DPRK: US responsible for failure to retrieve remains

By Agencies in Pyongyang and Seoul ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-10-14 08:06:52

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea rebutted the US explanation for suspending recovery of US soldiers' remains in the country, saying on Monday that the suspension was due to the US "brigandish hostile policy".

On Sept 19, US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel blamed the DPRK for the failure to resume unearthing the remains of the US troops killed in the 1950-53 Korean War when he addressed a commemorative ceremony for POWs.

A spokesman for the Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army said that it was the United States that suspended the unearthing of the remains.
