On July 27, 1953, the participants in the Korean War conclude an armistice. The latter, as our archives lead us to see, does not, however, contribute to sealing peace between North Korea and South Korea.

On July 27, 1953, the People's Republics of North Korea and China signed the Panmunjeom Armistice with the United Nations, which officially ended the Korean War.

As this extract from from the show Definite Pastof May 29, 1980, the Korean War broke out on June 24, 1950.

Pierre Valcourt narrates this excerpt.

On June 24, 1950, North Korea attempted to invade South Korea. The United Nations calls on the United States and willing countries to help South Korea repel the invasion.

This involvement of the United States United and other Western countries in turn provoke the intervention of communist China alongside North Korea.

The Korean War internationalized and became one of the most dangerous moments of this period which occurred almost immediately after the end of the Second World War and which was called the Cold War.

Among the countries participating in the Korean War was Canada.

The presence of 4,000 Canadian soldiers in this conflict in Asia explains why Radio-Canada sent a war correspondent to the front.

This is René Lévesque. He will transmit several reports on the progress of the conflict.

Here is an extract from one of his reports in a special program,Ici Radio- Canada,broadcast on October 9, 1986, and which relates the history of news at Radio-Canada between 1936 and 1959.

The Cold War has retained its full meaning here.

A quote from Paul Gascon

July 27, 2003, is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the armistice between the two Koreas.

< p class="StyledImageCaptionLegend-sc-57496c44-2 sbxsP">Report by journalist Paul Gascon who summarizes the situation on the Korean peninsula 50 years after the signing of the Panmunjeom armistice which officially ended the Korean War.

But, as the host Josée Thibeault of Téléjournal pointed out that day,the two countries are still technically at war, as no peace treaty has been ratified by the belligerents.

The following report by journalist Paul Gascon reminds us that the Korean conflict is one of the last vestiges of the Cold War.

From the 250-kilometer demilitarized zone which demarcates the two borders, North and South Korean soldiers look at each other like china dogs.

In 2003, the situation was still very tense.

North Korea is developing a nuclear program. North Korea's supreme leader, Kim Jong-il, plans to renege on the 1953 armistice.

< p class="StyledImageCaptionLegend-sc-57496c44-2 sbxsP">Reporting by journalist Catherine Kovacs following North Korea's first underground nuclear test.

The possibility of a reunification of the two Koreas, as well as the feeling of security on the peninsula, seemed to become more distant on October 9, 2006, as highlighted in a report by journalist Catherine Kovacs presented toTéléjournal/Montréal.

North Korea has just carried out an underground nuclear test.

The bomb would have had more or less the same power as that used against the Japanese city of Hiroshima in 1945.

Even more frightening, North Korea is calculated to have stockpiled enough plutonium to make six more bombs.

The head of the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, considers that this nuclear test risks encouraging the proliferation of nuclear bombs around the world and contribute to increased destabilization of the planet.

In 2022, the number of bombs that North Korea could have in its arsenal was estimated at between 30 and 55.

South Korea, for its part, is protected by what is called the American “nuclear umbrella”.

The North Korean army and navy number 1.3 million soldiers; those of South Korea would have 625,000.
