Vice President, Honor Guards Welcome Korean War Fallen Back to American Soil

Several U.S. officials and private analysts said the continued activity inside North Korea's weapons complex is not surprising, given that Kim made no public promise at the summit to halt work at the scores of nuclear and missiles facilities scattered around the country.

United Nations Honor Guard members carry boxes believed to contain the remains of US servicemen killed during the Korean War during return ceremony at Osan Air Base, in Pyeontaek, South Korea, Friday, July 27, 2018.

The defense official said, "It could take months, or even years to identify them". "Other U.S. service members were captured and placed in prisoner-of-war camps, where many succumbed to starvation, exposure, and torture".

More than 35,000 Americans were killed on the Korean peninsula during the 1950-1953 war, with 7,700 of these U.S. troops still listed as missing in action - majority in North Korea.

Pence, the son of a decorated Korean War veteran, called the returns a "historic occasion" and an accomplishment for President Donald Trump, "whose leadership and compassion brought this day about".

Kim "put it in black and white: the North Koreans are going to mass produce missiles and nuclear weapons".

The repatriation is a breakthrough in a long-stalled USA effort to obtain war remains from North Korea.

"The remains received from North Korea are being handled with the utmost care and respect by professional historians, forensic scientists, uniformed personnel and government officials", the US-led UN Command said in a statement.

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence is flying to Hawaii on Wednesday to receive 55 boxes of bones recently handed over by North Korea.

North Korea is continuing to build new missiles, according to US officials cited by the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported Monday that USA intelligence agencies have obtained evidence indicating that North Korea is continuing to build long-range missiles.

"It suggests that this is a process", she told Fox News of United States efforts to denuclearize North Korea.

"Some of the cringe-worthy Kim Jong-il paintings I saw in North Korea, not unlike the adulatory Trump propaganda portraits I've seen circulating lately", he explains.

The Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's official party newspaper, accused Seoul of "wasting time" waiting for sanctions to be lifted only after denuclearization is completed, without "taking a single action" on its own.

Troops from 16 other nations also fought alongside the Americans under a U.N. flag during the Korean War, and diplomats and officials from all those countries placed wreaths at the ceremony.

These are not the first reports that North Korea may be continuing its weapons programme, casting doubt on the real impact of the summit in Singapore. But since then, North Korea has made few tangible moves signaling an intention to disarm.
