Despite the peaceful environments in most parts of the world, the security tension on the Korean peninsula has increased following North Korea's recent nuclear test. For peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the East Asian region as well, two critical factors are emphasized. First it is critical for North Korea to relinquish mass destruction weapons which threaten other countries with their peace and security. Second, it is essential for North Korea to adopt a market-oriented economy system for substantial development.
