HANOI – The return of remains of U.S. troops who went missing during the 1950-53 Korean War could help build trust between North Korea and the United States, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday.
In a message posted to his Twitter account, Pompeo said Vietnam had handed over the remains of two U.S. military personnel before he arrived in Hanoi on Sunday.
“This same act 45 (years) ago built trust between our nations. Today we have a strong relationship,” Pompeo said on Twitter. “DPRK committed to repatriate remains as well.”
