North Korea constructing new intercontinental ballistic missiles

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the commander of U.S. forces in Asia, Adm. Phil Davidson, were expected to speak at a ceremony marking the arrival of the remains on U.S. soil and the beginning of a long process to identify the bones. Between 1990 and 1994, North Korea returned 208 containers to the us with remains.

"I don't have any announcement today but it's natural to get a lot of business done. but we are not there for any announcements", the official said.

That's where a DNA verification process is going to be conducted.

US spy satellites have detected renewed activity at the North Korean factory that produced the country's first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States, a senior USA official said yesterday, in the midst of talks to compel Pyongyang to give up its nuclear arms. They set the caskets gently on risers lined up inside the hangar as Mr Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart. The lab is the largest and most diverse skeletal identification laboratory in the world and is staffed by more than 30 anthropologists, archaeologists and forensic odonatologists, United Nations Command release.

The return of the presumed remains is something President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed to during their summit back in June.

The Korean War remains were formally repatriated to US soil Wednesday.

An unidentified USA defense official, however, said there was only one set of military identification tags, known as dog tags, with the remains.

The repatriation is a breakthrough in a long-stalled US effort to obtain war remains from North Korea.

The Koch network campaigned heavily for passage of tax cuts that Trump signed into law a year ago and praised his judicial picks. Officials said the meeting this weekend is the largest summer gathering of like-minded donors, with 135 first-time participants.

The Washington Post says United States spy agencies are seeing signs that North Korea is producing new intercontinental ballistic missiles at a plant on the outskirts of Pyongyang. "Hope that those who are lost will yet be found. Hope that after so many years of questions, they will have closure".

Generals from the two Koreas exchanged views on a possible cut in firearms and personnel to "demilitarize" the heavily fortified demilitarised zone (DMZ), as well as joint excavation within the area of the remains of soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War. "Again, this is just a great first step in building some confidence and building a relationship".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week that North Korea was continuing to produce fuel for nuclear bombs despite its pledge to denuclearize. She said that no payment had been made to North Korea for the remains. Trump later suspended annual military drills with South Korea which North Korea had long called an invasion rehearsal.

The vice president spoke for a few minutes before the ceremony began, calling it "tangible progress in our efforts to achieve peace on the Korean Peninsula".

7,699 Americans are still listed as missing from the Korean War.

"Major media reporting on what is alleged to be intelligence and photographic evidence that North Korea intends to deceive the United States in negotiations on denuclearization has been extraordinarily misleading", Porter wrotes.

John Byrd, director of analysis for the US Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, told reporters at Osan that the family of the soldier identified by the dog tag had been notified.
