  • North Korea to hand over US troops remains ‘in next few days’ – report

CNN describes the "Mass Games" as a "grandiose, flamboyant blend of artistry and North Korean propaganda" that takes more than 100,000 performers to pull off. While the details of the process are so far unknown, United States officials say they expect "a sizable number" of remains to be handed over first to the UN Command stationed in South Korea and then to the US.

About 7,700 U.S. military personnel remain unaccounted from the 1950-1953 Korean War, U.S. military data show. In return Trump ordered the suspension of military exercises with South Korea, a longstanding demand of the Pyongyang regime.

While Washington insists there will be no sanctions relief until North Korea denuclearizes completely, China may be willing to work with Kim well before that.

The North Korean leader, who was greeted by a military honour guard and cheering children at the Great Hall of the People Tuesday, said he valued the "recently strengthened strategic cooperation" between the two countries, according to North Korea's official KCNA news agency.

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 Danes said before the game that they were keen on getting back to the free-flowing football that has characterised the team. Andrew Nabbout suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder in what is likely to be a heartbreaking end to his World Cup campaign.

He added that, "it's the very front end of a process".

'The detailed negotiations have not begun.

USA defence secretary James Mattis admitted today that he is not aware of North Korea taking any steps towards denuclearisation. Prior to the Singapore summit, Trump had complained that the North Koreans' attitude changed after Kim and Xi met in Dalian.

And when she saw President Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore just last week, she immediately distrusted the North Korean dictator.

The U.S. and South Korea also suspended a major joint military exercise that was planned for August in what was seen as a major victory for North Korea and its chief allies, China and Russian Federation.

In a news conference following the summit, Trump said North Korea had agreed to return the remains of U.S. soldiers.

Koryo Tours' Simon Cockerell said that given how institutionally anti-American the DPRK is, the removal of anti-U.S. propaganda "may be the start of a real softening of rhetoric". "I expect they will talk about the path going forward and where priorities should lie".

Fifty percent of voters, however, said they did not think the summit would lead to peace between the two nations, and seven out of 10 disagreed with Trump's June 13 claim that North Korea was "no longer a nuclear threat", the poll found.

Beard confirmed the continued absence of these posters, saying: "All the usual spots where I saw the anti-American posters along Kim Il Sung Square have been removed".

Japan's capital of Tokyo held its first evacuation drill in January and smaller Japanese towns and villages have conducted similar exercises as North Korea pushed ahead with its missile and nuclear weapons programs. "North Korea has already finished developing (the) Baekdu Engine, so there would be no problem running ICBM missile programs even if they close down the Sohae site".
