November 1947 - The United Nations General Assembly approves elections to be held throughout Korea to choose a provisional government for the entire county. The Soviet Union opposed this.

On May 10, 1948 the people of South Korea elected a national assembly. The assembly set up the government of the Republic of Korea. The people of north refused to take part. On September 9 North Korean Communists established the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Both sides claimed the entire country and their troops fought near the border several times from 1948 to 1950.
