  • Trump: Kim Will Get 'Rocket Man' CD Later, Plus Surprise 'Little Gift'

In the translated letter, dated July 6, Mr. Kim praised his relationship with Mr. Trump and said the Singapore summit was "indeed the start of a meaningful journey".

President Donald Trump has touted the return of remains as one of the major achievements of his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

In the Twitter post, Trump hailed the letter, saying, "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea".

The letter made no mention of North Korea's plans to denuclearize.

And last weekend U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew to Pyongyang to follow up on that and other agreements, including North Korea's commitment to the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula. "We will be ready", she said in a statement.

Moon said he believed Trump and Kim would eventually make good on the promise made before the global community.

But in stark contrast, Pyongyang's take was overwhelmingly negative, with the North warning that the future of the peace process was being jeopardized by overbearing USA demands for its unilateral nuclear disarmament.

"The statement was to my ear - in a way - much more gentle and careful than I have heard from the North Koreans on any number of occasions over two decades", Gallucci said during a call with reporters organized by 38 North, a well-respected North Korea-watching website and project of the Stimson Center, a US think tank.

However, while the North's attitude may further impede the denuclearization talks, the regime is unlikely to boycott them. The expected North Korean officials never arrived, according to the official who requested anonymity as he was not permitted to talk publicly about the event.

Following his historic meeting with Mr Kim in Singapore, Mr Trump offered unspecified "security guarantees" to North Korea and said the USA would cease war-game exercises with the South. Defense Department, United Nations Command (UNC) and U.S. Forces Korea officials were left waiting in the DMZ's Joint Security Area.

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.

Thursday also marked the completion of one month since Trump held a historic summit with Kim in Singapore. The talks Sunday are expected to involve officials from the Pentagon and the U.N. Command, which commanded US -led allied forces during the war and is involved in maintaining the armistice that ended the fighting in 1953.

North Korean officials have failed to turn up for talks with a U.S. team on the repatriation of the remains of American soldiers killed in the Korean war.
