    China announced on Sunday the names of six Chinese soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War who were identified by DNA.

    It is the first time that the identities of unknown martyrs of the Chinese People's Volunteers were confirmed through DNA technology, according to Wang Shengqi, a researcher with the medical research institute under the Academy of Military Sciences of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.

    The remains of a total of 599 soldiers have been sent back from the ROK and buried in the Shenyang cemetery since 2014, including the six recently identified.

    Relatives of the fallen heroes were invited to a ceremony held Sunday afternoon by the Ministry of Veterans Affairs at the cemetery of Korean War martyrs in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province.

    More than 200 people, including Korean War veterans, attended the ceremony.

    The Chinese People's Volunteers fought with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's army in the Korean War against the army of the Republic of Korea and U.S.-led UN forces between 1950 and 1953.
