Mike Pompeo says North Korea weapons work inconsistent with Kim pledge

"The ongoing correspondence between the two leaders is aimed at following up on their meeting in Singapore and advancing the commitments made in the US-DPRK joint statement", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The White House confirmed Trump had received a new letter from Kim but did not reveal its content.

Trump's Twitter post on Thursday thanked Kim for returning the remains of some American war dead from the 1950-1953 Korean War.

Fifty-five boxes of remains arrived in Hawaii this week, and the Department of Defense said the remains were "consistent" with Americans killed in the war. "I am not at all surprised that you took this kind action", Trump said.

"We have responded to Chairman Kim's letter - the president has - and that letter will be delivered shortly", Sanders told reporters.

In addition, the 55 transfer cases handed over by the North Koreans contained equipment associated with the American military, such as boots, canteens, buttons and buckles, Byrd said.

China is North Korea's most important economic and diplomatic supporter and fought for the North in the 1950-53 Korean War against the US -led United Nations forces that backed South Korea. "The world demanded that they (North Korea) do so in the U.N. Security Council resolutions".

Pence also praised Trump for having the nation's fallen war heroes "on his heart" during his summit with Kim, which was focused on denuclearization of the Korea Peninsula.

On Wednesday, Trump thanked Kim Jong-un for returning some of the remains of American soldiers from the Korean War after Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Hawaii to receive the remains.

The U.S. military flew the remains from Osan Air Base in South Korea after they had undergone an initial review.

While North Korea at times has unilaterally handed over boxes of remains, as the country did this week, more fruitful in the eyes of US officials have been joint efforts to find and recover remains with American personnel on the ground.

While it's hoped that the repatriation will build momentum toward North Korea's nuclear disarmament, . many say the progress towards securing a firm commitment from Pyongyang has been slow.

Meanwhile, 38 North, a USA website monitoring the regime, said last month that satellite imagery pointed to the dismantlement of a missile engine testing site in line with Kim's verbal promise to Trump at the summit.

Experts say positively identifying the decades-old remains could take anywhere from days to decades.
