Hall in Panmunjom, Witness to Great Victory in War

Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) — There is the hall, where the Korean Armistice Agreement (KAA) was signed, in Panmunjom 8 kilometers south of Kaesong City of the DPRK.

At 10:00 a.m. on July 27, Juche 42 (1953), the KAA was signed by chief delegates from the DPRK side and the U.S. side in the hall.
President Kim Il Sung examined and ratified the document on the KAA at 22:00 on July 27 in Pyongyang. That day, the President stressed that the U.S. imperialist aggressors were finally forced to kneel down before the Korean people, noting that the Korean people humbled the pride of U.S. imperialists who boasted of being “the strongest” in the world and brought about the beginning of decline for them for the first time in history.
Meanwhile Clark, the then commander of the U.S. forces in the Far East and commander of the “UN Forces”, scarcely put his tremulous signature on the agreement before saying that he felt everything was brought to naught and he thought his predecessors MacArthur and Ridgway might agree with him.
With the conclusion of the KAA, the Korean war ended in the victory of the Korean people.
The original written KAA is still preserved in the hall to tell the victory won by the Korean people in the war.
