A binding treaty to end the Korean War, which was resolved with an armistice agreement, would likely require extensive negotiations with multiple countries, as well as the approval of two-thirds of the U.S. Senate.

The South Korean Ministry of Unification supported the foreign minister's position by alleging that the request for a waiver is meant to facilitate the opening of a joint liaison office for the two Koreas and not an attempt to reduce sanctions against Pyongyang.
"It's really pretty straightforward". "There are still steps that must be taken on the road to denuclearization - which Chairman Kim has said he will do", Brooks said.
