Administrative history: The United Nations Commission for the Unification and Rehabilitation of Korea (UNCURK) was established in 1950 to bring about an independent democratic government for all of Korea; it was dissolved in 1974. United Nations troops participated in the Korean War from 1950 to 1954. The UNMCK had been managed by UNCURK until UNCURK was dissolved in 1974. In February 1974 UNCURK transferred the management of the UNMCK to the Commission for the UNMCK consisting of 11 member nations.
