Sung Jong-Chol of the North Korean army shows the room where the 27 July 1953 armistice between North Korea and the United Nations was signed at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) at Panmanjon, 27 March 2005. The division of the Korean peninsula between the communist north and the capitalist south led to the 1950-53 Korean War with the two sides still technically at war ever since an armistice was signed in 1953 dividing the two Koreas.
