Puan delivers invitation to Kim Jong-un to attend Asian Games

The remains of 55 soldiers returned by North Korea last week are likely Americans, a USA official said Wednesday.

There is no indication that North Korea is developing new technology, but if confirmed the latest intelligence would raise doubts over the broad commitment Kim Jong-un made to denuclearisation at his summit with President Trump last month.

"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.

New indicators, including satellite images, show that North Korea could be in the midst of building new missiles, the Washington Post reported Monday, citing officials familiar with the intelligence. In that address, the North Korean leader was unequivocal about what was next, they say. Pyongyang has appeared open to discussions surrounding its status as a nuclear state following meetings with both South Korea and the United States.

Indeed, North Korean military officials did not claim that every item in each box went together, he said.

Friday's transfer of the remains coincided with the 65th anniversary of the 1953 armistice that ended fighting between North Korean and Chinese forces and South Korean and US -led forces under the U.N. Command.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged last week that North Korea was continuing "to produce fissile material".

The meeting, the second since June and held in the border village of Panmunjom, was created to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tension and halt "all hostile acts".

Besides being the US's largest trading partner, China is arguably the most important player in Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign to force Kim to give up his nuclear arsenal.

North Korea "is in the room as a member of the ASEAN regional forum among these 27 countries, so there will be discussions that are inclusive of North Korea", a senior State Department official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. And it is foolish to expect that they would do so - at the outset of talks, he said. "The nuclear program provides them with a deterrent in their mind against regime change by the United States".

The North demonstrated sharp progress in its program past year when it test-fired numerous missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test. Trump asserted last week that his administration's plan to dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons is "going very well". "These types of things tell us that there are steps that still must be taken on the road to denuclearization", Brooks said.

The recovery efforts stalled for more than a decade because of a standoff over North Korea's nuclear ambitions and a previous U.S. claim that security arrangements for its personnel working in the North were insufficient. What they're offering is: "They keep the bomb, but they stop talking about it".
