North Korean officials reportedly did not show up Thursday at a scheduled meeting with U.S. officials to discuss returning the remains of American soldiers, and instead suggested talking with United Nations military leaders about the issue.

Yonhap News in South Korea reported that North Korea asked the United Nations Command to hold “general-level military talks” about returning the remains of American troops killed in the Korean War.

A source told Yonhap that North Korea “wants a U.S. general to appear at the table to quickly finalize the repatriation issue.” If the U.S. agrees to the meeting, it would mark the first time that North Korea has engaged in military talks with the United Nations military body since 2009.
