General Paik became the Republic of Korea’s Chief of Army and Supreme commander. After his pension in 1960 He became ambassador to ROK in China, France and finally Canada.
Since 1995 NNSC does not have any communication with the north, since at that time the Czech Republic and Poland were kicked out from their host country. But as always an invitation was send to the north (since they have participated in the past), however this time an answer was received…….
To: Colonel XXXXXXX, US army
On July 23, your side sent a telephone message of inviting our side to a so-called commemoration in the name of Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC). It is preposterous for former NNSC, the ghost mechanism to hold commemoration and it is quite farce to invite us to the infeasible event. It is a vivid mockery and provocation against our side to offer an unreasonable invitation by the armistice organ which has already ended its existence for your intentional demolition of the Armistice Agreement. Your side should not repeat such foolish act of putting ahead the fallen Armistice organ that has never acknowledged by our side. Our side warns your side that the repetition of such act will only bring our corresponding counter-measures.
From: Senior Colonel XXXXXX Korean People’s Army
I guess there was no interest to attend from their side.

Until this day, 1 ID still provides NNSC's security in the area.
