1992 Denuclearization Agreement

The action plan also includes five working groups that will review and develop concrete plans: economic and energy cooperation; denuclearization; Implementation of a peace and security mechanism for North-East Asia; Relations between LaCorĂ©e and the United States; North Korea`s relations with Japan. January 30, 1992: More than six years after the NPT was signed, North Korea concludes a comprehensive safeguard agreement with the IAEA. March 17, 2011: South Korea rejects North Korea`s recent offer and calls for steps to show the sincerity of North Korea`s commitment to denuclearization before multilateral talks can resume. In response to the review agreement, the United States removed North Korea from the State Department`s list of terrorist organizations. October 9, 2018: The Deputy Foreign Ministers of China, North Korea and Russia hold a trilateral meeting in Moscow, during which the three sides issued a joint statement reaffirming the desire to denuclearize the Korean peninsula and calling on the UN Security Council to adapt sanctions against North Korea in light of its denuclearization measures. The statement also condemned “independent sanctions.” 21-22 April 1996: The United States and North Korea meet in Berlin for their first round of bilateral missile talks. The United States suggests that North Korea should comply with the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), a voluntary international agreement to control the sale of ballistic systems, components and technologies. North Korea reportedly demanded compensation from the United States for the missile shortfall. October 19, 2017: At an event organized by the Foundation for Defense and Democracy, U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster refuses to deter North Korea and insists on the country`s complete denuclearization. September 27, 2018: U.S.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo chairs a U.N. Security Council meeting on North Korea and non-proliferation. Pompeo and several other foreign ministers are calling on the Council to continue sanctions against North Korea until a complete denuclearization is achieved. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi say sanctions could be eased in the face of increased diplomacy with North Korea. In accordance with the joint declaration, both parties will carry out inspections of the sites chosen by the other party and agreed by mutual agreement between the two parties. The two Koreas also established the Joint Commission for the Control of Nuclear Energy (JNCC South-North) in March 1992 as a mechanism for implementing the Joint Declaration of Denuclearization (JDD). The JNCC has not been able to agree on the mutual inspection regime and has been stalled since 1993. This declaration, the result of the third inter-Korean summit, has much in common with the 2007 declaration.

It contains some new verbal twists on ancient issues, such as the creation of a “sustainable and solid peace regime on the Korean peninsula.” It also proclaims “the common goal of achieving, through complete denuclearization, a nuclear-weapon-free Korean peninsula.” January 4, 2008: KCNA issues a statement from the North Korean Foreign Ministry in which it states that North Korea “wrote a report on the nuclear declaration last November and informed the U.S. page of its contents.” The statement also accuses the other parties of issuing their obligations under an October 2007 agreement, including delays in the delivery of heavy oil to North Korea. Pyongyang has announced that it will slow down the disability process in response to delays in the delivery of energy aid.
