    • Korean Armistice Agreement - 27 July 1953

      On July 27, 1953, after three years of brutal fighting, the Korean War came to a halt with the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement. The agreement was signed by representatives of the United Nations Command, the Korean People’s Army, and the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army. The agreement marked the end of hostilities and established a ceasefire, but it did not formally end the war or resolve the political issues that had sparked it.

      No formal peace treaty was signed, and normalized relations were not restored. The armistice established the Military Demarcation Line and the DMZ

      The sign that bears the signatures of the armistice negotiators is a symbol of both peace and division. It is a reminder of the sacrifices made by millions of soldiers and civilians on both sides, as well as the hope for a peaceful settlement and reunification of Korea. The sign is currently displayed at the Korean War Museum in Seoul, South Korea, where visitors can learn more about the history and consequences of the war.
