North Korea returns remains of soldiers missing since Korean War

United Nations honour guards carry boxes containing remains believed to be from American servicemen killed during the Korean War after their arrival from North Korea at Osan Air Base

Technically, the war still continues, as no formal peace declaration was signed. But thousands of USA troops killed in major battles in North Korea have not been returned because the war was never formally concluded with a peace treaty and because North Korea and the United States lack diplomatic ties.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump shake hands as they meet for the first time.

"North Korea recently took two truckloads of wooden boxes to be used for the remains repatriation". At a press conference, Trump said he wanted to stop USA military exercises with South Korea and eventually withdraw United States troops - something Pyongyang has been demanding for years.

"It was a successful mission following extensive coordination", UN Command and U.S. Forces Korea commander Gen. Vincent Brooks said in the statement.

There are thousands of Americans who remain unaccounted for after the war, which began when the North invaded the South in 1950.

At a July 25 Senate Foreign Relations hearing, in response to Democratic Sen.

Delegates from the participating countries in the Korean War salute coffins of six us soldiers, draped in the flag of the United Nations, during a tentative repatriation ceremony at a USA military base in Seoul on April 12, 2007.

In anticipation of the anniversary of the armistice, North Korean state media on Thursday published a piece honoring Korean War veterans, highlighting a visit by communist officials to the residences of living veterans "who performed immortal feats in the sacred war for defending the country and the grand drive for socialist construction".

Yet progress toward actually achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is incumbent upon the establishment of a peace regime. "Thank you to Kim Jong Un".

Earlier this week, Mr. Trump said the process of returning the remains was under way. After so many years, this will be a great moment for so many families. "I flew over where my father's plane went down". -North Korean searches at major battle sites in the North to recover more remains.

Read the full report at the New York Post. In May, 462 South Korean elders died without seeing their loved ones. North Korea has previously delivered such false "remains" as recently as in 2011.

Korea was divided into two parts under Japanese rule before and during World War II. Traveling and meeting North Korean people helps Americans understand the country their government has been at war with for 65 years, but it also helps humanize the enemy vilified by over six decades of hostility.

While many are expecting that to take place in the morning, there's been no official announcement from the USA, the North or UN Command. The war killed millions, including 36,000 American soldiers.
