Donald Trump Publishes Letter from North Korea’s Kim Jong

Donald Trump has hailed a "very nice note" from dictator Kim Jong Un praising the President's "energetic and extraordinary efforts" to improve relations between the U.S. and North Korea.

I firmly believe that the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach of myself and Your Excellency Mr. President aimed at opening up a future between the DPRK and the US will surely come to fruition.

Despite that, Trump hailed the July 6 letter as a "very nice note", saying "Great progress being made".

Moon, speaking in Singapore with its president and prime minister, said that talks on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula between North Korea and the United States may face hurdles and take time, his office said.

Pompeo characterized his talks with North Korean officials as productive, but the North's foreign ministry blasted the discussions, saying the visit - the third by the top US diplomat since April - had been "regrettable".

A major sticking point between the two sides has been Washington's plan for North Korea's complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.

A planned meeting Thursday between North Korean and USA officials in the Demilitarized Zone between the two Koreas to discuss the return of the remains was postponed.

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.

South Korea's Foreign Ministry said North Korean military officials were now seeking a meeting Sunday on repatriating the remains of the war dead, with Pyongyang wanting to discuss the issue with a USA military general.


Pompeo insisted the talks were making progress but as soon as he left, the North's foreign ministry berated him over his "unilateral and gangster-like" demands and for offering no constructive steps on the United States side.

Mr. Pompeo denied that the talks went poorly, telling pool reporters that progress was made "in every element of our discussions".

In the report, the USA pointed the finger at China and Russian Federation for continuing to sell refined petroleum products to North Korea.

North Korean officials did not attend a planned meeting with Americans to discuss the return of U.S. soldiers' remains, officials have said.

On June 20, Trump erroneously said 200 human remains had already "been sent back" from North Korea.

Although the letter was written less than a week ago, it's not clear where US-North Korean talks stand now. A total of 7,697 personnel remain unaccounted for from the Korean War.

"The road ahead will be hard and challenging and we know that critics will try to minimize the work that we've achieved", he said. Despite the secretary's attempt to put a positive spin on the visit, as soon as he was out of the country, North Korea criticized his "unilateral and gangster-like" demands and called the talks "regrettable".

"North Korea apparently wants a US general to appear at the table to quickly finalize the repatriation issue", the source said.

It does not, however, give any mention to the end of North Korea's nuclear program, nor the end of the country's regular human rights abuses.
