All Americans welcome the return of remains from the Korean War.
On July 27, North Koreareturned the remains of US soldiers killed in the Korean War (1950-1953) for the first time in 11 years, a decision warmly welcomed by Washington.

Richard Downes, whose father, Air Force Lt. Hal Downes, is among the Korean War missing, says this turnover of remains, having drawn worldwide attention, has the potential to put the US back on track to finding and eventually identifying many more.

"And the military says that it has already notified the soldier's family that his dog tag has been found".

Last week Pyongyang returned 55 cases of remains from the 1950-53 Korean War, in line with an agreement between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at their summit in Singapore in June. The government has said only that the UN Security Council -where China and the United States both wield vetoes - should revisit sanctions after Kim's meeting with Trump.
Kim signed an agreement to work toward denuclearization during a summit with Trump last month, and Trump spent the wake of the meeting praising the brutal regime leader's character and intelligence.
Narang said the aim of such a strategy would be to obtain sanctions relief, while still retaining a deterrent - what he called "the best of all worlds for North Korea".
"Offer up 20 first-gen warheads, claim you are or have disarmed, but keep the good stuff in presumably clandestine facilities and hope they aren't discovered", Narang said.
