Over the course of 25 years, the U.S. and other states have employed four separate strategies to prevent or inhibit North Korea's pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability, none of which have yielded definitive success. The current efforts through the Six-Party Talks (also encompassing separate bilateral understandings between the United States and North Korea) seem likely to achieve measurable results, especially the capping of Pyongyang's inventory of fissile material. But a host of larger issues remain unresolved, including the dismantlement of North Korea's known nuclear infrastructure and (in a more long-term sense) the disposition of North Korea's weapons-related materials and technology, fissile material inventory, and any completed weapons.
