President Trump confirmed Wednesday that the North Korean government has already returned the remains of 200 American soldiers killed in the Korean War; telling a crowd of supporters the recovered bodies were being “sent back today.”

“We got back our great fallen heroes, the remains sent back today, already 200 got sent back,” Trump told a rally in Minnesota this week.

The confirmation comes after months of back-and-forth negotiations between US and North Korean authorities ahead of June’s historic Singapore Summit.

According to the Pentagon, more than 36,500 US soldiers died in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953.

Approximately 7,700 remain unaccounted for.
