Japan to search for WWII remains in Burma

For the first time in more than 30 years, Japan will be allowed to conduct a sweeping search for the remains of Imperial Japanese Army soldiers who died in Burma during World War II, according to Asahi Shimbun. The project, which is expected to go ahead by March, will reportedly take place in the three regions where the remains have been found: northern Sagaing region, Chin State, and Karenni State.
