Kim conveys optimism for DPRK-US ties

Trump: Kim Will Get 'Rocket Man' CD Later, Plus Surprise 'Little Gift'

"Midday today they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday", Ms Nauert said in a statement.

President Trump told reporters while leaving the White House this morning to fly to Brussels for the NATO summit that he does have a special gift for North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, but it hasn't been gifted yet. Roughly 5,300 USA troops presumed to have been killed in the Korean war are unaccounted for.

News outlet Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that the us sent a report to the United Nations sanctions committee stating that at least 759,793 barrels of oil products had been delivered to North Korea from January 1 to May 30.

There was widespread speculation that Pompeo would return with the remains following his visit to Pyongyang, but that did not happen.

The declassified USA intelligence sent to the United Nations sanctions committee estimated that ship-to-ship transfers may have provided North Korea with as much as 1,367,628 barrels of refined products.

But readers soon pointed out that the letter didn't actually mention any action that had been taken, and only made vague promises about 'the future progress of taking practical actions'. The U.S. Defense Department has estimated that 7,700 troops are still unaccounted for from the war, with 5,300 believed to have been killed north of the 38th parallel, the border between North and South Korea.

Fiat workers 'to strike over Cristiano Ronaldo signing'
The action, which does not include all workers at the production plant, will take place from Sunday, July 15, to Tuesday, July 17. But whiles many Juventus fans are over the moon with the capture of Ronaldo, it appears not everyone is happy with the deal.


"Look, people are going to make stray comments after meetings", Pompeo said.

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

But Pentagon officials cautioned it is unclear just how much North Korea is preparing to hand over.

On Monday Trump reiterated his confidence in Kim.

Despite the recent setbacks, "Great progress being made", Trump tweeted on Thursday along with images of the letter in English and Korean, calling it a "very nice note from Chairman Kim". "Great progress being made", he wrote.

Trump shared the letters on social media, one written in Korean and the other a translation.

Nets trade Lin to Hawks
The Brooklyn Nets traded the oft-traveled point guard to the Atlanta Hawks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night. Faried, 28, played in 32 games (seven starts) for Denver last season, averaging 5.9 points and 4.8 rebounds.


The letter is dated July 6.

The North Korean leader affirmed his firm belief that "the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach" the two have "aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the USA will surely come to fruition".

But at the border village of Panmunjom on Thursday, the North Koreans were a no-show for their scheduled working-level talks with US officials on the repatriation of American troops killed in the North during the Korean War. But he also acknowledged that a lot of work remained to be done, including on the issue of setting a timeline for denuclearization. "We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea".

North Korea watchers downplayed the significance of the letter.

Ahead of the summit in Singapore, North Korean officials sometimes did not turn up to meetings where their US counterparts were expecting them, causing tension between the two negotiating partners. Pompeo characterized his talks with North Korean officials as productive, but the North's foreign ministry blasted the discussions, saying the visit - the third by the top USA diplomat since April - had been "regrettable".

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has said the United States will not be "sidelined or sidetracked" in negotiations to dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
