N. Koreans no-shows at meeting to discuss U.S. soldiers’ remains
North Korean officials did not show up Thursday for a meeting with Americans at the inter-Korean border to discuss the return of remains of U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean War, officials said.
Kim Jong Un, the North’s leader, committed to repatriating U.S. soldiers’ remains in his June talks with President Donald Trump.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last week, after meeting with officials in North Korea, that working-level talks on the matter would be held in Panmunjom, the truce village on the border between North and South Korea. Although U.S. military officials went to Panmunjom for the meeting Thursday, their North Korean counterparts did not.
