Around 361 Chinese cultural relics lost to the United States will return to their home country.

The National Cultural Heritage Administration and the FBI signed agreement for repatriation of the cultural relics on Thursday (local time) in Indianapolis, Indiana.

It is the third and so far the biggest-scale return of lost cultural relics from the United States to China since 2009, when the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding on restriction of import Chinese cultural relics into the US.
