One Korea - Two Nations

Since the signing of the Armistice Agreement in 1953, the international community has pursued a range of talks, actions and initiatives aimed at achieving a final peace agreement for Korea. 70 years later a great deal has changed on the Korean peninsula, but the two nations are no closer to achieving an enduring peace. Is this due to the actions of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), the Republic of Korea (South Korea), China or the USA? Examining the influences of the key players in the Korean Peninsula indicates that a solution is not likely in the near term, and why the Korean Peninsula could serve as a hinge point for a future conflict in the region.
