thank you, chairman kim, for letting the remains come home. It will mean so much to their families, even after all these years.
"Today, the Chairman is fulfilling part of the commitment he made to the President to return our fallen American service members," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "We are encouraged by North Korea’s actions and the momentum for positive change."
"The United States owes a profound debt of gratitude to those American service members who gave their lives in service to their country and we are working diligently to bring them home," Sanders said. "It is a solemn obligation of the United States Government to ensure that the remains are handled with dignity and properly accounted for so their families receive them in an honorable manner."
