The article contrasts with the media narrative following the release of North Korea's statement that the negotiations took a turn for the worse during the sit-down. But given the harsh statements from Pyongyang following Pompeo's trip last week - the North Korean Foreign Ministry blasted Washington's stance on denuclearization as "gangster-like" - it's possible that it's gonna be a long, long time.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meet in the truce village of Panmunjom inside the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, South Korea, April 27, 2018.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked the head of USA intelligence to assess whether North Korea's posture and actions regarding denuclearization match up with the Trump administration's claims.

"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". "They didn't show." The newspaper identifies the negotiators waiting for the North Koreans as "Department of Defense and United Nations Command" officials. The U.S. also risks giving the North Koreans leverage to continue diplomacy and drag out disarmament talks.

The US military has since announced that 100 wooden coffins have been moved to the inter-Korean border in preparation.

Both sides were expected to discuss the timeline and ways in which remains of American soldiers would be returned at the meeting.

Trump also announced that the US would suspend "war games" with South Korea.

It would be the first such repatriation in more than a decade after a joint search effort was halted amid rising tensions over the North's nuclear weapons program.

An estimated 30,000 U.S. soldiers died in the 1950-53 Korean war.

That number includes 7,702 who are missing in action, with an estimated 5,300 believed to have been lost in the North, according to the Hawaii-based DPAA, which oversees the effort.

But Trump tweeted Monday that he has "confidence" that Kim would honour the denuclearisation "contract" they signed at the summit and accused China - the isolated North's powerful neighbour and ally - of seeking to undermine the deal.

But he also acknowledged that a lot of work remained to be done, including on the issue of setting a timeline for denuclearization.
