Headline: China to Give US Access to POW Records

China is set to give the US access to sensitive military records which will help answer questions about thousands of US soldiers that went missing during the Korean War and other Cold War conflicts. As a result of the Korean War, which lasted between 1950 and 1953, 8,100 US soldiers are still classified as missing in action (MIA) or as a prisoner of war (POW). During the war, China fought with the North, managing POW camps, while killing and capturing Americans, eventually pushing the US out of the North.

Since the end of the conflict, the US has been urging China to open its archives, in the hopes of locating American remains, or answering questions for the families of missing soldiers. Under the deal which will be announced Friday, Chinese archivists will do searches and provide information to the Pentagon. While the US won't have direct access to the files, the limited opening is a positive step forward for US-Chinese relations.
