ABSTRACT

Nuclear Proliferation on the Korean Peninsula   [open pdf - 670KB]

"The issue of global proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), in general, has obvious security implications for the United States and the international community as a whole as well as regional states where affected. On the Korean peninsula, in particular, where a volatile armistice has been in effect since the cessation of hostilities in 1953, the potential development by North Korea/Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) of an indigenous nuclear weapons capability is viewed as a serious challenge to regional stability with adverse policy ramifications for U.S. national security interests."
