Laos hands over American servicemen’s remains to US
Vientiane (VNA) - Lao Deputy Foreign Minister Phongsavath Boupha handed over some sets of remains of American servicemen who were killed during the war in Laos to US Ambassador to Laos Patricia M. Haslach at the airport of southern Savannakhet province on Feb. 15.

The remains were found during the recent search in Savannakhet, Saravane, Vientiane and Xiangkhouang provinces.

The hand-over once again reflected Laos’s humanitarian policy toward the families of US servicemen who were killed or listed as missing in action during the war in Laos and was a response to the US government’s proposal.

Since 1985, Laos has returned 192 sets of remains to the US.--Enditem
