For the first time ever, journalists were invited to a meeting solely with the United Nations Command.
The sessionw as held to clarify the UNC's role, intentions and goals in a period of change, as the South Korean government push for peace and engagement with the North.
Deputy Commander of the UNC Wayne Eyre at Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek said the UNC will stay on the peninsula even after the two Koreas bring an end to the armistice agreement.
When asked about the Command's role if a peace treaty can be forged he replied, that will depend on the UN Security Council and the political decision of the U.S.
"We don't know. It will be a political decision. We focus greatly on efforts on maintaining the armistice agreement and ensuring the stability of South Korea."
Eyre added the UNC fully supports the opening of the Peace Trails leading to the Demilitarized Zone along three inter-Korean border towns: Goseong, Cheorwon and Paju.
