Kim hopes for 'improvement of relations' with U.S. in letter to Trump

President Donald Trump held a first meeting with Kim in Singapore on June 11 of this year to discuss denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang last weekend to flesh out the details of an agreement reached by Trump and Kim at their historic Singapore summit last month. Kim also agreed to repatriate remains of U.S. troops who died during the Korean War six decades ago.

There are about 7,700 United States soldiers classified as missing in action from the war.

At the June 12 Singapore summit, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un committed to recovering the remains of fallen American troops, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner, D-Virginia, wrote to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Thursday, asking him to answer a number of questions related to North Korea's progress, in light of statements made by President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The letter was dated July 6, 2018, and was addressed to "H.E. Donald J. Trump", in what appears to be the latest sign that the two men were getting along after making history at the first-ever meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean supreme leader in Singapore last month.

Mr Pompeo had said progress was made during his two-day visit to Pyongyang.

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" "If those requests were gangster-like, the world is a gangster, because there was a unanimous decision at the UN Security Council about what needs to be achieved", he told reporters.

It had been expected at the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom.

In fact, it appears to echo concerns that Trump did nothing more than give up a bunch of concessions without having Kim commit to a hardline stance on dismantling his country's nuclear ambitions. Kim is reportedly eyeing Switzerland as a potential venue for a second meeting, with North Korean diplomats sent to Bern, Davos, and Geneva last week to scope out hotels and conference centers, Kyodo reported. About 100 wooden transport cases were sent to the DMZ in recent weeks to prepare for receiving U.S. troop remains.

But North Korea's delegation failed show up.

Pompeo said after his trip that there had been progress in the talks.

North Korea proposed to reschedule the meeting for Sunday.

Sanctions imposed by the United Nations in December placed a cap on refined oil exports to North Korea at 500,000 barrels annually.
