Annotation

The Korean War of 1950-1953 for many years jeopardized the possibility of unification of the two Koreas, retaining military and political tension on the peninsula; this fact is still keeping both Koreas on the brink of another military conflict. The controversial nature of the maritime demarcation line between the two Koreas, alongside unpredictable military and political decisions of North Korea leadership are the major factors predetermining the serious risks of any further provocation which might lead to a major confrontation.

        Key words: Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Republic of Korea, demarcation line, NLL, demilitarized zone, border clashes, military tension.
