Hall in Panmunjom, Witness to Great Victory in War
There is the hall, where the Korean Armistice Agreement (KAA) was signed, in Panmunjom 8 kilometers south of Kaesong City of the DPRK.
At 10:00 a.m. on July 27, Juche 42 (1953), the KAA was signed by chief delegates from the DPRK side and the U.S. side in the hall.
Meanwhile Clark, the then commander of the U.S. forces in the Far East and commander of the "UN Forces", scarcely put his tremulous signature on the agreement before saying that he felt everything was brought to naught and he thought his predecessors MacArthur and Ridgway might agree with him.
With the conclusion of the KAA, the Korean war ended in the victory of the Korean people.
The original written KAA is still preserved in the hall to tell the victory won by the Korean people in the war.
