On June 25, 1950, North Korean troops started the Korean War by invading South Korea. Two days later, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution calling member nations to help defend South Korea. In all, 16 nations sent troops to assist South Korea; over 90 percent were American. By September, United Nations forces had been pushed back to the Pusan Perimeter. On September 15, 1950, UN forces landed at Inchon, cutting off North Korean forces in the south. They pushed all the way to the Yalu River, which separated North Korea from China. Uneasy with UN forces on its border, China intervened in the war and pushed UN forces south of the 38th Parallel. Truce talks began in July 1951, and in July 1953 the two sides signed an armistice ending the war.
