He also thanked the leader for returning the suspected remains of US soldiers killed in Korean War.

Military members stand at attention after placing transfer cases in a hanger at a ceremony marking the arrival of the remains believed to be of American service members who fell in the Korean War at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018.

Still, an initial field forensic review indicated the "remains are what North Korea said they were", John Byrd, director of analysis for the U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, told reporters at an air base in South Korea before the remains were flown to Hawaii.

It was later revealed that North Korea didn't actually hand over any remains.

It also reported that North Korean officials have discussed how they plan to deceive the United States about the size of their arsenal of missiles and nuclear warheads and facilities.

The area around the site has yielded results previously, with remains being uncovered there during the 1990s and early 2000s. Vice-President Mike Pence and USA military leaders received the remains in Hawaii during a sombre ceremony on Wednesday.

Trump 'would personally prefer' shutdown fight before midterms
A shutdown would be the third such political embarrassment since Republicans took control of the White House, House and Senate. The President said he would be willing to shutdown the government if the Democrats don't include border security funding.

"One of the things that hasn't happened is the demonstrable moves toward denuclearization before we can entertain something like the end-of-war declaration", Harris said, according to Yonhap.

Many nations fought in the Korean War, but war artifacts that came with the remains - such as buttons, belts, canteens and boots - point to the bones being American, he said.

Location information accompanying the boxes suggested most of the remains are those of U.S. Army soldiers who fought in the famous 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir.

Another method of identification was through chest x-rays that were on file for those who served in the Korean War, McKeague said. He noted that the North Koreans had taken great care with the body parts, though the bones themselves were in varying condition. Late Wednesday, he addressed Chairman Kim in a tweet, saying he was "not at all surprised that you took this kind action".

The pledge to deliver war remains was seen as a goodwill gesture by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un during his June summit with US President Donald Trump.

He aded: 'We are very hopeful that in today's events there is further evidence that promises made in Singapore by North Korea will be kept'.
