Description Multinational force formed under the unified command of the United States. Remark
Formed in 1950 not long after the People's Army of North Korea crossed the 38th parallel into the Republic of Korea on 25 June 1950. Although the U.S. military dominated the coalition effort, 21 countries contributed combat and medical units to the United Nations Command in Korea.

Background

The Korean War was the first occasion on which members of the United Nations acted collectively to repel aggression.

Armistice negotiations began in July 1951, but hostilities continued until 27 July 1953. On that date, at Panmunjom, the military commanders of the North Korean People's Army, the Chinese People's Volunteers and US Army General Mark W. Clark, Commander-in-Chief, United Nations Command in Korea, signed the Military Armistice Agreement.
