Upon their discovery between 2019 and this year, the remains were collected and returned to the country by the K93 team and the K90 team operating in Military Zone 9.

Speaking at the ceremony, Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Binh expressed his profound gratitude to the martyrs, all of whom sacrificed their lives for peace and freedom enjoyed by all present-day citizens.

Binh went on to thank Vietnamese authorities along with the Cambodian provinces for creating favourable conditions for teams to facilitate the search.
