The remains of more Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) martyrs killed in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea will be returned to China from the Republic of Korea (ROK) from September 14 to 17.

On Wednesday morning, a Y-20 military transport aircraft took off from an airport in north China on a mission to bring back the remains of the soldiers to the Chinese soil.

It will be the ninth repatriation of the remains of CPV martyrs following the signing of a handover agreement between the two countries. Between 2014 and 2021, the remains of 825 soldiers were returned to China from the ROK, according to official figures.

A J-20 stealth fighter jet will escort the Y-20 aircraft on Sept. 16 when the remains of martyrs return to China, said Shen Jinke, a spokesperson for the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force.
