Pan Mun Jom Overview

Panmunjom is not the location of the JSA (Joint Security Area), of often mentioned. But it's the name of a former village where the North Koreans, the Chinese and the United Nation delegations held talks to end the Korean War.

The talks eventually lead into an armistice, not peace, on the 27th of july, 1953. South Korea never signed the papers, so technically speaking both countries are still at war.
