White House: Pres. Trump receives new letter from Kim Jong Un

WATCH: US welcomes home possible 'forgotten war' remains

McKeague said North Korea did not receive any payment for the transfer this week.

The Pentagon said last week it was considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea to search for additional remains.

Flag draped transfer cases with the remains of American soldiers repatriated from North Korea are seen during a repatriation ceremony after arriving at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 1, 2018.

Harris, who held a news conference for local media on Thursday at the US ambassador's residence, is making his views known only a few weeks after arriving in South Korea.

Wit this happening on the same week the regime returned home, the remains of fallen American soldiers.

A star government witness will be Richard Gates, a former deputy Trump campaign chairman and former Manafort business associate. Mikuska said agents arrived at around 6 a.m. and knocked three times before entering the condominium with a key.

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

After attending the Singapore meeting, the North's Ri will head to Iran for an official visit, North Korea's official news agency KCNA reported. USA officials say they have already contacted the family of a service member whose dog tag was returned. 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. "This direction is without a doubt correct", he said.

The lab will begin by taking DNA samples from the remains and checking to see whether they match those of other remains in the inventory or those that family members of missing service members have provided.

The country also agreed to return the remains of Americans killed in the Korean War. "But we'll see what happens", Trump said.

Investigators will also use dental records and chest x-rays to further analyze the remains for a possible identification.

The source added: 'She's amazed by what's happened but is taking what he says with a grain of salt. Oh, he also said that Meghan would be better off if he was dead.

Byrd cautioned that the 55 boxes did not necessarily equate to the remains of 55 individuals.

To work on the additional remains the team of DPAA researchers assigned to identifying the remains of Korean War missing will almost double in size from five to nine.

Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to send a positive note to North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

"No caveats, no conditions set". The United States formally welcomed home the remains at a ceremony on Aug 1. It marks the beginning of a long process to identify all the remains. He said the remains are "good candidates to be missing Americans from the Korean War", where thousands died on battlefields and in prisoner-of-war camps during the 1950-53 conflict and remain officially unaccounted for. "I can say that the letters addressed their commitment from their joint statement that was made at the Singapore summit and they're going to continue working together towards complete and total denuclearization".

About 7,700 US soldiers are listed as missing from the conflict, and 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea.

They said he was embezzling money and later lied about it to investigators - before agreeing to flip and testify against Manafort. Gates pleaded guilty in February and agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation on "all matters" they deem relevant.
