate Kim from power.

North Korea released new propaganda posters online last month, promoting the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration and recent improved inter-Korean relations, though Beard said he did not spot these on display Pyongyang and that these were not on sale in the souvenir shops.

"They've already sent back or are in the process of sending back the remains of our great heroes who died in North Korea during the war". "I expect they will talk about the path going forward and where priorities should lie".

Some lawmakers and experts said the North received a major concession - reversing decades of US military posture in the region, with joint exercises at the heart of readiness efforts against the rogue regime - while the United States seemingly receiving nothing in return. "I think it's clear this a Kim-win, but this is just the first inning".

China also appears to be working hard not to be marginalized in the fast-paced nuclear diplomacy surrounding the Korean Peninsula by bringing the North closer to its side after years of chilled relations over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile provocations.
