Background

Since the 1950s, North Korea has been the most secretive country about its nuclear program. The country has been developing its nuclear arsenal so secretively that most powerful nation in the world is wary and feels threatened. N-Korea joined Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty(NPT) in 1985 which aims at nuclear disarmament and encourages peaceful use of nuclear energy. However, in 2002 US revealed that N-Korea was developing nuclear weapons which violated NPT. In 2003, N-Korea quit the NPT.

Opinion

How can one trust a nation who does not keep its own word? Certainly, N-Korea is not a threat only to its rival US but also to world peace and every nation should stand up united against such notorious country. Recent news says N-Korea possesses the hydrogen bomb which more disastrous than the atom bomb. This nation needs to be stopped and if possible every country should lay sanctions on N-Korea to make it possible.
