Who Forced A Peace Agreement In Korea

Moreover, under the Lee administration, scenarios involving the sudden collapse of North Korea and admission to the South were used as the basis for policy toward the North. This violated Article 1 of the South-North Basic Agreement and was nothing less than a rejection of the peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. Even if North Korea`s political regime were to collapse, the right decision would be for the United Nations to conduct a humanitarian intervention or send peacekeepers. The combined use of South Korean and U.S. forces to stabilize North Korean territory could constitute an invasion or occupation under international law. Moreover, America`s failure to stabilize Iraq and Afghanistan underscores the fundamental limits of such military intervention.
