North Korea's Kim Jong Un and his counterpart from the South, Moon Jae In, will hold talks for a third time next month. The upcoming meeting comes amid doubts that the North will fulfill its pledge to denuclearize.
Pyongyang has accused US diplomats of undermining President Trump and "making desperate attempts" to intensify sanctions against the North. Both sides agreed to seek "denuclearization" at a historic summit in June.
Photographs from US spy satellites suggest North Korea is building new missiles, reports say. Activity was detected at the same factory responsible for the country's first ballistic missiles capable of reaching the US.
The return of the remains of US soldiers from the 1950-1953 Korean War was agreed at the June summit between the North Korean and US leaders. There is no reason to doubt they relate to war losses, the US believes.
