North Korea snubs US at planned meeting to discuss the returns of soldiers’ remains

Jul 13 , 2018

North Korean officials did not turn up to Thursday’s scheduled meeting with the US military about repatriating the remains of the war dead, according to a US official with knowledge of the situation.

The two sides had been expected to discuss at the Korean Peninsula’s demilitarised zone (DMZ) the return of US troop remains from the 1950-1953 war – an arrangement that the State Department had announced after Secretary Mike Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang last Friday and Saturday.
