Kim leaves China as S. Korea urges 'concrete' plan on nukes

Kim Jong-un talks denuclearisation on visit to Beijing

"Our government hopes that the June 12 summit agreements between North Korea and the USA, including the repatriation of US soldier remains, will be implemented swiftly to achieve the goals of completely denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and establishing a peace regime", the ministry's spokesman Noh Kyu-duk said at a press briefing.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that North Korea has sent back the remains of 200 American soldiers who were killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

The motorcade traveled to Beijing's airport, where the limousine was spotted entering the charter flight terminal.

She sees his recent visits to China as underscoring efforts to achieve the economic strength he seeks.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said Wednesday that Seoul expected "to see concrete action by North Korea to live up to its complete denuclearization commitment" in exchange for security guarantees and joint efforts to establish lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula. "And China's leader also said this is a new chapter, if change you mind and stop and give up and dismantle the nuclear program and then you can be like us", Lee said.

The repatriation is part of an agreement Trump signed with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at their historic summit in Singapore last week.

A timeline for carrying out the process also remains unclear.

The Cold War-era allies, which fought side-by-side against US-led United Nations forces and South Korea in the 1950-1953 Korean War, have sought to fix ties strained by Pyongyang´s nuclear tests and Beijing´s support of subsequent United Nations sanctions.

The Justice Department is ordered, "to the extent practicable", to "prioritize the adjudication of cases involving detained families".

The official China Daily newspaper said in an editorial on Thursday ties between the two countries have "radiated new vitality", and that Kim's visits to the agricultural and traffic control centres showed the economy was a priority for him.

The North Korean leader, who was greeted by a military honour guard and cheering children at the Great Hall of the People on Tuesday, said he valued the "recently strengthened strategic cooperation" between the two countries.

Moon urged his northern neighbor to provide more detail on its goals Wednesday.

A source with intimate knowledge of North Korea said on Thursday that preparations are being made to launch the liaison office within the Gaeseong Industrial Complex on Independence Day, which is August 15th. US officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible.

Successive US administrations, including Trump's, have instead stated their ultimate policy goal is the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

China has suggested that the U.N. Security Council could consider easing sanctions if Pyongyang makes progress in diplomatic relations and denuclearization.

Building on the diplomatic momentum from the Singapore summit, South Korea and the USA announced Tuesday that joint military drills slated for August had been officially called off.

Kyodo said several other prefectures had also been notified of the imminent decision to halt the drills.
