The CCP Central Committee instructs Chinese representatives at the United Nations on how to respond to the confrontation on the Korean issue. Chinese officials must express their willingness to end military action and express a desire to know the positions of the United Nations and the United States on the conditions for a ceasefire. In October 1996, the United Nations Security Council, in a statement by the President of the Security Council, Honduras, called for the ceasefire agreement to be fully maintained until it was finally redempted by a new peace mechanism. Among the favourable nations were the United States and the People`s Republic of China, two of the signatories to the state test, effectively refuting any indication that the ceasefire is no longer in force.  Ceasefire talks began on 10 July 1951 in the North Korean town of Kaessng in the north-north province of Hwanghae, near the South Korean border.  The two main negotiators were Chief of Staff Nam Il, Vice Premier of North Korea, and U.S. Vice Admiral Charles Turner Joy.  After a two-week period, on 26 June 1951, a five-part agenda was adopted until the ceasefire was signed on 27 July 1953. The points to be discussed were: however, this agreement never came, and a conference in Geneva in 1954, which was to refuse a formal peace agreement, ended without agreement. In March 2013, North Korea announced the abolition of all non-aggression pacts with South Korea. It also closed the border and the direct telephone line between the two Koreas.
 North Korea also stated that it had the right to conduct a pre-emptive nuclear attack.  A UN spokesman said that the ceasefire agreement had been adopted by the UN General Assembly and could not be unilaterally dissolved by either North Korea or South Korea.  On March 28, 2013, the United States sent two stealth B-2 Spirit bombers to South Korea to participate in ongoing military exercises in the region, including dropping ammunition on a South Korean bombing room. It was the first non-stop B-2 tour from the United States to Korea.  Following this mission, North Korean media announced that they were preparing missiles ready to attack U.S. targets.  In May 2013, North Korea proposed to open negotiations for a peace treaty to replace the ceasefire agreement.    The Korean ceasefire agreement (Korean: PASSAIT휴전협정, Chinese: 朝鲜停战协) is the ceasefire that led to a complete cessation of hostilities during the Korean War.
