Trump Says North Korea Blew Up Four Big Test Sites

Is Kim trading a war-games suspension for sanctions relief in Beijing?

Now for a bit of a history lesson, kids - the Korean War began in June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following a number of clashes.

Only about 57,000 people registered with the South Korean Red Cross to meet their separated relatives remain alive, majority aged over 70.

"I will guide all WPK members and the DPRK people to earnestly implement the important consensus reached by Comrade General Secretary and me, to lift the unbreakable DPRK-China relations to a new level", Kim said.

The U.S. military will then perform a short ceremony before sending the remains to Hawaii, where they might be properly identified through DNA testing. The families were driven apart during the turmoil of the war.

And when she saw President Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore just last week, she immediately distrusted the North Korean dictator. Moon described Kim as "forthright", "careful" and "polite". The rivals recently agreed to restore cross-border military hotline communication channels and field joint teams in some events at the upcoming Asian Games in Indonesia.

The two-day visit which ends Wednesday is created to reassure Beijing that Pyongyang will not neglect its interests as Trump and the young autocrat move into uncharted diplomatic terrain. South Korea also announced Wednesday that it was nixing its own simulation-based military drills, which had been slated for next week.

China has pressed North Korea to adopt economic reforms and has touted the prospects of increased trade and investment if Pyongyang makes progress in talks on abandoning its nuclear weapons and long-range missile programs.

Most died without the chance to see or hear from their relatives on the other side of the border, across which all civilian communication is banned.

The reunion, to be held in August, will be the first since October 2015, and comes amid a thaw in diplomatic relations on the Korean peninsula.

The limited rounds of reunions are vastly insufficient to meet the demands of aging relatives, who are mostly in their 80s and 90s, South Korean officials say. None of the past participants has had a second reunion. The bloody battles finished with a stalemate and a 1953 armistice that resulted in the division of Korea into the North and South.

"But the most well-known one is this, so there is a great symbolic meaning if this is shut down", said Moon Hong-sik, a research fellow at the Institute for National Security Strategy in South Korea.

China will continue to play a constructive role to this end, Xi said.

One of the challenges in the reunification process is the confirmation of the whereabouts of the lost families in North Korea, an issue which requires close cooperation with Pyongyang. This will be the first state visit by a South Korean president to Russian Federation since 1999.
