U.S., North Korea to meet on Sunday over war remains

Trump: Kim Will Get 'Rocket Man' CD Later, Plus Surprise 'Little Gift'

A spokesman for U.S. Forces Korea referred questions Thursday to the Department of Defense in Washington.

The remains of some USA soldiers were last returned in 2007, when then-New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson visited Pyongyang.

"These sales and any other transfer must immediately stop since the United States believes the DPRK has breached the. refined petroleum products quota for 2018", reads the USA report to the UN that AFP has seen.

But North Korea's delegation failed show up to a scheduled meeting on Thursdayat the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone between the two Koreas.

"Mid-day, on July the 12th, they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday, July 15", Nauert said in a statement, adding "We'll be ready".

"Look, people are going to make stray comments after meetings", Pompeo said. In the report, the USA pointed the finger at China and Russian Federation for continuing to sell refined petroleum products to North Korea.

The goal of Pompeo's latest trip to Pyongyang was to negotiate the details of the nuclear agreement Trump signed along with Kim.

In the Twitter post, Trump hailed the letter, saying, "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea. Great progress being made!". Trump tweeted accompanying a Korean and English version of the note from Kim.

Trump, who has criticized China for trade imbalances and unfair practices, imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese imports that went into effect on July 6.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un walk together before their working lunch during their summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore June 12, 2018.

The fact that Kim Jong Un's letter says Trump took "energetic and extraordinary" efforts, it's most telling that Un admits only to taking "future process of taking practical actions", but says nothing of what was achieved during the Trump-Kim Summit.

Their meeting - the first between a sitting U.S. president and North Korea, led to claims that the latter would work towards dumping its nuclear weapons. But he also acknowledged that a lot of work remained to be done, including on the issue of setting a timeline for denuclearization.

A major sticking point between the two sides has been Washington's plan for North Korea's complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.

North Korea watchers downplayed the significance of the letter.

The BBC reported speculation that North Korea may want payment for the return of the remains.

North Korean media called the US's negotiating stance "regrettable", "gangster-like", and said the "results of the talks are extremely worrisome" just after Pompeo's visit.

Trump has repeatedly voiced optimism that Kim will dismantle the regime's nuclear weapons program despite recent news reports that North Korea continues to expand its nuclear facilities. They signed a joint statement reaffirming North Korea's commitment to giving up nuclear weapons.
