U.S., North Korea Discuss War Dead as Nuclear Dispute Simmers

U.S. and North Korean officials met Sunday to discuss the return of remains of American soldiers killed almost seven decades ago during the Korean War, with the talks offering a chance to ease tensions between the two sides as they argue over disarmament issues.

The talks were “productive and cooperative and resulted in firm commitments,” Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said in a statement. Working-level meetings between officials from the two countries will begin Monday to coordinate the next steps, including the transfer of remains already collected and the search for an estimated 5,300 Americans, Pompeo said.

The meeting began around 10 a.m. Seoul time at the border village of Panmunjom, and it was unclear how long the talks would last, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported, citing unidentified government and U.S. military officials.
