North Korean officials snub meeting on USA soldiers' remains

North Korean officials snub meeting on USA soldiers' remains

The US did not say which countries were illicitly providing Pyongyang with the products.

In December the 15-member Security Council capped refined petroleum product exports to North Korea at 500,000 barrels a year.

In another sign that relations have strained since Kim sent the letter, CNN reported that North Korean officials failed to show up for a meeting with their us counterparts in the demilitarized zone Thursday.

What was in Kim's letter?

On Thursday, after he arrived in Britain following the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump disclosed that he had received a letter from Kim Jong-un.

"I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-U.S. relations will bring our next meeting forward". "Great progress being made". He did not elaborate.

The fact that North Korea seem to be dragging its feet on this issue fuels already growing doubts among President Trump's critics about whether the Singapore summit was a success or simply a publicity stunt for Mr Kim, the BBC's Cindy Sui in Seoul reports. We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea.

After Pompeo's talks with North Korean officials last week attempting to nail down details of how and when Pyongyang plans to carry out Kim's pledge to denuclearize the Korean peninsula, North Korea called the talks "regrettable" and said the USA demands were "gangster-like".

Pompeo ignored a question about the apparent snub when asked by reporters traveling with him in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday.

Since the summit in Singapore, there has been increasing scrutiny of the agreement reached by Trump and Kim, with some experts suggesting that North Korea did not really intend to give up its nuclear weapons.

Mr. Trump said he received "a very nice note" from Mr. Kim on Twitter.

What about the planned repatriation meeting?

Representatives of the two countries had been poised to meet in Panmunjom, which is regarded as the truce village on the inter-Korean border.

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

Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim met for the first time in Singapore to discuss the relations between their nations and potential denuclearization June 12. In its statement Saturday, the North envisaged "simultaneous" steps by the two sides and a declaration on ending the 1950-53 Korean War, for which a peace treaty was never signed. The talks Sunday are expected to involve officials from the Pentagon and the U.N. Command, which commanded USA -led allied forces during the war and is involved in maintaining the armistice that ended the fighting in 1953.
