National Security Council Report, NSC 157/1, 'US Objective with Respect to Korea Following an Armistice'
This document was made possible with support from Leon Levy Foundation
NSC 157/1 analyzes the situation following the armistice in Korea and the problem of Korea's division in half. The report analyzes the North Korea/Communist, US, and South Korean positions regarding reunification. Although a unified Korea allied militarily with the US is not seen as a possibility, the report concludes that it might still be possible to achieve "a unified, neutralized Korea under a substantially unchanged ROK [South Korea]."
