In a joint statement at their Singapore summit on June 12, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un committed to recovering the remains of prisoners of war and those missing in action decades after the Korean War - "including the immediate repatriation of those already identified".

Mr Trump said on Tuesday that talks with Pyongyang were going fine.

"Discussions are ongoing and they're going very, very well", Trump told reporters.

Earlier this week, Trump also had an extensive one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where he said they discussed reducing nuclear weapons worldwide.

US intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.

More than a month later, no concrete progress has been reported and North Korea has complained that the United States is making unilateral demands. He also said: "There is no rush, the sanctions remain!"

The United States will receive the remains of American service members in the coming weeks from North Korea, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also seems to be in favor of a fast denuclearization process.

It asked the committee to notify all United Nations member states that North Korea has breached a refined petroleum cap of 500,000 barrels a year - imposed by the council in December - and order an immediate halt to all transfers.

Speaking at a press conference in the United Kingdom last week, the USA president said negotiations with Pyongyang would be "probably a longer process than anybody would like".

Part of the reason for the delay is logistics related.

Trump sees no reason to believe Russian Federation behind election meddling
Nonetheless, Bolton said the indictment is a "serious matter" that Trump needs to talk about it with Putin. I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked.
