Stalin`s response to Mao`s Telegram of June 21, when he rejected his request for additional weapons and discussed the possibility of a ceasefire. However, this agreement was never reached and a conference in Geneva in 1954, which was to reject a formal peace agreement, ended without an agreement.

The VPA, VPA and UNC could not agree on a repatriation system, as many VPA and KPA soldiers refused to be repatriated to the North, which was unacceptable to the Chinese and North Koreans.  In the Final Ceasefire Agreement signed on July 27, 1953, a commission for the repatriation of neutral nations, chaired by Indian General K. S. 1952, saw the United States elect a new president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and on November 29, 1952, the president-elect traveled to Korea to examine what might end the Korean War.

Discussions continued slowly due to difficulties in demarcating the borders between North and South Korea.
