About 5,300 were lost in what is now North Korea.

The Pentagon said last week it was considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea to search for additional remains. He said numerous remains appear to have come from a village associated with the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, a harrowing fight against Chinese forces in late 1950 that claimed thousands of American lives. It was later revealed that North Korea didn't actually hand over any remains.

"We have remains that look to have been in a state of preservation consistent with coming from the Korean War era", he said, and materials provided with the remains included USA -issued military equipment such as canteens and buttons.

EDaily reported the top USA envoy to Seoul said that hasty measures are not the answer.

There is "no meeting planned", Sanders told reporters. US officials say they have already contacted the family of a service member whose dog tag was returned. DPAA Director Kelly McKeague told reporters that the family members had been warned that that the presence of a dog tag does not mean that the service member's remains are among the boxes.

His comments came hours after Vice President Mike Pence presided over a ceremony in the state of Hawaii marking the repatriation of the 55 sets of remains to US soil. "This direction is without a doubt correct", he said.

"Given the fact that the North Koreans reaffirmed that commitment to Secretary Pompeo last month, we fully expect that there might be an environment in which case they would be open to sitting down to negotiate", he said.
