Chapter Summary

Inevitably, issues relating to the decisions by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, North Korea) to test a series of missiles in July 2006, and then to conduct a nuclear test in October 2006 dominated the international activities of both the DPRK and the Republic of Korea (ROK, South Korea) during the period under review. The DPRK’s ability to escape from isolation and tap into foreign assistance was severely handicapped by these two decisions, while the ROK struggled hard to maintain its policy of engagement in the face of widespread international condemnation of the DPRK’s actions. An apparent breakthrough in February 2007 on the nuclear issue raised expectations in both countries of a more favourable international environment in 2007-08.

Keywords: Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK); foreign relations; Republic of China (RPC)
