U.S. President Donald Trump talks with the media as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo looks on after a meeting with North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol at the White House

Sunday's meeting reportedly started at about 10 a.m. (1 a.m. GMT) at the inter-Korean border.

While U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently arranged working-level talks to handle the issue, the North Korean side elevated the dialogue to involve military generals.

Kim has since met South Korean President Moon Jae-in twice and also President Donald Trump last month in Singapore to discuss ways to resolve the nuclear standoff.

Singapore was the host of a historic summit between Trump and Kim last month when they agreed to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, without describing when and how it would occur.

USA forces brought some 100 wooden coffins into the DMZ last month, which will be used to transport the remains, according to Yonhap.

Pompeo had hoped to "fill in" details on how to dismantle the North's nuclear programme and recover the remains of US troops in his talks in Pyongyang this month.

The North's proposal of talks with the UNC, even though the UNC is led by the US, was seen as an attempt to use the meeting not only to discuss the repatriation of war remains but also other issues, such as a proposal to jointly declare an end to the Korean War.
