New Delhi [India], August 2 : United States President Donald Trump thanked North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for beginning the process of repatriation of remains of US soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.
“Thank you to Chairman Kim Jong-un for keeping your word & starting the process of sending home the remains of our great and beloved missing fallen! I am not at all surprised that you took this kind action. Also, thank you for your nice letter – l look forward to seeing you soon!” he tweeted.
This comes after the return of as many as 55 US servicemen’s remains from the Korean War.
