North Korea takes but does not give

On Sept 19, 2005 the six-party talks drafted a peaceful resolution regarding the security concerns as a result of the North Korean nuclear weapons program. North Korea had agreed to shut down its nuclear facilities in exchange for aid and stepped towards the normalization of relations with the US. However, responding angrily to the UN Security Council’s Presidential Statement that condemned t he North Korean failed satellite launch, they declared that it would pull out of Six Party Talks and that it would resume its nuclear enrichment program in order to boost its nuclear deterrent. North Korea has also expelled all nuclear inspectors from the country. Over the past 20 years, North Korea has persistently made empty promises. Kim Jong-un has told that he is open to talks with the US and that he is awaiting Obama’s call. However, if North Korea does not stop their nuclear threats, there will be no talks or aids.
