Quo Vadis, North Korea? Prospects for Critical EU Engagement

The current North Korean nuclear and missile development programme has posed a serious threat to international peace and security. With the growing number, frequency and sophistication of testings, tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been on the rise. As a vocal proponent of global non-proliferation and disarmament regime, the EU has been vocal in its willingness to mediate talks aimed at freezing North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons program.

In this context, the EU has implemented/transpositioned the restrictive measures imposed through resolutions of the UN Security Council №2087, №2094, №2270, №2321, №2371 and №2375. The EU has reinforced them by adopting its own autonomous measures that have included arms embargo, nuclear programme related persons and entities listings, ban on export and import of goods, dual- use goods and technology, restrictions on trade, financial services, investment and transport. These measures target exclusively cutting off sources of revenue that serve to fund North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile-related programmes while seeking to protect the already restricted human rights of the civilian population.

North Korea’s provocations and multi-layered threat to the international community whether in terms of developing its own nuclear and missile capabilities or the potential transfer of the perilous technology to other volatile regimes are a serious concern for the EU. The diplomatic back channels, both on a EU and member state level, have expressed willingness and capacity to engage in future negotiations for the peaceful resolution and de-escalation of tensions.
