shortly after those countries underwent democratization following the collapse of the Soviet Union and
the dissolution of the Eastern bloc.
|The main role of the NNSC today is to maintain and to build relations with both sides and maintain channel
of communications open between them. Today five Swiss representatives and five Swedish representatives
are stationed in Panmunjom, South Korea, on duty for the NNSC. Presently, their main task is to show
presence at the inner Korean border and thus demonstrate that the ceasefire is still in force.
