Inside the Beltway
A U.S. delegation journeys to Bangkok on Tuesday to begin negotiations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to resume recovery of the remains of American servicemen missing in action from the Korean War. More than 7,900 people remain unaccounted for.
Robert J. Newberry, deputy assistant secretary of defense for POW/missing personnel affairs, leads the team, which includes representatives from the State Department, the Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office, the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, the U.S. Pacific Command and the United Nations Command-Korea.
“Accounting for Americans missing in action is a stand-alone humanitarian matter, not tied to any other issue between the two countries,” a statement says.
