Kim Jong Un Strokes Trump's Ego In Thank You Letter

South Korea’ Moon says North Korea-U.S. talks ‘on track,’ criticism a ploy

But North Korean officials never showed up.

Satellite imagery appears to show a that nuclear weapons manufacturing facility in the secretive country has been strengthened and improved in recent weeks.

Trump described the letter as a "very nice note" and said, "Great progress being made!".

President Trump tweeted out the note, dated July 6, on Thursday.

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

Trump met with Kim in Singapore on June 12-the first meeting between leaders of the two countries.

The repatriation of the remains of US soldiers from North Korea has been a major issue between Washington and Pyongyang since the end of the Korean War, when thousands of Americans were left in Korea either missing in action or as prisoners of war.

North Korean negotiators failed to show up for scheduled talks with the U.S.at Panmunjeom, Thursday, on repatriating the remains of USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War, indicating a possible rift between the two countries in ongoing denuclearization talks. "I have it for him", Trump said. The discussions about returning Americans soldiers killed nearly 70 years ago was perhaps the most tangible outcome from Pompeo's trip, which analysts expected would at least secure the release of some remains.

It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the postponement.

It's not yet known who will participate from the US side.

Moon, speaking in Singapore with its president and prime minister, said that talks on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula between North Korea and the United States may face hurdles and take time, his office said.

This latest incident comes shortly after Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang resulted in North Korea accusing Pompeo of making a "unilateral and gangster-like demand for nuclearization".

Pompeo gave a rosier readout. He reported that the two sides had substantive discussions on next steps toward denuclearization.

The President released the letter in Korean with an English translation.

"I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-US relations will bring our next meeting forward", Kim concludes, using the abbreviation for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

North Korea's criticism of talks with Pompeo fueled further doubts about whether Trump will ever achieve his goal of "complete denuclearization", much less on the timeline of one to 2-1/2 years set out by various administration officials.

According to a copy of the report seen by The Washington Post, U.S. officials calculated that even if the tankers carried only one-third of their full load, North Korea would have already exceeded the annual quota of 500,000 barrels allowed under United Nations sanctions.
