ABSTRACT

The Korean Peninsula is now standing at the crossroad between military crisis and peace. It is the proper time to review all the possible questions which will occur during the transition period of transferring to Korean Peace Regime, and produce proper policy options to maximize national interests. The transfer to the Peace Regime which will take place simultaneously with North Korean denuclearization is expected to raise the questions related to the maintenance or abolition of United Nations Command. Considering the historical contexts where UNC was created and developed, the questions are highly likely to cause a lot of debates which could be led to unnecessary national division and conflicts among related countries. The article tries to provide concise explanations to the historical background of UNC and major issues related with it. Together the article analyzes the recognitions and strategies of main players and policy options to deal with them.
