Month After Summit, Trump Tweets "Very Nice" Letter From Kim Jong

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

Case in point: On Thursday, the US president posted a letter from the North Korean dictator as evidence that "great progress" was being made between the two countries.

Kim continued by expressing confidence that "the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach" to bring about a new future between the US and North Korea would "come to fruition".

Kim also voices hope "the invariable trust and confidence in Your Excellency Mr. President will be further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions".

In the meeting at the Korean Peninsula's demilitarized zone, the two sides had been expected to discuss the return of US troops' remains from the 1950-53 Korean War - an arrangement that the State Department had announced after Secretary Michael R. Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang last weekend.

Trump was in London to meet with United Kingdom leaders after leaving the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, when he tweeted Kim's letter. The North Korean leader also agreed to repatriate the remains of United States troops who died during the Korean War six decades ago.

And even as Trump released Kim's note, the US was asking the U.N. Security Council to punish North Korea after finding that Pyongyang had violated restrictions on refined oil imports.

He was referring the summit statement signed by the two leaders - the first-ever US-North Korean summit - in which Kim agreed in broad terms to "work toward denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula. "We will be ready", she said in a statement.

In publishing the letter, President Trump tweeted: "Great progress being made!"

One problem - no North Korean officials showed up, The New York Times reported. Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The Defense Department estimates there are up to 5,300 sets of USA service member remains still somewhere in North Korea.

North Korean officials denounced the meeting at its conclusion, accusing the USA of having a "gangster-like" attitude in negotiations.

North Korea, meanwhile, lashed out at Washington for presenting "gangster-like demands" for complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.

The Department of Defense estimates that North Korea is holding about 200 sets of remains from some 5,300 American military personnel believed missing in the country.

North Korea said Saturday it was seeking the "earliest start of the working-level talks" on the recovery of USA remains.

However, recovery efforts were suspended when the relationship between both countries worsened, as the North began the advancement of its nuclear programme.
