Chapter Summary

Four distinct phases emerged during 2006-07 in relations between the two Koreas. The first followed on from the aftermath of the September 2005 Six Party Talks agreement. In May-June 2006, the relatively positive atmosphere of the earlier period gave way to growing tensions in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)’s relationship with the outside world as US pressure appeared to increase and as it became clear that the DPRK was about to abandon its self-imposed moratorium on missile tests. Tension did not abate after the missile tests as it became more and more obvious that the DPRK was also on the point of testing a nuclear device. From the test in October until February 2007, relations remained strained as the ROK struggled to preserve its policy of engagement. A new positive phase then began with a further Six Party agreement reached in Beijing in mid-February.
