US moves 100 coffins to Korean border to collect 1950s war remains

Poll reveals what voters think about Trump Kim summit

As skeptics pointed out, all that the North has so far done is to promise "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", which implies a demand for corresponding actions from the U.S. and the South, such as the withdrawal of the US' nuclear umbrella.

The Trump administration is expecting North Korea to return up to 200 sets of remains believed to be U.S. service members who died during the Korean War, four administration officials said earlier this week.

"There could be additional measures should North Korea follow suit with productive cooperation".

One does not need a calculation of the exponential exposure or advertising value to be convinced that Singapore has benefited from facilitating the Trump-Kim summit (Singapore may have gained over $700m in exposure as host: Analyst; June 14).

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

United States President Donald Trump on Friday extended the sanctions on North Korea for a year, saying Pyongyang posed an "unusual and extraordinary" threat by its nuclear arsenal.

After his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12, Trump had said that sanctions would not be lifted on Pyongyang until further progress was made on its denuclearisation. The official, who wasn't authorized to discuss the issue publicly and spoke only on condition of anonymity, would not answer questions about whether the site was already being destroyed, but said that as negotiations moved forward, the administration would continue to monitor the area where North Korea tested liquid propellant engines for long-range ballistic missiles. While the USA military preparations suggest that the repatriation of war remains could be imminent, it remains unclear when and how it would occur.

Melania 'deliberatelty' wore 'I don't care' jacket to meet child migrants
President Donald Trump has since tweeted about the jacket in question, saying it was directed at " the Fake News Media ". Melania wore the jacket for her return trip even after she received backlash from the public.

There had been contact with North Korean officials since the summit, the US State Department said.

Pompeo said USA allies and North Korea's neighbour and ally China were supportive of the U.S. policy of maintaining sanctions on Pyongyang until its denuclearisation was complete.

He dismissed it as "completely false" and said plans were "still preliminary". The drills help keep US forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints. "I wouldn't expect that at this point". Nationalities will be determined when the remains are tested in the US.

Abraham Denmark of the Wilson Center warned a congressional hearing: "Considering North Korea's repeated history of violating past agreements, there is little reason to trust them this time".

On June 19, United States and S Korea announced their decision to suspend Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise (joint military exercise).

The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the Korean War, in which China fought on North Korea's side and which ended in 1953 with an armistice and no peace treaty.

The visit comes as a dispute over the large trade imbalance between China and the USA has been escalating, straining ties between the world's two largest economies and moving them closer to a potential trade war. China does not wish to fight a trade war but is not scared of one. "There will be a big question mark over whether China and USA will continue this cooperation".
