South Korea's National Security Council will look for ways to expand cooperation with other countries on war remains excavation projects in the Demilitarized Zone.
The current administration has been working to retrieve the remains of soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War from Arrowhead Ridge, one of the fiercest battlefields inside the DMZ separating the two Koreas since April 2019.
It was in line with the September 19 military agreement reached between the two Koreas in Pyeongyang the year before.
But the South has had to work alone as the North has stonewalled calls for joint work.
Their work at the Arrowhead Ridge came to a conclusion today and the military will now move to the nearby White Horse Ridge in the latter half of the year.
