Trump tweets ‘very nice note’ he received from Kim Jong Un

The return of US remains was one of the key agreements to come from US President Donald Trump's June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

THE courtship between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appears to be going strong, with the president revealing he received a "very nice note" from the dictator. The letter made no mention of denuclearization.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew to Pyongyang last week to flesh out the agreement but publicly reported little tangible progress in its implementation. Pompeo landed in the North Korean capital on July 6 and left the following day.

Pyongyang has said it would be willing to abandon the nuclear weapons it has developed to deter a potential invasion if the USA could end its "hostile policy" toward it. Kim has already demolished his only known nuclear testing site and a missile site, while some reports have suggested that the destruction of other key locations may not be going as quickly as anticipated.

In the tweet sent on Thursday, Trump declared "Great progress being made!" with North Korea, despite signs that diplomacy between the traditional adversaries was running into trouble.

He also says that bilateral trust should be "further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions".

"We agreed to the denuclearisation of North Korea".

Anderson served for the third at 5-3, got broken, then had a pair of set points in that tiebreaker, double-faulting one away. Anderson had break points in the 15th, 21st and 35th games of the decider before taking victory when a tired Isner hit long.

It's nearly certainly no coincidence that this report happened to be available at the very moment when North Korea exhibited balkiness in the negotiations. Such talks had been held 16 times since 1998.

"Mid-day, on July the 12th, they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday July 15", Nauert said in a statement, adding "We'll be ready".

"We will be ready", Nauert told reporters aboard Pompeo's plane, as the top United States diplomat flew home to Washington after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Pompeo was not granted an audience with Kim, and North Korea criticized US demands following the visit.

The talks were first such meeting between the UNC and the North's military in over nine years. Worse still, if there ever were a real conflict with North Korea, the lives of millions of South Koreans would be at risk. Of that number, 5,300 are believed to have fallen north of the 38th parallel marking the DMZ. according to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA). If the USA government accepts the proposal, it would be the first meeting between an American and North Korean military general in nine years.

The source with knowledge of the talks told CNN that Trump asked whether Kim knew where he'd gotten the nickname, and Kim said no. Trump asked Kim if he had heard of the Elton John song.

Trump, who was at the same news conference as Pompeo, stressed he had an "amazing meeting" with Chairman Kim last month.
