President Trump Slams Mainstream Media Over N. Korea Summit Coverage

After the summit, Trump echoed a phrase used by North Korea, calling the long-standing military drills "provocative, expensive and inappropriate".

President Donald Trump is trumpeting results of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that get ahead of reality.

President Donald Trump extended the state of national emergency against North Korea for an extra year Friday despite his recent statements that the threat to the USA posed by dictator Kim Jong Un's missiles and nuclear weapons was a thing of the past.

However, asked on Wednesday if he could "put his finger on" any steps North Korea had taken to dismantle its nuclear weapons program, Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon: "No, I'm not aware of that".

Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has introduced a new national oath playing down the achievements of his father and grandfather and instead praising his own ideology and leadership.

The last time North Korea turned over remains was in 2007, when Bill Richardson, a former United Nations ambassador and New Mexico governor, secured the return of six sets.

Mr Pompeo's spokesman Heather Nauert has said she will not provide details of the negotiations, warning reporters the process "can be hard when we're distracted by all of the questions going on". "Continue to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the US", Mr. Trump wrote in the declaration. -South Korea military alliance and USA withdrawal of its nuclear umbrella protecting South Korea and Japan.

"Chairman Kim promised that North Korea would destroy a missile engine test stand soon", the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Joint U.S. -North Korean military search teams recovered 229 sets of American remains from North Korea between 1996 and 2005. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

"Yes. I think that I've had a very good relationship, we have a good chemistry together.and I really believe he's.looking to do the right thing", Trump said.

Japan, which hosts some 50,000 U.S. military personnel, including the biggest overseas concentration of U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy carrier strike group, relies on the Washington for its defence and operates closely with its military. But it's unclear what Trump meant when he went on to say "it was actually four of their big test sites".

Cases of co-mingled remains are the most hard because they require identifying which skeletal fragments belong to the same person, said Luis Fondebrider, president of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, a non-governmental group that applies forensic science to investigate human rights violations.

North Korea has other missile testing facilities but the shutdown, if it happens, would be significant, analysts said.
