ABSTRACT

When USA, the utmost strongest country in the world enforces anti‐NK policy in early 2000s, North Korea started the security strategy to exchange the existing nuclear weapons with security. In 2009, the Obama Administration was constituted declaring the improvement of relationship with hostile countries and Kim Jung‐eun succeeding system was established in full, North Korea evolved existing security strategy a step further. North Korea‐US Agreement on February 29 in 2012 was the first accomplishment after North Korea changed their security strategy. However, USA did not make promised actions when North Korea fired long‐distance rocket in April, claiming that it is the violation of 2·29 agreement, and North Korea‐US relationship became bad to worse with some more incidents. Furthermore, with domestic political situation changes in North Korea with the establishment of the Kim Jung‐eun administration which officially started in April in 2012, the Korean Peninsula in 2013 is facing serious risk of war. In particular, North Korea showed intention to transit the existing strategy to exchange nuclear weapons with security claiming ‘Completion of Denuclearization Negotiation’ in January, 2013.
