In that address, the North Korean leader was unequivocal about what was next, they say.

Byrd spoke to the Reuters news agency in Osan just before a repatriation ceremony at the base, after which the remains were to be flown to Hawaii for further analysis.

North and South Korea held military talks to build trust yesterday, while the USA detected renewed activity at a North Korean missile factory.

"We will make our best efforts to ensure that we can craft practical measures to reduce military tensions and build trust between the two Koreas through this meeting", Major Gen. Kim Do-gyun, the chief of the five-member South Korean delegation, told reporters before departing for Panmunjom. "We'll see what happens".

The remains were then moved in gray vans to an airfield where US and South Korean soldiers loaded them one by one into transport planes.

Dozens of American, South Korean and other soldiers and officials from United Nations countries that fought in the Korean War conducted a ceremony with full military honors before the remains were loaded into military transport aircraft for the flight to Hawaii on Wednesday.

Richard Downes, whose father, Air Force Lt. Hal Downes, is among the Korean War missing, says this turnover of remains, having drawn worldwide attention, has the potential to put the US back on track to finding and eventually identifying many more.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that United States intelligence agencies are seeing signs that work is under way on one or two liquid-fueled ICMBs at the Sanumdong research facility, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The Sanum-dong site is associated with North Korea's ICBM program.

He added that the remains could be of Australians, French or any of the others who fought alongside American troops in the Korean War.

Mueller Wants to Talk to Trump About His Tweets, Sources Tell NYT
The Times has also created a timeline which puts a few of Trump's tweets in the context of other stories and events. But again, whatever Mueller coughs up will be enough for Democrats if they're in control of the House next year.

A senior State Department official said Tuesday that Pompeo will urge Asian countries at a meeting in Singapore this weekend to enforce United Nations sanctions on North Korea.

This factory has already produced two of North Korea's ICBMs, including the one that could supposedly strike the US East Coast - the Hwasong-15.

"The main reason for us coming [to Pyongyang] is to convey an official invitation to the president of North Korea to attend the Asian Games Opening Ceremony on August 18", Maharani said, according to Reuters.

It also comes despite U.S. President Donald Trump's claim on Twitter, shortly after his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, that Pyongyang was "no longer a Nuclear Threat". "Thank you to Kim Jong Un".

United Nations and US military personnel take part in a repatriation ceremony for the remains of suspected Korean War troops at the Osan air base in South Korea, Aug. 1, 2018.

A USA military aircraft left North Korea last week carrying 55 boxes handed over by Kim Jong Un's regime that are believed to contain the remains of US service members.

Critics caution the move is largely symbolic, since the facility can easily be rebuilt.

What are experts saying about this?

Based on this and other evidence, US officials reportedly believe that work is underway on at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled ICBMs at the factory. "These types of things tell us that there are steps that still must be taken on the road to denuclearization", Brooks said.

An armistice that ended the Korean War has yet to be replaced with a peace treaty, leaving the peninsula in a technical state of war.
