Pompeo says North Korea deal 'may take some time'

North Korea to Hand Over Up to 55 Sets of US Remains Soon: Reports

Beyond the promised initial return of remains that the North may have been holding in storage for years, the State Department said earlier this week that the two sides have agreed to restart searches for burial locations of US war remains in North Korea.

The two leaders pledged to work toward denuclearisation but stopped short of defining the process, much less ascribing a timeline for its completion.

"This is something that North Korea is not very happy with", Go said.

Russian Federation and China told the council that they needed more time to consider the United States request and to review Washington's allegations of sanctions-busting by North Korea.

Since the summit, Trump has said or tweeted several times that remains had already been returned, but there have been no transfers to date.

It said the intelligence community believes the weapon is deemed essential by the communist state for its survival as it positions "itself to extract every concession it can from the Trump administration".

More than a month later, no concrete progress has been reported and North Korea has complained the Americans are making unilateral demands.

"We had expected that the United States side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders' summit".

Trump said he discussed North Korea with Putin on Monday at their summit in Helsinki.

Diplomats expect Pompeo to push for continued strict enforcement of UN sanctions on North Korea during the meeting, also to be attended by South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japan's UN Ambassador Koro Bessho. Following the meeting, he said the process would start "very quickly".

Following the 12 June meeting, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he hoped to see "major disarmament" by North Korea by the end of 2020.

Last week, the USA asked the Security Council committee monitoring sanctions against North Korea to send a letter to United Nations member states and the general public saying North Korea had breached the quota.

Part of the reason for the delay is logistics related. "That's the commitment", he said.
