Trump: Pyongyang Has Returned 200 ‘Fallen Heroes’ from Korean War

President Donald Trump announced at a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday that North Korea has returned the remains of 200 U.S. troops who went missing during the Korean War between 1950 and 1953.

“We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back,” said Trump. This would represent the bulk of the American remains North Korea has admitted to possessing.

Four administration officials clarified to CNN that “planning is underway to receive the remains from North Korea in the coming days, although the actual transfer date and location have not been finalized.” The U.S. is ready to take the remains in the next few days if North Korea agrees to provide them so quickly.

The officials said it would also take some time to verify that the remains are those of American soldiers. They did not know if additional identification such as dog tags or identification cards would be provided. If not, verification will have to rely on DNA analysis according to very strict protocols observed by the U.S. military for missing soldiers.

“When the transfer happens, it is expected that North Korean officials will turn them over to United Nations representatives at the DMZ, which marks the border between North and South Korea. The UN at that point will turn them over to US military personnel for a brief ceremony,” CNN reported.
