U.S. Soldiers’ Remains In North Korea In Limbo

Wochit Headline News - Saturday, 12 August 2017  (1 week ago)
North Korea’s government has offered to turn over the decadesold remains of as many as 120 U.S. soldiers. The offer could provide a rare opportunity for cooperation between the two countries locked in a tense nuclear standoff. The Trump administration has declined to make an exception to the United States’ refusal to engage in military or diplomatic relations with the outlaw regime. This policy is keeping with both the Obama and George W. Bush administrations before it. Families of U.S. soldiers who went missing during the Korean War between 1950 and 1953 made a new appeal this week to President Donald Trump. They are seeking permission to retrieve the troops’ remains.
