Those priorities, from China's perspective, would be to ensure that Beijing is included in any in peace treaty talks and for creating an environment on the Korean Peninsula that will make it unnecessary for U.S. troops to remain. More than 36,500 United States troops died in the conflict.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon said Friday evening that it has "indefinitely suspended" a major military exercise with South Korea, known as Freedom Guard and scheduled for August, as well as two Korean Marine exchange training exercises.

Trump undoubtedly was referencing North Korea's demolition in late May of a nuclear test site at Punggye-ri in a remote area in the northeastern part of the country.

Noh also downplayed concerns that improved relations between China and North Korea could result in China loosening its sanctions against the North, saying that Beijing has repeatedly stated its commitment to U.N. Security Council resolutions against North Korea.

The remains are likely to be brought to Osan, a USA military air base south of Seoul, before being sent to Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii for identification. USA officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible.

The transfer of remains is usually done in a somber, formal ceremony, and that is what officials said was being planned.

The president said at the cabinet meeting that "they've already sent back, or are in the process of sending back, the remains".

China says it regrets USA quitting United Nations rights council
Commenting on the announcement, Spokesman for the UN Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric expressed regret about the USA move. Why has the USA chose to quit? The decision, though, became another point of criticism targeting the Trump administration.

The degree that bones have broken down is also important, and deterioration, such as from being under soil, can affect whether DNA can be recovered, he said.

It could signal North Korea is willing to include a moratorium on satellite launches in addition to their missile and nuclear tests, which has been a point of contention in past agreements and derailed negotiations in the past.

Two US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that while North Korea was expected to return the remains of soldiers in coming days, they had not yet been returned. "For example, these 46 sets are actually fragments of more than 70 individuals", the report said.

The decision followed a meeting between Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joe Dunford, and National Security Advisor John Bolton. "But we have to get him to keep it tough", Trump said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's tour of Singapore's iconic landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands required no compelling narratives to explain more concretely to him the alternative path his state could pursue.

The United States conducted joint recovery operations from 1996 to 2005.

More than 36,000 US troops died in the conflict, including those listed as missing in action.
