Trump shares letter from Kim, touts progress in talks

As one of my previous bosses reminded me, this is what happens when you miss a meeting.

Pompeo initially said the two sides had agreed to hold talks on USA remains on Thursday but no North Korea representatives showed up on the border.

A U.S. United Nations Command vehicle passes Tongil Daegyo, or Unification Bridge, in Paju, Gyeonggi, to head to the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom for general-level talks with North Korea Sunday morning.

US President Donald Trump released a letter on Thursday on his Twitter account, which he said he received from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and touted the "great progress" in bilateral talks between the two countries, a month after the two men met in Singapore.

The North did not show up at the border on Thursday but contacted the US on the same day to offer to meet on Sunday, US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said last week, adding "We will be ready".

Dozens of wooden coffins to carry the American remains have reportedly been brought to the southern side of the border in recent weeks.

North Korea has long trumpeted a denuclearization goal, but one that it sees as a lengthy process of undefined multilateral disarmament on the entire Korean peninsula, rather than a unilateral dismantlement of its nuclear arsenal.

The article said the Trump administration should ignore such messages in order to "build the new future of peace and prosperity breaking with the 70-year past dominated by distrust and confrontation".

This is the first yank on the choke chain, in other words. Trump canceled the summit two months ago after a similar no-show and eruption of angry rhetoric from Pyongyang, and the point of this demand to the United Nations is to show that Trump's position hasn't changed.

"I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President for the improvement of relations", Kim said, according to the letter, dated July 6.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pauses while speaking to members of the media following two days of meetings with Kim Yong Chol, a North Korean senior ruling party official and former intelligence chief, before boarding his plane at Sunan International Airport in Pyongyang, North Korea, July 7, 2018, to travel to Japan.

There hasn't been a missile or rocket fired in 9 months in North Korea, there have been no nuclear tests and we got back our hostages.

It is reported that the North was unhappy with the low rank of that meeting and wanted it upgraded to involve generals.

Pompeo has insisted that a raft of tough economic sanctions imposed on North Korea would remain in place until "final, fully verified denuclearization" occurs.
