Donald Trump thanks Kim Jong Un for keeping word on war remains

North Korea Might Be Working On New ICBMs

The US military believes the bones being returned are those of US servicemen and potentially servicemen from other United Nations member countries - including Britain - who fought alongside them on behalf of South Korea during the war.

Many US families have been waiting on closure for decades, not knowing what became of their loved ones.

Pence, the son of a decorated Korean War veteran, called the returns a "historic occasion" and an accomplishment for President Donald Trump, "whose leadership and compassion brought this day about". "Today, our boys are coming home", Pence said.

The pledge to return the remains of U.S. soldiers was made during a landmark summit between the leaders in June in Singapore, where North Korea committed to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. "Our nation has worked tirelessly to keep our sacred promise to leave no man behind".

"But today, we prove these heroes were never forgotten".

He acknowledged "lots of challenges" with Turkey, but said Washington and Ankara had been able to work closely and well together. Brunson has ties to a Turkish preacher now living in exile in the USA whom Ankara accuses of fomenting the coup.

USA spy agencies suspect that North Korea is building new missiles in the same research facility that manufactured the country's ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States, according to a recent report by The Washington Post, which cited officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to describe classified intelligence.

The repatriation is a breakthrough in a long-stalled U.S. effort to obtain war remains from North Korea, with the return part of an agreement reached during a June summit between USA president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"Other than a single dog tag, the Korean People's Army did not provide further information on where they recovered the remains or any other information", the official said.

It was the first repatriation of remains since 2005.

The Korean War began on June 25, 1950, and lasted until an armistice was reached on July 27, 1953. The troops carefully set each box on risers inside a hangar as Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart.

Judge Grants Temporary Restraining Order Against Making 3-D Guns
Some gun rights groups say the technology is expensive, the guns are unreliable and the threat is being overblown. Wilson sued in 2015 , claiming the order infringed his constitutional rights.

It's taken decades for the possibly American remains to be returned.

Remains handed over by North Korea to the United States last week were confirmed to be human and are likely to be American soldiers, officials said on Wednesday. Maharani also discussed North and South Korea relations during the visit, as well as regional issues and the performance of Indonesia's police in countering militancy. It's also troubling that North Korea has apparently been allowed to dodge verification at both Punggye-ri and Sohae.

John Byrd, director of analysis for the US Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, told reporters at Osan that the family of the soldier identified by the dog tag had been notified.

But forensics experts say that identifying the remains may take years, according to a report by New York Magazine on Wednesday.

Gail Embery first found out when she was about 10 years old that her father, Sergeant Coleman Edwards, had gone missing in Korea.

He said the event was a "solemn reminder that our work is not complete until all have been accounted for, no matter how long it takes to do so". "So, to be able to be with them and the sacrifice their families have made to defend our freedom, to defend the freedom of South Korea, just very humbled". There are 9,569 United Nations Command personnel who remain unaccounted for from the Korean War, including 7,699 Americans.
