ABSTRACT

This research focuses on the role of the United Nations during the modern history of the Korean Peninsula. The United Nations contributed to the establishment of the South Korean Government, which means the consolidation of the division of the Korean Peninsula. The United States, in spite of the opposition by the western allied countries including Canada and Australia, passed a resolution at the UN which urged the establishment of a separate government by initiating elections only in the south region of the peninsula. The United Nations which established a separate government in the south intervened in the war initiated by the North Korean People’s Army, in order to save the government set up by the United Nations. In the course of the Korean War, the United Nations which became a belligerent at the beginning of the war opened a new war by crossing the 38th Parallel after the success of returning status quo in the peninsula.
