UN: Korean Armistice Still in Force

The armistice ending the Korean War is still valid and still in force, despite North Korea's claim that it has been nullified, the top U.N. spokesman said Monday.

Martin Nesirky said the 60-year-old armistice agreement had been adopted by the U.N. General Assembly and neither North Korea nor South Korea could dissolve it unilaterally.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry last week said it was cancelling the armistice after the U.N. Security Council adopted another round of sanctions to punish Pyongyang for its latest nuclear test.
