ABSTRACT
This paper places President Park Geun-hye's policy of building trust with North Korea in the difficult context of North Korea's threats against South Korea and the United States, and the prospect that North Korea soon will produce nuclear warheads for its Nodong missiles. Nuclear warheads on the Nodongs will give North Korea a new instrument to pursue provocative acts against South Korea. It signifies the death of denuclearization as a credible policy priority for South Korea and the United States. The paper contends that a new strategy is needed to replace denuclearization. South Korea must take the leading role in developing new issues in its diplomacy toward Pyongyang. President Park could propose multiple negotiations over at least six South-North issues that could yield outcomes favorable to South Korea. The paper also suggests ways for the Park Government to coordinate with the United States over strengthening deterrence against a North Korea with nuclear warheads.
