    The Korean Crisis

    General Articles

    A deal could include partial sanctions relief and a freeze (2019). Washington rumor now has it that the Trump administration is considering offering North Korea some temporary sanctions relief for a freeze of its production of nuclear warheads and missiles. The mooted deal would also include the shutdown of North Korea’s best-known nuclear reactor, at Yongbyon. It does not, however, indicate what range missiles would be frozen. The latter matters to regional allies, especially Japan, which is threatened by shorter range missiles than North Korea would use to strike the United States mainland.

    Peace Treaty

    A Korean Peace Treaty would cause a constitutional crisis. (2019) A treaty would suggest, at least by implication, mutual recognition of the two Koreas by each other, which would create a constitutional problem for South Korea because it denies the existence of North Korea and claims sovereignty over the entire peninsula.
