Trump tweets 'very nice' letter from North Korea's Kim

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

In his letter, which was written 24 days after the June 12 summit in Singapore, Kim addressed Mr Trump as "Your Excellency Mr President".

Some remains have been returned to the USA over the years, but very few since recovery efforts were mostly halted in 2005 as U.S.

The source said that Kim did not see any need to hold dialogue with Japan before his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April, instead favoring relations with the United States, China and Russian Federation.

After U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's meeting with North Korean officials in Pyongyang last week, he stated the U.S. and North Korea would hold working-level talks on repatriating the remains, July 12.

"This step will build trust & confidence btw US & DPRK", he tweeted on Monday, using the acronym for North Korea's official name.

The letter made no mention of North Korea's plans to denuclearize.

The agreement on the return of remains of Americans believed to have been lost on the North Korean side of the border during the 1950-53 war, "including the immediate repatriation of those already identified", was the only concrete commitment on the four-point summit declaration.

North Korea reportedly has the remains of about 5,300 United States soldiers who were killed during the Korean War, which ended with an armistice in 1953.

Mr Trump said the letter from Mr Kim (dated 6 July), was "a very nice note".

"We have to see the USA defense ministry's response, but the UNC reportedly gave a positive signal to North Korea, so there is a good chance of the talks taking place on Sunday", the source said.

Kim Jong Un put potatoes ahead of Mike Pompeo during a U.S. visit to agree denuclearisation details, state media has suggested.

Trump shared the letters on social media, one written in Korean and the other a translation.

Joint U.S. -North Korean military search teams recovered 229 sets of American remains from North Korea between 1996 and 2005. "Great progress being made", Trump said in a tweet that also included a copy of the correspondence from Kim.

But following the meeting, North Korea released a statement calling the meeting "regrettable" and accusing the USA of using "gangster-like" tactics to push it towards nuclear disarmament.

There was no call or explanation from North Korean officials on why they skipped the meeting.

KCNA did not say when the trip was made, but Kim Yong Chol, Kim's powerful right-hand man, told a visiting Seoul official last week that the leader was away for a trip to a "local region".
