United States recovery efforts in the country were halted in 2005 as tensions heightened between the two countries. North Korea has already returned the remains of over 200 USA soldiers.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may bring back the remains when he visits North Korea, according to Korean news reports. The North even issued special anti-U.S. postage stamps.

But while both work to achieve the vague language of Kim's promise to "completely denuclearise the Korean peninsula", America's top USA diplomat refused to put a timeline on negotiations with North Korea contradicting a senior defence official who said Washington would soon present a timeline to North Korea with "specific asks".
"There are understandings that have been put together prior to the summit, some that took place when the president was in Singapore that I think put us on the right trajectory so that we can build out a framework for success", Pompeo said.
Mattis, at the start of a week-long trip that includes stops in China, South Korea and Japan, said Trump's guidance on suspending military drills applied not just to the major Freedom Guardian exercise in August but also to two smaller Korean Marine Exchange Program training exercises.
