U.S. officials reportedly got stood up by their North Korean counterparts at the Korean DMZ Thursday.

The U.S. officials were there to discuss the return of remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean War.

The Trump administration has been preparing for the return of 200 sets of remains since last month and has reportedly sent around 100 transport cases to the DMZ.

Thursday's no-show comes less than a week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited North Korea to discuss denuclearization. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reportedly blew off Pompeo to visit a potato farm.

CNN reports there was no explanation from the North about why its officials didn't show. The Pentagon believes around 5,300 American soldiers killed in North Korea remain unrecovered.
