Time to start making North Korea pay for its broken promises

He said that North Korean negotiators made "a commitment consistent with what President Trump was able to achieve with Chairman Kim, which was they intend to denuclearize, they're going to accomplish it and now the task is to get it implemented".

Case in point: On Thursday, the USA president posted a letter from the North Korean dictator as evidence that "great progress" was being made between the two countries.

Kim expressed deep appreciation for "the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President and for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement".

President Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted a letter to him from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un heralding "epochal progress" in U.S. The meeting was about returning the remains of American soldiers from the Korean War.

The United States said Thursday that North Korea has already exceeded the annual cap allowed for oil imports, and asked the United Nations to order an immediate halt to all transfers of oil to the country.

Kim Jong Un had committed to returning the remains of the troops from the 1950-53 conflict during talks with US President Donald Trump on 12 June.

According to Choi's source, the North Korean government says it has already unofficially presented its findings to Japan, but Kim has ordered the probe outcome to be explained again since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's administration claims to have never been briefed about it.

The repatriation of the remains of USA soldiers from North Korea has been a major issue between Washington and Pyongyang since the end of the Korean War, when thousands of Americans were left in Korea either missing in action or as prisoners of war.

In a post on Twitter, Mr Trump said the letter, dated July 6, was very nice and was a sign of "Great progress being made!".

Several days previously, Pyongyang had slated the U.S. for seeking unilateral and forced denuclearization from North Korea.

Last week, North Korea accused the United States of using a "gangster-like" tactics to push it towards nuclear disarmament after a fresh round of high-level talks.

In another development on Thursday, North Korean officials failed to turn up for talks with a USA team on the repatriation of the remains of American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war.

Meanwhile, it is yet to be seen whether North Korea will show up for the talks a day after the scheduled date.

Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang last weekend to flesh out the details of an agreement reached by Trump and Kim at their historic Singapore summit last month.

Moon said North Korea wanted the United States to take action to end hostile relations and build trust.
