Trump releases 'very nice' letter from Kim Jong Un
South Korea’ Moon says North Korea-U.S. talks ‘on track,’ criticism a ploy

President Trump on Thursday released a personal note from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un praising the "epochal progress" since their summit in Singapore last month, despite a series of recent setbacks that have cast doubt on denuclearization talks.
The North Korean leader affirmed his firm belief that "the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach" the two have "aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the US will surely come to fruition".
In his note, Kim offered no reassurances that he is committed to relinquishing his country's nuclear weapons or ballistic missile arsenal, referring more generally to "the faithful implementation of the joint statement" agreed to in Singapore.
If North Korea does not make substantial progress by that time, then Trump will be forced to revert to his old game of chicken policies.
The message came after Secretary of State Michael Pompeo returned from his third visit to North Korea.
Other speculation is that North Korea was discomforted with the way it was portrayed by the US media _ as trying to make money from the war remains.
North Korean officials did not turn up to a Thursday meeting with the USA military about repatriating the remains of the war dead, according to a US official with knowledge of the situation.
The US military also announced that 100 wooden coffins had been dispatch to Panmunjom to receive the remains, although repatriation has yet to take place.
North Korean officials skipped planned talks on repatriating the remains of American war dead Thursday in the latest snub of a US administration eager to show progress on efforts to rid the communist state of nuclear weapons. He added that "great progress being made!".
North Korean and USA teams, as well as United Nations officials, had been due to discuss the details of repatriation. "We will be ready".
A source with knowledge of the discussions between Pompeo and North Korea said the feeling at the White House was the trip went "as badly as it could have gone".
Although the letter was written less than a week ago, it's not clear where US-North Korean talks stand now. Roughly 5,300 U.S. troops presumed to have been killed in the Korean war are unaccounted for.
NATO leaders on Wednesday called on all nations to maintain "decisive pressure" on North Korea, including by fully implementing United Nations sanctions, to persuade it to give up it nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
But Pyongyang warned that the future of the peace process was being jeopardised by "unilateral and gangster-like" U.S. demands.
Mr Trump also said he was "cracking down" on the European Union as "they have not treated the United States fairly on trading". Yet, now that protesters are planning to fly a great big diapered Baby Trump blimp, he doesn't feel welcome anymore.
That prompted fears it might go beyond matching Washington's duty increases by disrupting operations for U.S. companies in China. But the ongoing trade tension between the United States and China has cast a shadow over the otherwise promising growth.
But the same goes for the 32-year-old Anderson, who also reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinal, and now semifinal, this week. It had a little of everything, great points, great rallies, he was hitting insane with his forehands.
Deep down Southgate and his men fear they may never get a better chance of reaching a first World Cup final since 1966. England fans were crushed last night, crushed this morning , and will be crushed for some time yet.
Mr Sprinks, who goes by the stage name Sprinkles, added: "Our vocalist, Freak, had a bit of a thing about Trump". After London , he will travel to Scotland and then onto Helsinki to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
It was then that he heard the news that she may defy the subpoena and refuse to testify and condemned it as a "total disgrace". She was expected to appear before the Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday, Fox News reported Monday.

Demonstrators will assemble outside the BBC building in Portland Place at 2pm on Friday and march to Trafalgar Square for a rally. Trump added that the U.K.is a "pretty hot spot", given the recent upheaval in the government there.
