November 29 – Nuke-Free North Korea?

The recent developments regarding North Korea’s nuclear arsenal have taken the world by surprise. Significant measures have been taken to, at least temporarily, end the testing of missiles and nuclear devices. However, to start a denuclearization process, North Korea has demanded significant security guarantees from the United States and the international community. Despite the lack of real progress, demands have been raised by China, Russia and South Korea that reciprocal measures in the form of lifting sanction should be initiated right away. Is this the right way to proceed or will it risk turning North Korea into a permanent nuclear state?
