"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.

That clearly remains a point of contention with North Korea.

What was in Kim's letter?

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

In it, Mr Kim says: "I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr President".

Ahead of the summit in Singapore, North Korean officials sometimes did not turn up to meetings where their USA counterparts were expecting them, causing tension between the two negotiating partners.

"I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-U.S. relations will bring our next meeting forward".

While Pompeo said those talks were making progress, North Korea angrily accused Washington of making "gangster-like" demands for quick denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. He did not elaborate.

In the letter, Kim offered no clear reassurances that he is committed to the North's nuclear dismantlement, referring more generally to "the faithful implementation of the joint statement" agreed to at the Singapore summit.

In return, Washington agreed to halt USA military exercises in South Korea.

For decades, the USA would not talk to North Korea, which has killed foreign and U.S. citizens while maintaining one of the worst human rights regimes on earth, without a concrete path towards dismantling the country's nuclear weapons.

Roh Kyu-deok, a spokesman for South Korea's Foreign Ministry, said the South Korean government is "constantly in contact with the US counterpart" about progress of the talks on war remains repatriation, but declined to comment on any details, saying that all inquiries on the issue be directed to the USA authorities.

What's next for Secretary of State Pompeo's negotiations with North Korea?

This morning, Trump was asked if the "Rocket Man" report was true.

He left with only an agreement to set up working groups to discuss aspects of the deal, including the planned meeting on returning the remains.

It had been expected at the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom.

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

The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation.

He praised officials of the county, which is close to Mount Paektu, the spiritual home of the Korean people and claimed by Pyongyang's propaganda to be the actual birthplace of his father and predecessor Kim Jong Il.

"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.

Following the North Koreans' no-show at Thursday's meeting, the U.S. state department said the two delegations had agreed to meet on 15 July.

The United States sent a DNA sample of the South Korean soldier's remains earlier this year that confirmed him as Yun.

There are about 7,700 USA soldiers classified as missing in action in the war.

There is speculation that North Korea may also want payment for the return of the remains, our correspondent adds.

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.
