Seventeen sets of remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts have been retrieved from Laos and Cambodia where they laid down their lives during wars.

The retrieval was part of the search campaign during the 2013-24 dry season carried out by the K53 team of the Military Command of the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum.

On April 29, the provincial Military Command reported that the remains included 15 found in Cambodia’s Rattanakiri province and two in Lao provinces of Champassak and Attapeu.

They will be laid to rest in Vietnam as long as related procedures in Laos and Cambodia are completed.-VNa
