North Korea returns remains of 200 U.S. war dead

TOKYO-The foreign ministers of Japan and the Philippines on Wednesday agreed that United Nations sanctions against North Korea need to be strictly implemented for it to take meaningful action toward denuclearization.

In reality, the document he signed with Kim only reiterated North Korea's previous commitment to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The removal of anti-U.S. posters and now souvenirs in North Korea may be linked to warming U.S-DPRK relations, culminating last week in a summit between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore.

With China's steel industry powered in part by North Korean coal imports, Mr. Kim is believed to be pushing behind the scenes on Beijing to give up its support for sanctions blocking such imports.

At the end of the summit, the president announced that he would suspend the joint military exercises with South Korea that had been a major sticking point with the North. According to the Pentagon, North Korean officials have indicated in the past that they have the remains of as many as 200 US troops. He told the North Korean leader that he hopes Pyongyang and Washington "will implement well the outcomes achieved at the summit".

That alliance frees Starbucks to focus on improving its mainstay US cafe business, where traffic growth had stalled. Management also plans to reduce the number of new licensed stores in 2019 by about 100 stores, according to CNBC .

Kim visited an agricultural institute run by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences before meeting Xi on Wednesday, KCNA said, where he observed vegetables being grown inside.

The Korean War, still technically unresolved, lasted from the summer of 1950 to the summer of 1953, and resulted in the death of over 36,000 USA troops.

"My situation was one of the luckiest ones from North Korea", she said.

The site in question is the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground where North Korea has previously tested "liquid-propellant engines for its long-range ballistic missiles", according to a US official who spoke to Reuters. The latter was the site of fierce fighting, and the remains of more than 2000 USA soldiers and Marines are believed to be missing there, U.S. military officials said at the time.

The KCNA added that the two leaders exchanged views on issues of mutual concern, including the prospects for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and reached consensus on those discussed issues.

With North Korea's nuclear testing halted, for now, and August's war games off, China may be willing to cut North Korea some slack.

While Pompeo was the head of the CIA, North Korea accused the organization of trying to assassinate Kim. "I know that we're engaged on it".

Professor Su Hao of the China Foreign Affairs University said Mr Kim's visit was important especially given the concessions from Mr Trump to North Korea, including the softening of the United States stance on denuclearisation by not emphasising the need for it to be verifiable and irreversible.

North Korea typically holds mass rallies to promote anti-U.S. sentiment and also releases new stamps on June 25 marking the beginning of "Struggle Against US Imperialism Month", which lasts until July 27.

It was expected that Mr Kim would visit Beijing to brief Mr Xi on his summit with Mr Trump, which included and agreement that Pyongyang would hand over the remains of troops missing from the 1950-53 Korean War.
