Abstract

Abstract The two most pressing problems that faced North Korea in 2003 were how to resist pressure on nuclear issues from the international community and how to cope with a crippled economy. For the former, North Korea demonstrated superficial flexibility by participating in multilateral talks but, in substance, persisting in its demands. For the latter, the country showed substantive flexibility by stepping up economic reform, recruiting young, reform-minded new faces into the leadership, and pushing for economic cooperation with the South.
