Charles K. Armstrong, Korea Foundation Professor of Korean Studies in the Social Sciences at Columbia University, was quoted in the April 26, 2018 TIME article “Why North Korea and South Korea Are Technically Still at War.”
In the article, Professor Armstrong provides background on the longstanding conflict between North and South Korea. “The idea of the Geneva conference was that there would be a new unified Korean government established after a new election, but [delegates] couldn’t agree on the process of how that would happen,” Professor Armstrong noted. “So the Geneva conference collapsed and we’ve been in the same situation ever since. There have been periodic discussions, but the situation of conflict has never been resolved.”
