Trump — Kim Summit: A Gamble beyond Optics

This issue had crossed the limit of being a bilateral one and it impacts other stakeholders as well, hence this may not be the last call on peace of Korean Peninsula. In real terms North Korea continues to be saddled with continued economic sanctions and US continues to be suspicious of implementation of the complete, irreversible, verifiable denuclearization, hence will lift sanctions only ‘when nukes are no longer an issue’....

Not Just for Christmas

... implementation . Markets for arms transfers remain open to the North in Asia, Africa and Latin America; the interdiction of illicit cargo remains weak in practice. This regime will continue to be significant even if peace prevails. If a final settlement allows North Korea to retain its nuclear capabilities, then it is imperative that the international community continues to monitor and interdict proliferation streams. Otherwise, the Korean peninsula might become the nexus for global nuclear proliferation. In hindsight, the truce of 1914 was not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning. Likewise, the truce of 2018 is only the first stage in a prolonged, multi-part process....

Northeast Asia Security Problems: The Korean Dimension–2017

... resolve the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula for the benefit of the US. The sanction-type measures are being imposed on Chinese companies for their trade with the DPRK. The second aspect is connected with deployment of the ABM THAAD elements on the Korean Peninsula: while it is described formally as the ABM defense, in the regional context such actions not so much reduce but rather increase tensions. The presence of the ABM tempts North Korea to strike first and to try to evade a retaliation blow. Thus South Korea happened to be involved in the US–North Korean confrontation.

Hwasong-15 Missile: What's Next?

... relations between the DPRK and South Korea. The success here can be achieved only with the simultaneous solution of both tasks, namely, the freezing of North Korea's military nuclear program with its subsequent cessation, and political detente on the Korean peninsula. The resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council on North Korean nuclear and missile tests are rather tough. Nevertheless, there should not be an unreasonably broad interpretation of the stipulated articles and the adoption of new more stringent sanctions. The UN Security Council's resolutions cannot be ...

... of the international community should now be directed to an immediate start of a direct dialogue with Pyongyang on the whole range of issues related to ensuring regional security, including, of course, the establishment of nuclear-free status of the Korean peninsula.

What is the Difference between Sanctions against China and Sanctions against Russia?

... will again condemn nuclear tests as it unanimously criticized the recent missile launches. However, current events reveal contradictions between key players. Chinese and Russian companies have already been subjected to US sanctions for their ties with North Korea.

The Korean Nuclear Missile Crisis: It Takes Three to Tango

... Taipei, which effectively continues to this day. China is not going to let North Korea disappear from the political map, and will continue to view that country as its geopolitical asset for at least as long as Beijing's rivalry with Washington for the Korean Peninsula and all of East Asia continues. Should North Korea be destabilised from the inside with the threat of the disintegration of the political regime and nationhood, Beijing would do all it can to prevent Seoul from annexing the North. Chinese troops would be on North Korean soil well before the ...
