North Korea could return US soldiers' remains on Friday

North Korea is about to return some remains of US service members killed in the Korean War, a ­report said Wednesday.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency said the remains could be returned on Friday, the 65th anniversary of the Korean armistice agreement that resulted in a cease-fire to the 1950-53 war.

“North Korea recently took two truckloads of wooden boxes to be used for the remains repatriation. It’s expected to hand over the remains on July 27 as agreed upon,” a source told Yonhap.

Wooden boxes bearing the remains have been ­sitting for weeks in the border ­village of Panmunjom.

The remains will be airlifted to a forensic lab in Hawaii.

Returning the remains was one of the agreements struck between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their June summit in Singapore.
