No formal peace treaty was signed thereafter and the peninsular remained at war.

They both signed the agreement, putting an end to decades of conflict between the two neighbouring nations. Both the leaders agreed to keep communication, suspending all propaganda broadcasts and meeting again in Pyongyang in the fall. Nevertheless, denuclearization aspect of the whole accord has been a promising one and it remains to be seen how do US, China – the world powers look into it. The US President looked ecstatic and the whole sequence of events seems to be very encouraging for people living in the Korean peninsula.
