A U.S. Marine stands at attention as caskets containing the remains of American servicemen from the Korean War handed over by North Korea arrive at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S., August 1, 2018.

The White House says President Donald Trump has received a letter from North Korea's Kim Jong Un, following up on the two leaders' June summit in Singapore.

The White House did not provide details on the specific content of the letter, which was received Wednesday.

The remains of dozens of soldiers, presumed to be Americans who died in the Korean War, arrived in Pearl Harbor on Wednesday local time.

Mr. Trump previously shared a similar "very nice" letter he received from Kim last month where the dictator highlighted "epochal progress" in U.S-North Korea relations.
