A U.S. military ship has arrived in North Korea to support the hunt for the remains of soldiers missing in action from the Korean War.

Adm. Robert Willard, chief of the U.S. Pacific Command, said Tuesday that the ship is unloading equipment at Nampho, a port city west of the capital, Pyongyang.

The United States and North Korea agreed in October to restart the search for thousands of American service members, a sign of easing tensions between the wartime enemies.

The program is to begin formally on on Thursday, with a U.S. advance team arriving in Pyongyang later in the month. The search was suspended in 2005 during tensions over North Korea's nuclear program. The U.S. cited misgivings about the security of its personnel.
