Trump has sought to cast his summit with Kim as a major victory, although reports have suggested North Korea is continuing with its nuclear programme and promises of "denuclearisation" remain vague.

In it, Mr Kim says: "I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr President".

Honor guards of South Korea and the United Nations Command (UNC) carry boxes containing the remains of two servicemen killed during the 1950-53 Korean War, during a mutual repatriation ceremony at Seoul National Cemetery in Seoul, South Korea, Friday, July 13, 2018.

"We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back", Trump said at a Minnesota rally last month.

The Pentagon says Pyongyang has indicated several times they have as many as 200 sets of remains that could be those of United States soldiers who died in the war.

Earlier Thursday the North Koreans postponed a meeting with USA representatives at the inter-Korean border meant to discuss the repatriation of remains of American troops killed in the Korean War.

The United States said that as of May 30, 89 North Korean tankers had brought in refined petroleum products illicitly obtained in ship-to-ship transfers this year.

A confidential US report sent to a United Nations sanctions committee estimated that at least 759,793 barrels of oil products had been delivered to North Korea between January 1 and May 30, well above the annual quota set at 500,000 barrels.

It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the postponement.

Samsung Note 9 Release Date leaked

"The U.S. side had had discussions with the North with an aim to hold the talks as early as July 12, but it appeared that the North was not ready for the talks", the source told Yonhap News Agency on condition of anonymity.

One problem - no North Korean officials showed up, The New York Times reported.

The message came after Secretary of State Michael Pompeo returned from his third visit to North Korea.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo failed to make any significant progress in fleshing out the North's denuclearization process during his third visit to Pyongyang last week.

Pompeo gave a rosier readout.

Mr. Trump said he received "a very nice note" from Mr. Kim on Twitter. Recent reports suggest that the North has continued to expand infrastructure at nuclear and missile sites and that USA intelligence assesses that the North does not intend to fully denuclearize.

North Korean officials did not turn up to a Thursday meeting with the US military about repatriating the remains of the war dead, according to a USA official with knowledge of the situation.

Three days ago, Trump expressed his belief that his administration could reach an agreement with Pyongyang.

Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency, citing government sources, also reported that Pyongyang proposed holding them at the general-level, . strongly hinting that the North wants a senior USA military official present at the negotiations.
