Korean Armistice Pact, Panmunjom, Korea, July 1953

Taken on 1953-07-27

The Korean War ended in an armistice rather than a formal peace treaty, meaning that the war never ended and both the ROK and DPRK each continue to claim sovereignty over the Korean Peninsula in its entirety. Panmunjom, seen above, continues to serve as a neutral site for negotiations between the two nations to this day.
