Operation Linesmen

Operation Linesmen supports the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC) to assist with the monitoring of Comprehensive Military Agreement activities within the demilitarised zone. This aims to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Operation Linesmen demonstrates Australia’s commitment to the security and stability of the Korean Peninsula, and is consistent with our close engagement with the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States on security matters.

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) will continually review its commitment against the requirements of the UNC and adjust if appropriate.
