“Remember, once you get to The Demilitarized Zone, there is no more De.”David Palmer, Public Affairs Specialist for the US Forces Korea.
“During Armistice talks, North Korea desired a return of all territory North of the 38th Parallel where they began the war. Since the battle line continued up and across the country, and due to continuing operations by the UN Command, North Korea eventually accepted this blue line as the Military Demarcation Line and that was roughly the centre point for the forces that were engaged in fighting throughout that time period.Extract from an interview with Lieutenant Commander Christopher Dignan of the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission recorded at Camp Boniface, Panmunjom.
Once the line was agreed to both sides had 72 hours to withdraw 2 kilometres either side of that line. One that was completed that set up the 4 kilometre wide, 241 kilometre long Demilitarized Zone, which runs from coast to coast.”
