Here is some piece of history on the Korean War–posted by The Times. A snapshot of a paper dating back to June 26, 1950 reads:

COMMUNIST TROOPS MOVE INTO S. KOREA

Forces from the Communist territory of North Korea early yesterday crossed into the territory of the Republic of Korea at a number of points and landed detachments on the east coast of South Korea. The invasion is being resisted by the South Korean forces, who have sent a message to General MacArthur asking for assistance.

The Security Council, which was summoned at the request of the United States, later in the day called for the “immediate cessation of hostilities” and for the withdrawal of North Korean forces, and asked all member nations to refrain from aiding the North Korean authorities.
