Some have called the Korean War the "forgotten war".

U.S. President Donald Trump received a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as the two continue to discuss Pyongyang's commitment at a recent Singapore summit to rid itself of nuclear weapons, but no second meeting is now planned, the White House said on Thursday.

Arriving in Singapore ahead of a security forum, Pompeo said that "we can see we still have a ways to go to achieve the ultimate outcome we're looking" for when it comes to North Korea. Today, our boys are coming home.

If the United States and its allies move too quickly and make irreversible moves, then fail, such results will only benefit Kim Jong Un, Harris said.

More than 7,700 USA troops remain unaccounted for from the Korea War.

Results from the review indicate that the "remains are what North Korea said they were", John Byrd, director of analysis for the U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, told reporters at Osan.

Sanders said no second meeting is "locked in" as a follow-up to the Singapore summit in June, but they remain open to discussions. He declined to disclose the name on the tag but said two family members had been notified and are expected to be in the Washington, D.C., area next week with family groups for a detailed briefing from DPAA on the next steps in identifying the remains.

Byrd cautioned that the 55 boxes did not necessarily equate to the remains of 55 individuals. USA officials say they have already contacted the family of a service member whose dog tag was returned.
