United States welcomes home possible 'forgotten war' remains

Vice President Mike Pence and US military leaders received the remains in Hawaii during a somber ceremony on Wednesday.

Additionally, if any unarmed US officials plan to return to North Korea to recover additional remains from the war, the Korean People's Army of the North will provide security, officials said.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday to thank North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for the return of suspected remains of fallen US service members, commending the "kind action" and saying he looked forward to seeing the chairman again soon. Critics say the summit has so far failed to deliver on promised steps toward denuclearisation by Pyongyang.

Kim sent a letter to Trump in mid-July in which the North Korean leader said he hoped there would be a second meeting between the two but it was unclear if that was the "nice letter" to which Trump referred on Thursday.

To work on the additional remains the team of DPAA researchers assigned to identifying the remains of Korean War missing will almost double in size from five to nine.

About 7,700 American service members are missing from the battlefields of the Korean War, including some 5,300 believed to have died north of the 38th parallel in what is now North Korea.

The audience, which was made up by Vice President Mike Pence and Korean War veterans, watched as each of the American flag draped caskets was offloaded and brought into Hanger 19.

John Byrd, chief scientist at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), said a lot of the boxes came from a village called Sinhung-ri, in the vicinity of where the Battle of Chosin Reservoir took place in November and December 1950.

But he cautioned it was unclear if that soldier's remains were among those received from North Korea.

Experts say that the painstaking identification process could take anywhere between days to decades to complete.

It also reported that North Korean officials have discussed how they plan to deceive the United States about the size of their arsenal of missiles and nuclear warheads and facilities.

Fifty-five cases of remains were airlifted from North Korea to South Korea last week and honored in a solemn ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii Wednesday.

The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that us intelligence officials suspect that North Korea is continuing to build new missiles in the same research facility that manufactured the country's ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Trump has said repeatedly the deal he reached with Kim has been positive since North Korea has maintained a freeze on nuclear and missile tests and has begun returning US war dead remains.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week that North Korea was continuing to produce fuel for nuclear bombs despite its pledge to denuclearize. He said during a Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida, that the USA was "doing well" with North Korea and noted the return of detained Americans and Pyongyang's ceasing of nuclear testing or missile tests. This comes as the US leader mentioned the letter in a tweet earlier Thursday, . The two sides remain technically at war because a peace treaty was never signed.

The ambassador added a good starting point would be a North Korea list of nuclear facilities.

It was later revealed that North Korea didn't actually hand over any remains.
