"We picked up probably the two most important passengers on that plane: a man and woman who were 4 and 3 years old - little girl and little boy in the 1950s - when they sent their fathers, then young men, both pilots, both first lieutenants, both went to fight in the Korean War", he said on "Fox & Friends."
"We look forward to potentially pursuing [recovery] operations in North Korea in the future and we're very hopeful", he said.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis welcomed the development in U.S.
"North Korea knows that we're watching", Bennett told AFP. The clavicle and teeth offer some of the best comparison to the personnel file the Department of Defense keeps of missing servicemen, said Cole, author of the book "POW/MIA Accounting: Searching for America's Missing Servicemen in the Soviet Union".
Mr Trump has insisted that progress has been made since the meeting...
Pence on Wednesday met with Adm. Phil Davidson at the headquarters of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii.
The remains were then moved in gray vans to an airfield where US and South Korean soldiers loaded them one by one into transport planes.
Besides reducing the amount of troops and weapons they are armed with, McBride said talks about the disputed sea border between North and South Korea could also be on the agenda.
"The Remains of American Servicemen will soon be leaving North Korea and heading to the United States!" It said that imagery collected by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in recent weeks also pointed to "ongoing work on at least one Hwasong-15" at the Sanumdong site.
North Korea is also reportedly still secretly operating the Kangson uranium-enrichment facility.
The meeting, their second since last month, held in the border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone (DMZ), was created to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April in which the leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tensions and halt "all hostile acts".
After that meeting, the USA president declared North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat and there was cautious optimism that the secretive state could call time on its missile programme.
There is no indication that North Korea is developing new technology, but if confirmed the latest intelligence would raise doubts over the broad commitment Kim Jong-un made to denuclearisation at his summit with President Trump last month.
Dr. John Byrd, director of scientific analysis for DPAA, told reporters Wednesday at Osan that the agency has completed a two-day field forensic review and determined that the remains are human and "are likely to be American remains". "By doing so, however, he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets' visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable all the more".
Kim "put it in black and white: the North Koreans are going to mass produce missiles and nuclear weapons".
Nauert said that North Korean officials would be at some of the same meetings as State Department officials in the area.
