Is New Zealand still at war with Poland and China?

There are a couple of things you really should know about the Korean War.

  1. It was authorised by the United Nations (because the Ruskies were boycotting the Security Council over the non-inclusion of Red China); and
  2. It never ended, there’s merely been a ceasefire in place since 1953 – never a formal peice.

Now, international law is not my forte – so I am open to correction on this, but:

  1. New Zealand participated in United Nations operations pursuant to Resolution 84.
  2. China, the USSR, and a whole bunch of soon to be Warsaw Pact countries joined the Norks as beligerents.

Question: Is there an argument to be made that we are still legally at war with those beligerents that still exist?
