U.S. Seeking Information from Chinese on Missing Korean War Soldiers

Feb. 14, 1962 - State Department authorities said today the U.S. was still trying to get an accounting from Communist China of American troops missing in the Korean War. The inquiries were said to be a regular item in the talks held periodically between the U.S. and Communist Chinese Ambassadors in Warsaw. The State Department says it has no evidence that any of the 389 missing are still alive. But the U.S. position is that the Beijing regime should tell whatever it knows about what happened to them. This the Chinese have repeatedly refused to do. Four other Americans are known to be alive and in Red Chinese jails. The U.S. has sought their release, also without success. Pictured below are American P.O.W.’s during the Korean War.
