Freeze your nuke program or else
The US, allied with other Asian and European countries, is using a diplomatic strategy to seek North Korea’s halt of its nuclear weapons development program. US Secretary of State Colin Powell explained that Pyongyang has “seriously violated” the 1994 Agreed Framework, in which North Korea and the US agreed to freeze their nuclear development of light-water reactors. If North Korea fails to abandon its nuclear development program, US leaders might opt for more than just a diplomatic strategy.
