WASHINGTON,  - North Korea has offered to meet an American delegation on Sunday to discuss the repatriation of remains of soldiers killed in the Korean War, a US State Department spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said North Korea's Vice Chairman Kim Yong Chol had agreed in earlier talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet on or about July 12 in Panmunjom with an American delegation over the remains. That meeting did not materialize.

"Midday today they contacted us and offered to meet on Sunday," Nauert said in a statement. "We will be ready."
