Challenging the NPT: North Korea's Nuclear Weapons Programme
The publication discusses the ongoing crisis between the US and North Korea and the breakdown of bilateral discussions on nuclear activities. It describes how both sides failed to live up their obligations and the consequences of diplomatic stalemate in terms of the proliferation of nuclear weapons. The brief argues that the process of six party talks involving North Korea, South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the US offers a basis for a diplomatic solution.
