The Korean War,
and a Panorama of 70 Years

At 4 a.m. on Sunday, June 25, 1950, North Korea launched a surprise attack against South Korea to ignite the Korean War, a tragic fratricidal conflict.
70 years have passed since then.
The sound of gunfire and cries of victims stopped long ago, but the pain of national division still remains.
While South and North Korea have feuded and clashed with each other occasionally, they have never given up hope for a peaceful, unified Korea.
Let’s look back on the paths the two Koreas have walked over the past seven decades.

Seoul’s US Amb.: S. Korea, US, Japan to Strategize on N. Korea’s Threats Main News Seoul’s US Amb.: S. Korea, US, Japan to Strategize on N. Korea’s Threats South Korean Ambassador to the U.S. Cho Hyun-dong said Seoul, Washington and Tokyo are set to strategize on responses to North Korea's threats and other regional geopolitical risks at this week's meeting of their national security advisers in Seoul. At the Trans-Pacific Dialogue forum hosted by the Chey Institute for Advanced Studies in Washington on Monday, Cho said the three sides are making efforts to advance cooperation following the Camp David summit in August. Citing growing threats from the North, including its rapidly advancing nuclear and missile programs, aggressive nuclear posture and belligerent rhetoric, the envoy said a collective response would be only natural to better protect regional safety and security. Cho addressed the regime’s recent spy satellite launch as he noted that Pyongyang succeeded after two failed attempts in May and August with its third launch that followed a summit in September between regime leader Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Pyongyang's illicit cyber activities, the ambassador said the three countries are seeking to bolster cooperation in response to false information disseminated by foreign agencies, including those in China, Russia, and North Korea. South Korea's National Security Advisor Cho Tae-yong and his U.S. and Japanese counterparts, Jake Sullivan and Takeo Akiba, respectively, are set to hold three-way talks on Friday and Saturday. 2023-12-05
Foreign Ministry Urges N. Korea to Stop Accusations, Provocations Main News Foreign Ministry Urges N. Korea to Stop Accusations, Provocations The foreign ministry has reiterated that any launch by North Korea using ballistic missile technology is a clear violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. A ministry official said on Sunday that the international community strongly condemns the North’s launch of a military spy satellite, rejecting the North’s repeated claims that its launch was the country's legitimate and just right as a sovereign state. Regarding Pyongyang’s claimed right to space development, the official said that the right is reserved only for countries that abide by international law and maintain global peace and security. The official said that with the prohibited launches, the regime already failed to comply with the Security Council decisions under the UN Charter, as well as the Outer Space Treaty that stipulates the use and exploration of space for maintaining international peace and security. The official also dismissed North Korea’s criticism that Seoul’s launch of its own spy satellite is a violation of the 2018 inter-Korean military agreement, stressing that it is a justifiable measure that complies with the standards and does not pose a threat to international peace and security. The official said that it is clear which side is causing instability on the Korean Peninsula by continuing with nuclear and missile development and provocations and threatening nuclear attacks. The official then urged the North to immediately stop making false accusations and provocations against South Korea’s legitimate actions and to return to the path of denuclearization. 2023-12-04
