Nationalities will be determined when the remains are tested in the US. "But we've seen this before, and that was words on a paper and promises made, so now we have to see action", he said.
In a joint statement at last week's summit, Kim pledged to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for USA security guarantees.
A former US nuclear negotiator Joseph R. DeTrani, on Friday said, the decision taken by Seoul and Washington to suspend military exercise is a powerful confidence-building measure with North Korea.
A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research released Thursday finds that 55 percent of Americans approve of Trump's diplomacy with North Korea, up from 42 percent in March and 34 percent last October. The transfer date and location have not been finalized, the officials said, but they said the administration is ready to receive the remains if the North Koreans decide to move quickly.
The backdoor could open further as the USA and the North proceed with denuclearization talks. The U.S. has long looked to China to use its influence with North Korea to bring it to negotiations, but the visit comes as ties between Beijing and Washington are being tested by a major trade dispute.

A bigger cause for concern is that Trump, who now seems to have a two-track approach - military and economic - toward what he had called "maximum pressure", may ease his position on economic sanctions, too.
This week, the United States and South Korea said they were suspending planning for August's Freedom Guardian exercise. "We advise the USA side to return to reason, and stop words and actions that harm itself and others".
Given Trump's unpredictability and abruptness, no one can guarantee that he will not seek to ease sanctions for unconvincing reasons.
USA officials expect the remains to be handed over to United Nations Command in South Korea at Osan Air Base near Seoul then transferred to Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii.
As experts highlighted, it should be noted that Kim never mentioned CVID, only repeating a "phased, synchronized" approach toward denuclearization.
Also, on Saturday, the USA military began moving caskets to North Korea for the recovery of some remains, the U.N. Command in South Korea said in a statement.
Dismantling the core elements of maximum pressure is something that should be done only after - or simultaneously at least - with the dismantlement of the North's nuclear capability.
