Moves towards peace and nuclear disarmament on the Korean peninsula... and elsewhere?

A serious threat to France’s Atom Industries

Published 7 March 2018

Published in French on 6 March 2018

North Korea declares that it is ready to renounce its nuclear weapons under certain conditions, to not attack South Korea, and to dialogue with the USA. How will Seoul and Washington respond? What will the other nuclear states do? And what about France?

In the wake of the rapprochement which the North made during the Olympics at Pyeongchang, the two Koreas are taking steps to be closer, and to reestablish their links which were strained by North Korea’s nuclear tests and missile launches.
The special envoys of the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, have now returned from their exceptional visit to the North, where they met the leader Kim Jong Un during a banquet which he gave on Monday in Pyongyang.

That delegation, led by the national security director Chung Eui-yong, went straight to the president’s palace in Seoul to report to President Moon Jae-in concerning their mission.

The President’s office then held a press conference.
The communiqué below shows that there were unprecedented diplomatic advances.
Yet they should not be very surprising.

Remember what we wrote in January 2016:
Le 4e essai nucléaire de la Corée du Nord : point de départ de l’abolition des armes nucléaires ?

Remember also that North Korea was the only nuclear-armed state to vote for negotiations for a treaty to ban nuclear weapons - that was at the UN in October 2016.
Cf. 27 octobre 2016 : le jour où le grand retournement de l’histoire est devenu possible

Remember too that three other nuclear states abstained in that vote: China, India and Pakistan.

It remains to be seen how the five other nuclear states will behave - France being one - if they lose what has been their chief pretext (after Iran) for retaining their nuclear weapons.

Will Dassault Aviation and France’s Atomic Energy Commission be able to stand the heat, a new kind of global warming? What will become of our exports of Rafale aircraft and EPR reactors? A tragedy just round the corner? Tremble, good people, we are being threatened by Peace in Korea!
