The JSA (Joint Security Area) is where all negotiations between North and South Korea have been held since 1953, which in general have done little more than slightly ease tensions between the two nations. The border line (MDL) goes through the conference rooms and through the conference table where the North Koreans and the United Nations Command, mainly made up of South Koreans and Americans, still meet face to face.
