Abstract:

Since at least 1994, when the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea DPRK withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty NPT, the United States Government USG has been concerned about the stability and security on the Korean peninsula, primarily because of the DPRKs nuclear program. As recent as January 6, 2016, the DPRK conducted another nuclear test, which was largely condemned by the international community. United States Government policies are geared towards a denuclearized North Korea and have been mostly ineffective. One of the constant themes has been that before the USG will engage in either direct or indirect dialogue with the DPRK, its leadership would be required to renounce its nuclear ambitions.
