A day after U.S. President Donald Trump stated there was "no time limit" attached to the dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear weapons program, . his top diplomat Mike Pompeo echoed his boss' remarks at a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, . saying the negotiations "may take some time". "We have no speed limit".

The repatriation of remains of U.S. troops killed during the Korean War should begin shortly, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday (Jul 18), starting a process agreed by President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The White House denied that U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that Russian Federation was no longer targeting the United States, saying his answer "no" was about taking questions not about potential interference in U.S. elections.

Since the meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Kim on 12 June, there has been little reported progress towards denuclearisation.

"... Russian Federation has agreed to help with North Korea, where relationships with us are very good and the process is moving along", Trump wrote.

"Discussions are ongoing and they're going very, very well", Mr Trump told reporters in Washington.

The U.S. plans to send cases for transportation to the demilitarized zone, where North Korea will place the remains. "We're just going through the process".
