For decades, the North Korean nuclear problem has been at the center of Russian, American, and Chinese foreign policy. North Korea seeks to exchange its nuclear program for security guarantees and economic support. Washington will not move forward until North Korea’s program is dismantled. China and Russia are active moderators between the two. But the issue is not only how to escape the crisis, but how to lay a new foundation for peace on the Korean peninsula.
