Korean Exhumations

TOKYO () -- North Korea said Monday that starting next month it and the United States will conduct three joint exhumations of remains of U.S. soldiers who went missing in action during the 1950 to '53 Korean War.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency, or KCNA, said bilateral talks on the exhumations took place in New York from June 25 to 27.

"They agreed to conduct three rounds of joint exhumation in Unsan county, North Phyongan province, in July, September and October," KCNA said in the report, which was monitored in Tokyo.

There are 8,100 U.S. troops still listed as missing in the Korean War.
