North Korean Delegation Reportedly Doesn’t Show Up For Meeting With U.S

Bennie Garza | 12 July, 2018, 21:59

But while improving relations and decreasing hostility has certainly been a benefit of Trump's diplomatic push on North Korea, it's been a means to the end of denuclearization.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (4th R) and President Donald Trump (3rd L) attend a working lunch with their respective delegations at their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island, June 12, 2018, in Singapore. Reports say North Korea is now asking for higher-level talks for Sunday.

"Rocket Man" is a nickname Trump used to mock Kim a year ago when the two traded insults over North Korea's testing of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles targeted at the US.

His top deputy, who took the meeting in Kim's absence, said his boss was out of town without revealing what was more important than a sit-down with the top USA diplomat.

According to President Trump, returning the remains of USA troops was agreed upon during the Singapore summit.

In the meeting at the Korean Peninsula's demilitarized zone, the two sides had been expected to discuss the return of US troops' remains from the 1950-53 Korean War - an arrangement that the State Department had announced after Secretary Michael R. Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang last weekend.

Pyongyang has reportedly asked the United Nations Command Armistice Commission to upgrade the talks to a higher level to include a US general, South Korea's foreign ministry said.

Several South Korean outlets also confirmed the news, citing officials in and around Panmunjom, the "peace village" in the DMZ typically used for such meetings.

The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation. "It is likely that military generals from the US and North Korea will take part in the meeting". The discussions about returning Americans soldiers killed nearly 70 years ago was perhaps the most tangible outcome from Pompeo's trip, which analysts expected would at least secure the release of some remains.

It would be the first such repatriation in more than a decade after a joint search effort was halted amid rising tensions over the North's nuclear weapons program.

North Korea is not messing around.

Now, however, the mood in Pyongyang appears to be more conciliatory, with Kim keen for another meeting with Trump.

South Korea's urbanisation is one reason why more than a 1000 American service members are unaccounted for, said McKeague.

But Trump tweeted Monday that he has "confidence" that Kim would honour the denuclearisation "contract" they signed at the summit and accused China - the isolated North's powerful neighbour and ally - of seeking to undermine the deal.
