WASHINGTON (Reuters) – North Korea has supplied to meet an American delegation on Sunday to talk about the repatriation of remains of troopers killed within the Korean War, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman stated on Thursday.
Spokeswoman Heather Nauert stated North Korea’s Vice Chairman Kim Yong Chol had agreed in earlier talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet on or about July 12 in Panmunjom with an American delegation over the remains. That assembly didn’t materialize.
“Midday today they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday,” Nauert stated in a press release. “We will be ready.”
