He said the U.S.is prepared to discuss arrangements for future U.S.


Pompeo told reporters that there is "still a ways to go before" the country fully denuclearizes, noting that North Korea is still in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

The Defense Department agency that accounts for missing American service members from past wars hopes to negotiate the resumption of joint operations to recover remains in North Korea, an official said Thursday, calling such efforts a "sacred obligation". He declined to disclose the name on the tag but said two family members had been notified and are expected to be in the Washington, D.C., area next week with family groups for a detailed briefing from DPAA on the next steps in identifying the remains.

Much of that money was sent as reimbursement for the costs incurred during the recovery process, which for years involved North Korean officials accompanying American delegations as they traveled to war sites and obtained remains. He said the remains are "good candidates to be missing Americans from the Korean War", where thousands died on battlefields and in prisoner-of-war camps during the 1950-53 conflict and remain officially unaccounted for.

Byrd was present when North Korean officials turned over the 55 boxes at Wonsan airport in North Korea last Friday, and he was among the US government specialists who made a further preliminary examination of the contents after the boxes were flown to Osan air base in South Korea the same day. -North Korean team in April and May 2005.
