Southforward.com – US Secretary of State (US) ensures that his country will soon receive the bodies of US soldiers in Korean war victims from North Korea (North Korea).
Quoted from Reuters on Wednesday (18/07/2018), This was disclosed Pompeo after last month visited the country and talked about it directly.
Repatriation of the bodies of the dead US soldiers will occur in the coming weeks from North Korea.
Pompeo said both sides showed progress on a key issue despite North Korea accusing its delegates of making demands like gangsters related to denuclearization.
South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that US and North Korean officials had met on the inter-Korean border on Sunday to discuss the return of American troops.
The fate of repatriation of the remains of hundreds of US troops from North Korea has become an old problem between the two countries, since the Korean War was stopped by a cease-fire in 1953.
According to the US Department of Defense, nearly 8,000 American troops taking part in the war are still unknown.
