Byrd said they believe they're American because "there was a lot of military hardware, helmets, canteens. the same kinds of things that we find when we excavate" such sites in South and North Korea.

After a solemn ceremony at the USA military's Osan Air Base in South Korea, 55 boxes of remains draped in the United Nations flag were taken to a US military plane, which will then take them to a military laboratory in Hawaii for further analysis and identification.

"Based upon previous experiences with this type of turnover from the [Democratic Republic of North Korea], most of the remains will take many months to a few years to identify", an official added.

The United Nations Command repatriated 55 cases of soldier remains returned by North Korea last Thursday. The commitments it made to President Trump were too vague to preclude such activity.

"The Korean people have enjoyed the most dignified life in the bosom of the DPRK for 70 years".

The article is the latest in a string of propaganda pieces urging North Koreans to hang onto their austere communist ways and reject the "cultural poisoning" of the free world in anticipation of dictator Kim Jong-un announcing a refocus of his regime towards economic development.

The remains will be examined at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, and experts there will be responsible for identifying the remains. The North Koreans aren't puttering around with new missiles for their health.

Vice President Pence will take part in an Honorable Carry Ceremony for the remains when they arrive on Wednesday.

"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 in a release issued by the National Police. The officials who spoke to the Post said the evidence doesn't show that North Korea is growing its nuclear potential, but that it is still working on constructing modern weapons.

"What's more, a liquid-fueled ICBM doesn't pose nearly the threat that a solid-fueled one would because they take so long to fuel, and that's something we almost certainly could see in time to abort a launch, given our assets in the vicinity".

What does Mueller have? Manafort trial offers glimpse
Gates, 46, pleaded guilty to two lesser charges February, agreeing to cooperate with the special counsel's investigation. The former Trump campaign head was ordered to jail by a judge on new charges that he was tampering with witnesses.

Between 1990 and 2005, North Korea allowed 229 sets of remains to be repatriated, but those operations were suspended when ties worsened over Pyongyang´s banned nuclear weapons program.

If the reported North Korean nuclear activity seems inconsistent with what went down at the meeting in Indonesia, it's because Trump oversold the progress he made there.

"North Korea knows that we're watching", Bennett told AFP.

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.

The findings are the latest to suggest activity in the North's nuclear and missile facilities despite arms negotiations with the USA and a recent summit between President Donald Trump and tyrant Kim Jong-un.

55 caskets draped in the United Nations flag were loaded onto two U.S. Air Force C-17 aircraft, which took off Wednesday evening, Korea time, . heading to Hawaii for DNA identification.

Joel Wit, founder of the respected 38 North organization that monitors North Korea, noted it is not uncommon for a country to continue producing weapons up until the very moment an actual deal is signed.

"I don't think North Korea is refusing to give dog tags when it has more but it probably doesn't have dog tags lying around", he said.

The Pentagon said it was "absolutely" considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea for this goal.

Spy satellites have picked up new activity at the North Korean site that made the country's first intercontinental missiles, according to a senior USA official.
