Laos, US to locate remains of missing service personnel

 For 30 years the Lao government and people have been helping the families of American service personnel who went missing in action during the Indochina War to track down their remains.

The US government has signaled its deep appreciation of the cooperation provided by the Lao government in this work, which has been carried out in accordance with Laos' humanitarian policy.

A consultancy meeting on bilateral cooperation between Laos and the United States of America on the mission to locate the remains of American service personnel in Laos took place in Vientiane on February 26.

The meeting was attended by the director of the Europe-America Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,  Southam Sakhonnignom, and US Ambassador to Laos Karen Stewart.

Lao and US officials expressed their satisfaction with the value of the mission, and assessed the good and weak points involved in this work so that any issues could be addressed and resolved.

At the meeting it was reported that 575 American solders went missing in action during the war in Laos.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, during the 30 years of cooperation between the Lao and US governments in the search for missing American service personnel, the remains of 261 people have been located so far.
