"I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-U.S. relations will bring our next meeting forward", Kim wrote in the letter.

In between came Pyongyang's "Pompeo peeve": Officials vented that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's latest terms are so "disappointing" and "regrettable" that they "rattle our willingness for denuclearization".

North Korean and U.S. military officials met at the inter-Korea border Sunday to discuss repatriation of the remains of American troops killed during the Korean War, a report said.

When Trump and Kim held their historic summit in Singapore on June 12, Kim - in addition to promising, in vague terms, to work toward the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula - committed to returning the remains of United States troops recovered from major Korean War battle sites in his country, including the "immediate repatriation of those already identified".

Although the summits have produced vague promises to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, there are lingering doubts on whether Kim would ever agree to fully relinquish his nukes, which he may see as his strongest guarantee of survival. "It is likely that military generals from the USA and North Korea will take part in the meeting".

Since the beginning of the new year, North Korea has cooled its anti-U.S. rhetoric and re-established rare diplomatic ties to Seoul.

But Kim's note, which Trump included in his Twitter post with an image of the letter in Korean and an English-language translation of it, took a different tone.

Trump has said there is "trust" with Kim and has previously stated there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. "Based on my conversations on this trip, I plan to continue coordination with the US on our joint strategy for (North Korea's) denuclearization".

Recall June 12 in Singapore met trump and Kim Jong-UN.

The Pentagon's effort to find and bring home the long-lost United States servicemen has been continually stymied by political tensions over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

Pompeo had hoped to "fill in" details on how to dismantle the North's nuclear programme and recover the remains of US troops in his talks in Pyongyang this month.

"We will be ready", she said.

South Korea said on Friday it had scrambled military jets to intercept two Russian military aircraft that entered the South's air defence territory four times through the day.

The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation. "The Fake News here unfortunately are the Tweets by the president that he ended the nuclear threat from North Korea", Cha said in an editorial in Kyodo News.
