The Korean Armistice Agreement is somewhat exceptional in that it is purely a military document—no nation is a signatory to the agreement. Specifically the Armistice Agreement:
1. suspended open hostilities;
2.withdrew all military forces and equipment from a 4,000-meter-wide zone, establishing the Demilitarized Zone as a buffer between the forces;
3.prevented both sides from entering the air, ground, or sea areas under control of the other;
4.arranged release and repatriation of prisoners of war and displaced persons; and
5.established the Military Armistice Commission (MAC) and other agencies to discuss any violations and to ensure adherence to the truce terms.
