The United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC) was established in July 1953 at the end of the Korean War to supervise the Korean Armistice Agreement, and which has been operating ever since.[1]

History

Existing slow-moving talks towards an armistice were taken up by President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower after he visited United Nations Command forces in Korea. His diplomacy, along with the threat of a nuclear confrontation and the death of Stalin, convinced North Korea and China to sign the armistice and exchange prisoners of war. Most United Nations troops were then withdrawn. There was no peace treaty, and Korea remains divided along the Military Demarcation Line near the 38th parallel.[2]
