Officials of the United States and North Korea met at the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom on Sunday for talks about repatriating the remains of US troops killed during the 1950-53 Korean War.
Recovering and repatriating the remains of the American troops was one of the agreements that US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reached during their historic June 12 summit in Singapore.
Kim praised Trump for "energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement".
US and North Korean officials had originally planned to have talks on the issue of remains on Thursday in Panmunjeom, but the North did not show up.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency, citing South Korean government and USA military sources, said the negotiations had begun at 0100 GMT at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas.
The Pentagon has said North Korean officials have indicated in the past they have the remains of as many as 200 USA troops.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he expected Donald Trump to show some "political will" to move towards normalising relations. Trump said he did not think Russian Federation would have invaded Crimea if he had been in the White House at the time.
But some 77 per cent of Britons have an unfavourable view of Trump, according to a poll by YouGov with 1,648 respondents. Trump's itinerary will largely keep him out of central London , where significant protests are expected.
