Even when a war was regarded as an extrajudicial phenomenon, peaceful resolution of international disputes was recommended to avert war and countries thus involved themselves in arrangements, mediations, and arbitrations. Since World War I, peaceful resolution of dispute has gone beyond a simple goal to become an obligation under international law as stipulated in Article 2, Paragraph 3 of the UN Charter. This obligation is backed by an appropriate dispute resolution scheme. Against this backdrop, the peaceful resolution of thorny disputes on the Korean Peninsula is the proper way to pursue peace, but opinions vary on how to turn this principle into an actual regime.
