N. Kore­ans no-shows at meet­ing to dis­cuss U.S. sol­diers’ re­mains

Santa Fe New Mexican - - NATION & WORLD -

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.
