By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, July 27 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Saturday commemorated the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War and honored the services and sacrifices of the U.N. forces that fought against the communist North.
The Korean War began on June 25, 1950 after the communist government north of the Korean Peninsula's 38th parallel invaded South Korea. It ended on July 27, 1953 with the signing of an armistice that left the demilitarized zone separating the two countries.
