Chapter Summary

If 2006-07 was a period when relations between the two Koreas moved from hostility to a return to engagement, 2007-08 followed the reverse path. The government of the Republic of Korea (ROK - South Korea) under President Roh Moo-hyun pursued with considerable success a determined policy of engagement once the freeze in relations that followed the post-2006 nuclear test was lifted. Well before the ROK presidential election in December 2007, it was clear that ROK policies towards the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK - North Korea) would be in more critical hands from 2008. After the February 2007 breakthrough in the Six Party Talks, North- South relations gradually entered a new and more positive phase that lasted until the change of ROK president in February 2008. Most important of all, however, as proof of improving relations was the second North-South summit.
