North Korean policies frequently seem intended to raise tensions with the United States and other countries in the region. Nevertheless, based on what is known about the North Korean leadership, the argument that it is not politically possible for Pyongyang to reach a rapprochement with the United States or South Korea should be rejected. Denny Roy explores the possibility of denuclearization negotiations with North Korea.
