China and US Military Cooperate on Finding Missing Personnel

BEIJING, Feb. 29 — In a recent press conference, Chinese Defense Spokesperson Senior Colonel Zhang Xiaogang highlighted the ongoing cooperation between China and the United States in searching for the remains of missing American military personnel in China. He stated that the Chinese side has been committed to the humanitarian spirit and has made practical progress in assisting the US military in this endeavor.

According to Zhang, a delegation from the US Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) recently visited Guangxi and Hunan provinces in China to conduct a site survey in search of the remains of missing American personnel from World War II. This marks the first on-site survey conducted by both countries since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

When asked about the progress in archival cooperation between the two militaries, Zhang explained that with the assistance of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the CMC Office for International Military Cooperation, and the relevant PLA departments responsible for archives management, the US DPAA team was able to carry out the site survey successfully.

“This is a significant step forward in our cooperation with the United States in locating the remains of missing personnel in China,” Zhang noted.

The collaboration between China and the US on this issue has been ongoing for several years, with both countries working together to fulfill their humanitarian responsibilities. The recent site survey in Guangxi and Hunan provinces is a testament to the commitment of both nations to honoring and remembering the sacrifices made by American military personnel during World War II.
