The Singapore summit gave hope Tuesday to the families of the more than 7,000 USA service members missing from the Korean War that they will finally get an accounting.

But Panetta, who previously worked for President Barack Obama, said there are a "huge number of issues" that will actually involve the denuclearization of North Korea, which owns an estimated 20 to 60 nuclear weapons with about 141 sites that can produce them. "I really believe that".

Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier said they appreciated Trump's comments. He was brought back to the U.S.in June 2017 only to die a few days later.

"When the South-North relations improve, we will push first for the recovery of remains in the Demilitarized Zone", the 154-mile-long, 2.5-mile-wide area separating the two Koreas, Moon said.
