South Korea's defense minister, Jeong Kyeong-doo, has vowed to do his best to recover as many remains of soldiers who fought in the Korean War.
The pledge came after he visited a site in the DMZ today where a body believed to be of either an American or French soldier was recently found.
He was accompanied by U.S. Forces Korea commander General Robert Abrams and officials from the U.S. and French embassies.
The body was excavated at Arrowhead Ridge, the site of one of the war's fiercest battles.
The defense ministry said it's the first time during this excavation project, which started in April, that remains believed to be of a soldier from the U.S. or France were discovered.
An estimated one-hundred UN troops were killed there, with around 20 believed to still be buried.
