Editorial

Testing times in the Korean Peninsula

North Korea testing a hydrogen bomb clearly shows that, regime believes nuclear deterrence is the only way forward to protect the regime. Old policies are no longer working and a new approach is necessary to deescalate tensions. USA policy under mr.Trump has been Maximum pressure on engagement with China. In this scenario, for china nuclear North Korea is a lesser threat than the collapse of the regime. So, its support is half hearted.

Inconsistency in USA policy is also a reason for the present situation of dead lock. USA has a greater objective of unification of korea and is an ally for South Korea and Japan. In post Cold War era, USA and USSR withdrew Naval and Tactical nuclear weapons globally, both korea’s have signed a joint declaration on the denuclearization of Korean Peninsula. Later, with resumption of South Korea - USA military exercises positions got hardened.

In 1993, North Korea threatened to withdraw from NPT and an agreement with USA has led to its postponement and USA has promised for two nuclear reactors to it. They are never delivered to them. Clinton administration also has extended aid of $800mn. Here, direct talks between USA and North Korea yielded results.

Bush administration went back on 1994 framework agreement and declared North Korea as an Axis of Evil. Later North Korea has quit from NPT and six party talks tried to appease the situation. They emphasized on a peace treaty to replace 1953 armistice. Later USA imposed new sanctions and North Korea responded with a nuclear test. Six party talks have failed.

So, the way forward is larger goals like denuclearization and reunification have to be set aside. Direct negotiations need to be initiated.
