Dr Christine Ahn, founder and international coordinator of Women Cross DMZ, was very clear about the important role of women in peace work and negotiations for the future. On 19 July 1953, the delegates agreed on all the issues on the agenda. [30] On July 27, 1953, at 10:00 a.m. .m, the ceasefire was signed by Nam Il, APA and VPA delegate, and William K. Harrison Jr., UNC delegate. [2] Twelve hours after the signing of the document, all arrangements approved in the ceasefire have begun. [31] The agreement provided for monitoring by an international commission. The Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) was established to prevent reinforcements from being transferred to Korea, either additional military personnel or new weapons, and inspection teams of NNSC members from Czechoslovakia, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland operated throughout Korea. [13] There is also a four-party format under which the parties to the 1953 ceasefire – the two Koreas, China and the United States – could sign a peace agreement. But in that case, South Korea`s legal status would become problematic, with the late South Korean President Rhee Syngman, who hoped to achieve unification through a northward advance, refusing to sign the ceasefire agreement. But of course, South Korea is a directly concerned party and it is unreasonable to question its legal status. In fact, the only representative of a sovereign state to have signed the ceasefire was North Korea. The U.S.

representative signed on behalf of the United Nations, and Chinese General Peng Dehui signed as commander of the People`s Army, not as an official of the Chinese government. Of course, there has already been talk of a formal peace agreement, so there are reasons to contain expectations. But these previous discussions are also hopeful. They mean there are precedents to build on, including a „declaration of peace“ made at a 2000 summit between Kim Jong-il, then leader of North Korea, and Kim Dae-jung, then president of the South. However, a few days later, senior official Kim ignored his army and canceled his plan to deploy more troops along the border. With his diplomacy, Moon appointed a new national security team to join the North and get the peace process back on track. In 2013, North Korea argued that the ceasefire should be a transitional measure and that North Korea had made a series of proposals to replace the ceasefire with a peace treaty, but the United States. .
