United States spy satellites have detected renewed activity at a North Korean nuclear missile factory, according to a senior USA official.

A solemn ceremony was held at Osan U.S. Air Base Wednesday evening, . commemorating the return of 55 sets of remains believed to be American troops killed during the Korean War.

A USA defense official said Tuesday that it probably will take months if not years to fully determine individual identities from the remains.

US officials also are eager to resume searches in North Korea for more remains, an effort that has been stalled for more than a decade due to rising nuclear tensions.

General Brooks said, .it is a cherished duty to send those who went missing in action during the war back to their families and countries.

News of the missile production comes amid the renewed scrutiny surrounding the Trump-Kim summit which took place in Singapore on June 12. About 5,300 were lost in what is now North Korea.

At the start of the meeting, Ahn noted South Korean news reports suggesting that he might try to persuade the South to push for a joint declaration with the United States to formally end the war.

Vice President Pence will take part in an Honorable Carry Ceremony for the remains when they arrive on Wednesday.

Pence attended a repatriation ceremony at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, where 55 caskets of presumed troop remains were unloaded from military planes and placed on stanchions at the air base.

After an April 2017 meeting at the president's Mar-a-Lago home, Xi supported successive rounds of United Nations sanctions and clamped down on border trade with North Korea. The Post stressed that this does not prove that the country is expanding its nuclear program, but it does show that it has continued to work on its advanced weapons.

North Korea is also reportedly still secretly operating the Kangson uranium-enrichment facility.

DPAA deputy director Rear Admiral Jon Kreitz said he saw the remains transfer as an important step that will lead to more recovery operations in North Korea.

North Korea got respect, trade, and weapons, and now they appear to be going on as if Singapore put no restrictions on them.
