USA says remains returned by North Korea likely American

USA says remains returned by North Korea likely American

The agency also has a lab at Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Nebraska, though the remains arriving this week will be analyzed at Hawaii's Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

In the past, North Korea turned over commingled remains. North Korea has already made two of its ICBMs at that plant. They believe North Korea is building at least one of its Hwasong-15 missiles there.

Hanwell Kaakimaka's uncle, John Kaakimaka, is among those who never came home. "But then they'll say, 'The next ones, we need to find them, locate them, restore them.' And then they'll start charging". "So, this is an worldwide effort to bring closure for those families".

Hanwell Kaakimaka said the story he heard from his dad was that his uncle was injured and was being brought back from the front when Chinese troops overran his uncle's unit's position and attacked its convoy.

There was only one identification "dog tag" the North Koreans included in the transfer, he said, but it's unclear whether his remains were among the 55 caskets.

Examination of dental charts and mitochondrial DNA will be key technologies used to identifying the remains, and the process may take years to complete, DoD officials said.

How will the remains be identified?

Fifty-five boxes, topped with blue United Nations flags, were handed over at Wonsan, North Korea, last week and flown to a USA base in South Korea.




A US airman stands guard next to caskets containing remains of USA soldiers killed in the Korean War and collected in North Korea before a repatriation ceremony at Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018. "They could go to Australia", he said. "The nuclear program provides them with a deterrent in their mind against regime change by the United States". Four U.S. fighter jets flew low in a tribute.

Citing unnamed officials familiar with the intelligence, the USA daily said that newly obtained evidence, including satellite photos taken in recent weeks, suggests that North Koreans were working on at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled ICBMs at a large research facility in Sanumdong on the outskirts of Pyongyang.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on a tour of Asian capitals this week, in part to urge countries to keep the sanctions pressure on North Korea in order to push the denuclearization process along.

In that address, the North Korean leader was unequivocal about what was next, they say.

This commercial satellite image shows North Korea's Sanumdong missile assembly facility south of Pyongyang on July 7.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also vowed during his separate summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore in June to work toward denuclearization, but there has been no concrete agreement to accomplish that goal.

Kim Jong-un agreed to "denuclearise" North Korea. In the post-summit atmosphere, North Korea has received a much higher level of recognition than in the past, and even if North Korea makes no moves to fulfill the vaguely worded agreement signed in Singapore, it seems unlikely that the United States will be able to muster a continued, universal blockade of North Korean trade.
