Trump tweets out letter he got from Kim Jong Un

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

The development is likely to fuel growing skepticism over North Korea's commitment to a complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula as promised during last month's meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore. USA intelligence analysts said in the wake of the summit that Pyongyang is working to hide key elements of its program, including the number of weapons it maintains and secret production facilities.

The secretary of state did not meet Kim as he had on his previous two trips to Pyongyang this year, and after his departure, the North's foreign ministry accused the US of making "gangster-like" demands that it unilaterally give up its nuclear weapons.

But Kim apparently changed his mind after both Moon and Trump brought up the abduction issue in their respective talks, opting to see whether Japan would be willing accept its probe findings.

The US military also announced that 100 wooden coffins had been dispatch to Panmunjom to receive the remains, although repatriation has yet to take place.

US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said North Korea has now offered to meet the delegation on Sunday.

He also agreed to repatriate remains of United States troops who died during the Korean War six decades ago.

That number includes 7,702 who are missing in action, with an estimated 5,300 believed to have been lost in the North, according to the Hawaii-based DPAA, which oversees the effort.

Last month, Trump told a Republican convention in Las Vegas that North Korea had "already sent back, or are in the process of sending back" the remains of 200 USA or allied service members following his summit with Kim.

In the translated letter, dated July 6, Mr. Kim praised his relationship with Mr. Trump and said the Singapore summit was "indeed the start of a meaningful journey".

Earlier Thursday, a diplomatic source here said the US and North Korea were still in talks to set a date for working-level dialogue over the repatriation of remains of American troops.

Sanctions imposed by the United Nations in December placed a cap on refined oil exports to North Korea at 500,000 barrels annually. "Great progress being made".

USA officials and experts have said the shift in attitude was to be expected as the North Koreans are known for brinkmanship and trying to up the ante ahead of tough negotiations over their nuclear missile program.

"We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back", Trump said at a Minnesota rally last month.
