Vice President Mike Pence participated in a flag presentation to the Korean War Veterans Memorial Foundation today. The American flag he presented was flown during the repatriation ceremony of recently recovered remains of presumed U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean War.
The vice president accepted the remains at a ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii last month, a request made by President Trump during his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. 55 cases of war remains were retrieved from North Korea as part of the agreement.
"This flag was among those flags that graced the cases of some 55 remains of fallen American heroes and it was my great honor to receive it," said Pence.
Pence welcomed Kim's latest commitment to allow nuclear inspectors to testing sites and to permanently dismantle the North's main nuclear complex as "good news" and said the administration looks forward to further progress along the Korean Peninsula.
