Some of the major players of the Korean Armistice photographed in the deserted village of Panmunjom for the truce signing, July 1953:
- South Korean negotiator Gen. Choi Duk Shin
- North Korean Communist Gen. Nam Il
- US Army Gen. Mark W. Clark
Though North Korea has denounced the truce various times during the last twenty years, it was only recently did they say they “no longer felt bound by the armistice agreement,” and reserved the right for a preemptive nuclear strike on the South. Even more recently, as of late March 2013, did the North state they would no longer honor any non-aggressive pacts with South Korea, going so far as shutting down both the border and the direct phone line between both the North and South leadership.
