For more than 70 years, the Korean Peninsula has been tragically divided at the 38th parallel. The Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) was established by the Korean Armistice Agreement signed on July 27th, 1953, assigning two nations on either side, Switzerland and Sweden for ROK and Czechoslovakia and Poland for DPRK. Despite many efforts to open a path to peace and reconciliation, the two Koreas are still technically at war and the conflict remains frozen.
